Have you tried without specifying "--rate 75" ?
Since LCD pixels remains "on" (or "off") all the time (as opposed to CRT
were pixel brightness was fading in a few milliseconds), there's no need
for high refresh rate (i.e. how often the image is actually changed, so
you eye perceive a motion). The default (60hz) ought to be just fine.
(Of course, have a good response time is useful, to avoid blur effect,
but that's another story).
