I have this monitor: Samsung syncmaster 700s
I know its rather old, but it still serves me good. Well almost all the
time.

The problem is refresh rate. For some reason Windows XP thinks it's
maximum refresh rate is only 75Hz. I have used it with 85Hz refresh rate
with W95, W98, but with XP I must force the 85Hz refresh rate in
display properties. I even found it's box on the attic where it is
written 85Hz at 1024x768.

Overriding refresh rate is ok for Desktop and programs, but almost all
games switch refresh rate to 75Hz. This is very annoying, as the monitor
"squeaks" quite loud at this refresh rate. I mentioned before it is
rather old.

I tried setting refresh rate in DXcontrols, various programs that claim
to fix refresh rate but with no success.

Is there any way to change the setting for this monitor. I believe there
must be some INF file where this data is stored or registry setting?
I really do not want to by myself new monitor.

Regards!

There are two things that control the refresh rate like this. First is
the drivers for your video card, second is the drivers for your monitor.
If you have installed drivers for your monitor, this may be the
problem. I would change the driver on your monitor to a Plug and Play
Monitor. You can also try updated drivers for your video card. I
suggest the Omega Drivers from www.omegadrivers.net as these allow you
to disable the drivers grabbing the DCC information from the monitor.
This will allow you to have all resolutions and refresh rates (some of
which may not work).

Thanks for the reply!

Actually I already use Omega drivers :-)
I even removed use DCC information unfortunately some time ago and
forgot about it. I just recently installed new driver version. And I
forgot to set it back. I guess I did not play games for some time.

So I removed DCC and set values by hand now it works! Thanks a lot!

Not a problem. I do that all the time :) 

Can't wait until he has fun with the new ATI Control Center. They
released an SDK for it, so he should be able to integrate all of his
stuff into it. Probably see that around the Catalyst 5.0 series coming
up near the end of this year :D

I read about that control panel. It looks like big monster, as people
reported, that it uses around 50MB of ram? Based on NET technology from MS.

Have you installed and tried it? It is much better than the old
interface and I have only been able to get it to use around 12 MB of RAM
(no where near 50MB). And yes, it is designed to work with .NET
Framework 1.1 ;)
