In Windows XP I used a program called Reforce to force my refresh rates for specific resolutions I would use while gaming. That meant 100hz for 1024 and lower resolutions. Now in Windows 7 I've tried every possible way of solving this but I'm seriously out of ideas now, also I've spent several hours on these forums + other forums trying to find a solution. The problem is, I can't force the frequency for the resolutions with any program, nor from Nvidia control panel. You can see my other posts on similar threads.
Just found another bug, It doesn't allow me to change resolutions either properly, If I go to normal Screen Resolution and change it, it somehow only scales it, my monitor still says 1280x1024 if I put it to 1024x768 for example. That could have something to do with the refresh rates.
My monitor is Samsung SAMTRON 98 pdf 19" CRT Samsung Samtron 98PDF 19 inch CRT Monitor - Product details and features - DealTime
Windows 7 atm tells me my monitors max resolution is 1280x1024 at 85hz.
Things tried so far:
Reforce (in administrator + compatibility)
Refreshlock (in administrator + compatibility)
NVIDIA control panel custom resolutions
Powerstrip (in administrator + compatibility)
Made my own driver
for the monitor with powerstrip
Rivatuner (in administrator + compatibility)
Probably something more aswell I can't remember right now. None of the above has proven to be any successfull. The only idea I have is to plug this monitor to a Windows XP system, copy the driver it automatically uses for this monitor in XP since it worked before (with reforce) and try it out in Windows 7.
Please, do help me. I'm seriously getting annoyed by this thing since everything else in Windows 7 have worked fantastic and I really love it, I just can't do any gaming without getting 100hz to FPS games.
Also I'm not sure if this thread should be in driver category.
