Hello again. I have/Had a weird problem with this old CRT im using where along the sides it gets all wavy and you can see lines going down the middle. I first tried each of the refresh modes listed, it was set to 75H at first, then i tried 70, and ,60H and it progressively got worse. Because i dont care about the monitor much anyway., i unchecked that box that said "display only modes that my hardware can support. " And set it to 85 H. Now, the problem appears to be gone, but, will my monitor explode in the future? =P

That's fine, if windows allows you too then yes, if you need the force the Hertz then yes this can be dangerous but i don't believe that it will explode. Just feel the rear of the monitor for any unnecessary heat
