Any monitor flickers at 60 hertz. The usual reason for being unable to use faster refresh frequencies is that the correct video card driver and/or monitor driver are not installed. Another possibility is that the resolution is set too high.
Assuming Windows XP, right click on the background, choose "properties", settings tab, advanced button. Check to make sure your video card is named - the monitor is not as important but would certainly be helpful. If not, did out the CD's that came with them or download drivers from the manufacturer's website.
On the other possibility, on the adapter tab, there ought to be a "list all modes" button so you can choose resolution and refresh rate at the same time. Your LCD monitor will be fussy about the resolution, so you may need several tries to get something that looks good and doesn't flicker.
