Changing resolution causes refresh rate problem

This is now my 3rd install of Fedora 9.

The last 2 installs, I tried changing the resolution. Every time I did that, the refresh rate got screwed up and I couldn't log back in and change the settings back.

How can I change the resolution and make sure that the refresh rate stays within my monitor's range?

We first need to know what desktop manager you are using and if your changing the setting via the gui or editing the Xorg.conf file

Typically through the gui, when you change the resolution you also need to ensure the correct monitor / lcd is setup with the correct refresh rates.
