monitor refresh rate too low

hello i just installed mandriva 10.1. Everything seems to be fine except the monitor refresh rate is set very low at 71hz, 1028x768 screen size. 71hz is the only option that i can choose from the menu. How can i make it so that i can display at least 85hz? I really need help here to fix this, my eyes are bleeding as i type this post. please help!! thanks

Well, if you open a terminal window in root you can re-run "xorgconfig" Or you can edit your xorg.conf file with a text editor, also in root. such as vi, emac, etc...

vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf

There may be several places you need to change it depending on your configuation. take care not to set it to high, and that you are not just guessing at the rate.
