Are you sure your monitor can handle a higher refresh rate? If you set it up too high you may damage your display

Now I refresh rate is OK! I have Increase it to 85Hz, but I resolution change to 1024*768. If resolution is 1280*1024, the refresh rate only can
select 60Hz.

The resolution and the refresh rate is bound to each other! Right? Right!
