I have an Asus FN8 laptop and I can't seem to figure out how to change the refresh rate on the monitor. I have all the latest drivers for my graphics card and monitor but for some reason I can only get a 67ghs refresh rate in catalyst control center and in vista as an option. I am running vista 32 and I know that vista controls the refresh rate but when I go to change it this is the only option I have. The option to hide modes this monitor can't display isn't highlighted as well so I couldn't even check it if I wanted to. Any one got an idea as to why I can't change the refresh rate? Thanks in advance.

60Hz is normal for the TFT screens on laptops. TFT screens use a totally different technology than CRT monitors and do not suffer from flicker like CRT monitors. Therefore they do not require the high refresh rate that CRT monitors require. There is no good reason for wanting to increase it anyway if the display is not flickering -- that's the only purpose it serves and so is largely irrelevant for laptop screens.
