1. Make sure you are using the latest driver for your LCD monitor. If not, visit the manufacturer website and download the latest driver for your version of Windows.

2. Find default checked box labeled with the text: Hide modes that this monitor cannot display, then uncheck it which means you force the computer to use a refresh rate which is not technically supported by the monitor. Attention: This is not a recommended choice because it may damage your monitor, you should not do this unless you have no other choices.
