I did the same thing with my old IBM G70 monitor. Did you know that a monitor that does 1280x1024 @ 60Hz max, is capable of 1280x1024 @ 100Hz although it still flickered
I think Windows XP must stop you from being able to choose refresh rates beyond what your monitor can do, as it stayed at 60Hz when I set it any higher. It also did the same thing at other resolutions, so I would think it is doing the same for you and is actually still at 60Hz.
How's the laptop workin out?
Oh, my laptop display doesn't flicker when at 60Hz either, so I think that TFT's don't have the same limits as CRT's when it comes to flickering.
