Default Graphics card or driver prob.

Hi.
I've got a slight problem with my gfx driver or card, I don't know which one. Everytime I switch on my computer, I always have to change the screen refresh rate back up to 75 Hertz from 60 Hertz. I don't know why it does it. Any help would be appreciated.

Windows XP Pro SP 2
AMD Athlon 64-bit 3200+
180 gig HDD
1024 mb DDR RAM
nVidia GeForce 6600 GT (128mb)
Latest nVidia Drivers
