Monitor Refresh Rate Mandrake 9.1

Can anyone tell me what to do to get Mandrake run on 85Hz insted on 7Hz... I've edited the XF86Config-4 for a dozen times by now, I've tried with MDK Control center and its still the same...

It doesn't matter what values I enter at "Horizontal" and "Vertical Frequency" it's all the same after I come back ro KDE... still 75Hz...
