forcing brings issues.
for few games while actualy are games that try use 60hz anyway.

edit: 186.18 has't fixed this either.
really shame on few that think this aint a big deal.
its causing nothing but major issues for me over here.

I dont think that should result in problems to the monitor itself. But i do believe that can be problems with your eyes after a long time.

Still waiting for someone who can solve this.

Cheers.

well i sent an email to samsung and they said that the only way to solve this is with new monitor drivers but the guy that answered me said that they would only focus on new drivers when w7 was released...
So the same may apply to everyone with this problem

Ask if there's any beta testing for new drivers. That's the only thing I can think of.

Windows 7 Hz fix

Hey all I had the exact same problem until today
My 20" Widescreen LCD's (ViewSonic) True resolution is 1680 by 1050; I have a GeForce 9800GTX+. In the nvidia control panel I set to true res, there were two options for the refresh rate (59 and 60Hz) when I chose 60Hz it just set it back to 59...This pissed me off so much as I would have to set my res to a lower level so that when I watched videos the image wouldn't freeze.

I just got the new nvidia 186.18 driver... I went to the control panel then under manage custom resolutions I set the true res, set it to 60Hz then went to advanced and under timing standards selected manual, set my desired refresh rate to 60.449 hit test and it worked. Now it says 1680 by 1050 at 60.45Hz (60Hz as reported by OS) And now under Change resolution it only show 60Hz and no stupid 59Hz!!!! My problem solved I hope it works for you guys too. Oh I also selected Force HD Resolutions under the manage custom resolutions too (don't know if that did anything towards it but I'm happy)

Please reply and tell me if it worked for you or not thnx

Hi mysticfabs, are you sure your monitor can handle refresh rates beyond 60hz? Because if not, you can damage it. If yes, well good, but in ATI control panel, its impossible to do that trick, even forcing to it. At least ive tryd and got no lucky

Any company that says that is a company I refuse to do buisness with in the future.

Creative Labs, ATI, and HP are at the top of my list for making that very same statement during past OS migrations.

Shame about samsung though, I like their monitors...

but one question... if you "force" in ccc, even if in windows continues to say 59hz wont it be in 60 ?

LCD Native Resolution, EDID and 59Hz issues
I'm on the trail of what might turn out to be quite a boon for those folks with resolution and refresh rate issues. Seems that Windows caches a copy of the monitor EDID since querying it can be very time consuming at startup each time. There appears to be no "protection" on that stored binary value...

Windows 7 insists on resetting my T260 to 59hz
Ok, I tried to help a few others on here - now it's my turn. Done the web searches about Win 7 resetting my Samsung T260 monitor on startup to 59hz (from proper setting of 60hz) which annoyingly reduces text size. Can't find an answer! Appears many others suffer from this 59HZ 'bug'. This...

Refresh rate won't go above 59hz
I have a 8800 GTS running with an HP LP2275w monitor. I just installed win7 and for some reason it won't let the refresh rate go above 59hz. My monitor is capable of running 60hz. This may not seem like a big deal to some, but I actually find it quite disorienting. When I change the video settings...
