Good evening everyone,

My laptop's monitor is locked on 120hz refresh rate, going into Intel graphic command center shows that as the default and only refresh rate available.
I tried setting a custom resolution but I received an error. Since dark souls remastered crashes if you screen's refresh rate is higher or lower than 60hz I tried a program called cru (custom resolution utility) to forcefully add a 60hz refresh rate option, which is now displayed even in the intel graphic command center. I tried working at 60hz and despite I see things a bit slowed down no major damage still showed up.

I'd like to ask you if forcing this frequency will damage my monitor or since it's a lower refresh rate it will be ok. I do anything on this laptop and can't afford buying another one for quite some time. I can definitely forget about the game if forcefully downclocking will damage my system, but I'm nowhere near being a pro and don't have the necessary knowledge to choose by myself.

Thanks for the help!
