Unfortunately I did a big "tl;dr" over most of that. But what I gather is you are trying to force 75Hz @ 1280*1024. If the drivers don't want to do it (which seems to be the case), the only other thing I can suggest is using PowerStrip. Its a great little app that can force settings on the GPU such as resolution, refresh rate, gamma, etc. I've used it for a while to force a 1.5 gamma in older games such as Team Fortress Classic. It can force them only when a certain application is run, or on boot. Supports hot keys as well. The only down-side (besides having an extra program running) is that the tips window comes up every boot unless you buy the pro version.
