OpenGL Games in Windows 2000

How to stop OpenGL games in Win2K from defaulting to 60Hz screen refresh.

If you're running OpenGL games in Win2K and you're running a graphics card from Nvidia, such as TNT or Geforce, you can edit the installation file for the driver to remove the 60Hz option in the resolution you play in. Doing so forces the game to run in the next higher refresh rate (e.g., 70Hz). To get even higher refresh rates, remove higher rates (e.g., 70Hz) to force games to run at 75Hz. The one drawback to this solution is that you then can't use the 60Hz refresh rate even in Win2K because you've disabled 60Hz for the specific resolution.
