Windows 7: "out of range" monitor message after Win 7 upgrade

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
 
 

Unfortunately there isn't an 'auto adjust' button on the monitor.

I've just researched the monitor I have as I don't have the manual for it & the resolution of the monitor is 1280 x 768 and the refresh rate is 50Hz, but the lowest setting on the video card is 60hz, but when I had it set to 60hz in XP it worked fine. Anyone any advances on ways round this problem? Is there perhaps a way of running the drivers in XP mode or I've seen quite a few people talking about the program PowerStrip, can this program force there is be a lower fresh rate?

You might be able to get it to work by installing the XP drivers in compatibility mode.

right click the installer>properties>compatibility>XP sp3
