    Hello! I changed the resolution to 1024x768 to start a game. When I tried turning back to my default resolution (800x600 @ 80 hz), it came up that this particular refresh rate isn't available as an option. For years I have used it, but now I don't seem to find it. I tried unticking the "hide modes this monitor can't display" button, but 80 hz didn't show up. I tried using the "List all modes" button under the Adapter tab, but such a resolution didn't come with this particular refresh rate. In fact, 80 hz was nowhere to be found. Any other rate is absolutely harmful to my eyes.
    The monitor is CTX - very old. I'm running Windows XP Sp2 and my graphic card is Nvidia 9500 GT. Please, help - it is painful to use this monitor and I really can't afford another one right now..
