    I'm using an LCD screen that has an inbuilt DVD player. I guess it's basically a T.V. but I use it for my PC.

    I've got my resolution set to 1600x1024 and Windows 7 tells me that I can go up 120hz, but when I choose it the input is not supported.

    I understand that VGA Monitors can't support 120hz, but I'm wondering why it says I can use it?

    My NVIDIA control panel says I can go up to 85hz, however.

    The lower I set my resolution = the more hertz Windows tells me I can use, but I still can't use more than 85hz.

    Anyone able to explain this to me? Thanks.
