Hi!

Try this.
I'm not sure do the frequency change work in every case, also there might be improper values to the display so be careful whit that.

Private Declare Function EnumDisplaySettings Lib "user32" Alias "EnumDisplaySettingsA" (ByVal lpszDeviceName As Long, ByVal iModeNum As Long, lpDevMode As Any) As Boolean
 
 
Private Declare Function ChangeDisplaySettings Lib "user32" Alias "ChangeDisplaySettingsA" (lpDevMode As Any, ByVal dwflags As Long) As Long
    Const CCDEVICENAME = 32
    Const CCFORMNAME = 32
    Const DM_PELSWIDTH = &H80000
    Const DM_PELSHEIGHT = &H100000
 
 
Private Type DEVMODE
    dmDeviceName As String * CCDEVICENAME
    dmSpecVersion As Integer
    dmDriverVersion As Integer
    dmSize As Integer

    i = 0
    Do
        a = EnumDisplaySettings(0&, i&, DevM)
        i = i + 1
    Loop Until (a = False)
    Dim b&
    DevM.dmFields = DM_PELSWIDTH Or DM_PELSHEIGHT
    DevM.dmPelsWidth = iWidth

    b = ChangeDisplaySettings(DevM, 0)
End Sub
