can't adjust refresh rate on external monitor connected to T41p with ATI video

    I just installed the latest (probably my mistake) ATI drivers
    ( on my T41p with has a ATI Mobility Fire GL T2. When my
    T41p is hooked up to an external monitor (Sony G500), I can only seem
    to get it run at 60 Hz, even when adjusting throught display
    properties. When I go to the DisplayProperties/Advanced/Displays tab,
    it shows my external monitor set at 1600x1200 and 60Hz. But it will
    not let me change the refresh rate, and when I check the rate on the
    monitor itself, it is still set to 60Hz, even though the resolution is
    set correctly.

    Any ideas on solutions will be greatly appreciated.
