EnumDisplaySettings() and display frequencies

I have an app which allows the user to switch display resolution. On NT I get the display frequencies available for a particular resolution and allow the user to pick which one to use. On one particular machine (DELL 486 with Cyrix video card running NT 4) one of the avilable frequencies returned by EnumDisplaySettings() is a frequency of 1 Hz! Is this the default hardware setting? Should I treat settings below, say 20 as default frequencies?

Yes, obviously the video driver is not returning the correct frequency value. Treat anything below 30 as default. The lowest I've seen is 40 or 45.

From the DDK:
When you call the EnumDisplaySettings function, the dmDisplayFrequency member may return with the value 0 or 1. These values represent the display hardware's default refresh rate. This default rate is typically set by switches on a display card or computer motherboard, or by a configuration program that does not use Win32 display functions such as ChangeDisplaySettings.
