Game won't run above 60Hz refresh

    This is a rather tough problem; the game is Microsoft Rallisport
    Challenge, released in 2002, and of course neither Microsoft or the games
    developer (Atari) will offer any tech support for a game this "old". The
    problem is that the game does not have any adjustments for refresh, and it
    always runs at the default 60Hz, nomatter what my desktop refresh rate is.
    My video card is an Nvidia Ti4400, and it has the proper drivers installed.
    I'm wondering if the problem is the monitor driver; I'm using a "default"
    driver because my monitor is too old (or generic) to get a mfr's driver.
    Is there any way to lock the refresh rate to at least 75Hz? If I can't run
    this game above 60, I might as well toss it because I can't look at a screen
    for more than a minute or two at such a low refresh rate. I don't know why
    developers often neglect to integrate high refresh support into their games,
    I guess they must figure most people don't mind 60Hz.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You cant set a profile for the game in your graphics adapter settings for
    the refresh rate?
