If this is a TFT screen, then 60Hz is normal.

If it's a CRT then at least 75, better 85 if your monitor supports it.

Go to Display in the Control Panel- then settings - advanced - adapter - and depending on your graphics card, you should see "Display all modes", or similar. Pick the one you want from the list.

I am running a p42.6 256mb ram 60gig hard drive at the moment a msi motherboard with inbuilt sis graphics but im gettin a g-force 4mx on the 31st i tried going into display settinds and changed it, but everytime you but up it goes back to 60 even on a m8s with a g-force 4 mx i know its been a common fault with xp but a fix or somesthing surely must be out so i dont need to change settins every time i boot up (which is alot)

PSF - has provided a link for you. This only applies when playing games though. Did this not work??

Is this 60 mhz refresh rate for the desktop or during games?

Are the monitor drivers install?
