I got the DEVMODE stuff but no "dmDisplayFrequency" where do i put it. and how do i use it ?..

it looks like this now:

DEVMODE dmScreenSettings;
memset(&dmScreenSettings,0,sizeof(dmScreenSettings));
dmScreenSettings.dmSize=sizeof(dmScreenSettings);
dmScreenSettings.dmPelsWidth = width;
dmScreenSettings.dmPelsHeight = height;
dmScreenSettings.dmBitsPerPel = bits;
dmScreenSettings.dmFields=DM_BITSPERPEL|DM_PELSWIDTH|DM_PELSHEIGHT;

...

[totatlly misread the thread]

you are talking about refresh rate, yes? not FPS?

ok.. i have fixed it now anyway ..

did it like this :

DEVMODE dmScreenSettings;
memset(&dmScreenSettings,0,sizeof(dmScreenSettings));
dmScreenSettings.dmSize=sizeof(dmScreenSettings);
dmScreenSettings.dmPelsWidth = width;
dmScreenSettings.dmPelsHeight = height;
dmScreenSettings.dmBitsPerPel = bits;
dmScreenSettings.dmDisplayFrequency = hertz; <-- ! NEW ! --
dmScreenSettings.dmFields=DM_BITSPERPEL|DM_PELSWIDTH|DM_PELSHEIGHT|DM_DISPLAYFREQUENCY; <-- added ''DM_DISPLAYFREQUENCY'' here..

also many drivers can force a particular refresh in gl/d3d through the display properties, though may need to goto advanced options.

EDIT: xp is limited to 60hz and 75hz in gl and d3d respectivly so you need to get a tweak utility for your particular video card so the driver will work "correctly". a quick search on google should find that. though i am only really aware of a fix for nvidia cards.
