Standard human eyes can't tell the difference between 60 fps and above 60 fps, so what's the point?

I wouldn't think it likely the monitor's damaged, I'd think it's just that you changed the profile Windows associates with it to say "Run this monitor at 120hz" and when it boots up and tries to do so the blinking light is its way of saying "Hey, I can't at run at 120hz!".

Try starting up in safe mode.

Wut. That's utterly wrong, the human eye's threshold for update frequency is certainly above 60hz, although probably not much above 120hz (if even that much). I can tell when a CRT display is at 60hz or 90hz just from looking at it because the entire screen refreshes. Of course this depends on the individual as well.

Press F8 while the pc is booting, select enable low resolution video. This will force Windows to 640x480 which all monitors support. Once on the Desktop you can change back to the native resolution of your monitor.

has anyone here actually gotten an x-star to got past 60hz with a nvidia 760 card? Is there something special that needs to be done first?

The card has nothing to do with it. It's all on the monitor.

The eye's "limitation" is somewhere near 900~FPS. The human eye is not digital, it's analog and sees at the speed of light.
The brains average maximum limitation is around 250~FPS. Fighter pilots can notice blips at even higher refresh rates in their peripheral vision than this average.
The average focused vision limitation stops at around 160. Detailed vision (your center of focus) sees at a much lower rate than your peripheral vision.

It is my understanding that the retina digitizes information before transmitting it through the optic nerve. So saying the eye isn't digital is not entirely true because parts of are certainly digital. Do you have sources for that info? I can't verify any of the numbers you presented.
