Right click on the disktop. select properties.select settings.Now it depends on your video card and your monitor.There may be a tab for "advanced".You then have to check the tabs. If your monitor allows different refresh it will be under one of the tabs.

Right click on the desktop, select properties. there will be a dialog box withe tabs at the top, one of them will be "settings" click this one. Now it depends on your version of windows either 95 or 98, but since you have 98 there will be a button called "advanced" press this, then you will see a dialog box with tabs at the top, one of them will say "adapter" choose this tab and you should be able to change it from there. be careful though because if you set the refresh at a higher rate than your monitor can support then it can damage your monitor.

I am asking about a specific type of adapter: Trident 3D Image 9750.  Though I can set refresh rate of many other adapters, I cannot find the feature for refresh rate adjusting for this adapter.  Does that kind of video adapter not support refresh rate change at all?

The refresh rate is usually determined by the monitor. If your monitor allows different rates it will show up in the properties as described above. Do you have the proper monitor driver installed.

I had a conflict w/ my video and sound and my refresh option had disappeared. I believe the best drivers for Monitor and Adapter are first priority, then look into disabling other devices to see if they conflict.

I do not have hands on with this card so there are some questions I need to ask.

How old is the card ?

What Bus is it i.e. PCI or ISA

If it is an early PCI card of and ISA card then you could do allot worse that to try Display doctor, You can download a trial version of the software from this web site.

What this does is runs a set of diagnostics on your card and will also allow you to control the card better than windows ever could.

just to correct joed - the refresh rate is not determined by the monitor - it is determined by the video card. The video card sends its signals to the monitor and the monitor adjusts itself to suit the signal. Just thought I'd let you know.

To answer the question, I remember seeing someone suggestion of downloading the Display Doctor. I think that the program has a refresh rate adjustment feature, so I would suggest that, too.
www.scitech.com I think.
