    Can anyone recommend what kind of display card I would need to purchase in order to remedy the issue that I am having?

    timgabe,

    Seems that your current setting is using a refresh rate of 64 GHz (not 60, that's why it's erroring).
    Try going into Settings > System > Display, then click on the monitor in question (i.e. if you have two monitors click on the correct monitor. If you don't know what Windows recognizes as monitor 1 and monitor 2, click Identify.) and click on Advanced display settings.

    Under this menu, scroll down to the section that says Related settings, and underneath click on the option that says Display adapter properties. You'll see something like this:

    Under the Monitor tab, change the refresh rate from 64 to 60 hertz. Click OK, and then (I recommend this, because it happened to me once) restart.

    You should be good, assuming I am correct.

    Hello Michael,

    Unfortunately, my computer does not allow me to adjust the refresh rate. There is no option other than 60 Hz.

    I do want to reiterate my above question - if I am looking to purchase a new video card to take card of this problem, what do I need to buy?

    What's the model information of your computer (that is, assuming this PC is from Dell or some other system manufacturer).

    Hi Michael, it's a Dell Studio 540 (64 bit). It's older (2009).

    Not sure if this is important (I'm copying from the system specs page), but it also says:

    ProcessorIntel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7400 @ 2.80GHz, 2800 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)

    What are you currently using for a graphics card?

    Hi everybody, would appreciate some insight if at all possible as far as what video card I would need to purchase... my wife uses this computer for work, so the fact that it is "down and out" is kind of a problem for us.

    Probably an Nvidia GT710 or GT730 PCI-E Graphics Card, with the output sockets required for your monitor(DVI-D, VGA).

    You can get Windows 10 drivers from Nvidia and the resolutions/refresh rates won't be a problem. Yours are nothing unusual.

    I would be tempted to look inside and see what Dell have actually put in there for a Graphics Card. If you are going to replace with another Graphics Card you will be doing that anyway.
