I have a Megavision MV220 22" Widescreen Monitor, and an EVGA Geforce 8800 GTS Superclocked video card and i'm running Windows Vista. The problem is that I can't get the monitor refresh rate to go above 60 Hz and I cannot seem to find device drivers for this particular monitor. I would like to get the refresh rate to at least 75 Hz, and I'm sure this monitor can do it. It has a 5ms response time and I'm using a DVI cable.

Is there anything I can edit in the registry that will force 75Hz? Or does anyone know of drivers I should use for this monitor.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Correct me if wrong, but isn't that an LCD monitor? Refresh rates are only important with CRT monitors. So the 60Hz settting is fine.

yes it is an lcd monitor, but if a refresh rate is higher that means the picture is redrawn more often per second. which would still make for a smoother picture and less flicker.

Refresh rate is not an issue with LCD monitors. What is important is response time which is inherent to the monitor. Go here for one review of the subject.

Sidious66, there is no refresh rate for an LCD monitor.

With a CRT monitor, the pixels fade away unless, they get a refresh. LCD monitors don't work that way. They stay on until the computer (which controls each one individually) changes it.

So the old way of increasing your refresh rate to increase frame rate doesn't work.
