Increase the refresh rate on my monitor [closed]

I recently purchased a new computer and I am using the Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100 as my primary video output. I connected my 23″ Full HD WideScreen monitor and when I use the latest version of iTunes, my screen starts to flicker.

I check the refresh rate and it is set to 60 mhz and I can not increase it. I checked the current driver under device manager and it has “Generic PnP Monitor” driver.

Is there a way for me to increase the refresh rate without installing a video card?


It is an LCD monitor that is hooked up to a VGA port. It does not have an on-board DVI port.


I updated the my monitor drivers from “Generic PnP Monitor” to the my monitor’s drivers and it did not allow me to increase the refresh rate. Also, the flicking still occurs when I use the latest version of iTunes.


Normally, TFT displays have a fixed refresh rate of 60Hz. This problem might be more dependend on the (slow) speed of the integrated graphics device that is too slow to handle this resolution.
