Windows 7: Windows 7 (RC1) - Monitor Modi Problem

Windows 7 (RC1) - Monitor Modi Problem

Hi guys,

since today I've got Windows 7 RC1 64Bit installed on my PC & I've got a cruel problem.

I have an iiyama Vision Master Pro 454 and a desktop resolution of 1280x1024 with 100hz - until today!
But, it seems to be, that this is not possible with Windows 7.
Everytime if I try to want to set the hz value to more than 85, the monitor automatically turns the value back to 85.

In Counter Strike 1.6 it is the same. I've played with a resolution of 640x480 with 150hz. But now, everytime I start the game, it is in the windowmode with 60hz.

In the Nvidia Systemcontrol there was an option where you can configure user-specific resolutions to get higher frequencies (like in CS 1.6, 150hz), but it's impossible to change there anything.

I've already installed the latest Nvidia drivers for my 8800GTX and the monitor drivers as well.

I have found an tutorial, but it doesn't helped me as well: GF8800GTX / Vista 64-bit / refresh rates > 100Hz ? - Forums

Maybe someone has an another idea to help me?


Sorry for my horrible english
