You can't make your monitor use a higher frequency than it's factory standard, and screen tearing should not be an issue if you activate Vsync.

 

Vsync basically synchronises your monitor and your videocard wich means tearing won't happen anymore, altough it can introduce some other problems if you can't hit the desired 60 frames per second. 

 

While in some ocassions your videocard would be able to produce more than 60 frames per second your monitor wouldn't be able to show them(Because it runs at 60Hz), hence you should use Vsync, since not only it prevents tearing but it also keeps your videocard from offputting 200 Frames per second when your screen can only display 60.

i know Vsync but the problem is that Vsync cause lag in games

 

in some games it allow me to play at 75 refresh rate which solve the problem

 

but this is not exist in all games

Do you by any chance know the refresh rate of your monitor? there might be 75Hz ones, and some monitors display at different rates depending on the resolution, plus 75Hz isn't that common, maybe the game just doesn't support it

 

And the lag induced by Vsync is barelly noticeable unless you are a pro gamer or you have a really low framerate (In wich case tearing wouldn't be an issue)

what kind of video card is it? I know if its an AMD card, you should be able to go into the catalyst control center and manually change the frequency of the video  card to match the monitor.  If the monitor is 60 hz then that video card should also be at 60 hz. Nvidia also should have a option to change the frequency of the card manually.

I still don't see why increasing the display rate to 75Hz would remove tearing, afaik tearing occurs mostly when your video card fails to render the frames on time and sends them half done, increasing the amount of frames per second your monitor is showing would simply increase the demand wouldn't it?

your correct dat. The display rate of the monitor A: needs to be within its design limits and B: match what the video card puts out. If you want the tearing to go away the op will have to play with his settings-my best guess is he has the resolution set to high for the monitor.

Game is always changing desktop refresh rate customer service, many times i tried to change the refresh rate by changing the display setting file and put it to 60 but that doesn't appear in game. However there is no way to refresh the rate in a game.
