Windows 7: CRT monitor - refresh rates disappeared

When you installed Win 7, did you also updated your Video drivers to the latest version? I am almost sure you didn't but I am almost positive that Win 7 did and this may be causing you problems as well.

Go to device Manager and under Display Properties, tell me what you have.

Now, there is a saying that goes something like this... "if it ain't broken, don't fix it!" and since you got it working, I wouldn't change anything until you are done playing with it.

Im thinking that since 60 hz is absolute minimum maybe win 7 has eliminted it because you need more graphics card than you did in xp/vista. you wouldn't want to run a game in vga would ya?

Let us know if the other games that dont work dont have a fix

First thing I did after Win 7 clean install - was installing nVidia 190.38 latest drivers. So.. :\

Nah hope that's not true. What do you think will I be able to run the game using XP Mode? Just interesting.
