Well, if you (both) have red my previous posts, you would know that in Vista and Xp this problem was solved after the beta-state ended, so i never had this (im saying "i" but i know a ton of people stuck with this), and im not seeing why should i change this screen.

@swarfega: Youve red that stuff ( 59.94hz. still means nothing, its not stated 60hz like it was previously) in this very thread, you need to defrag your memory, m8

I now remember this issue didnt occour to me on the first W7 betas ive tryed (7100, i guess). Maybe faulty drivers..

59.94 was me. Again. Please folks, it's all your monitor's fault. Contact their tech support OR create an override INF per my instructions. For more info on WHY 59.94 (or 60/1.001 exactly) see NTSC - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

well i have a question, does the 59hz make it look funny? act weird? bad screen margins? cause if not, and i don't want to sound rude cause it's actually a really good way to run computer things from what I've learned.... if it's not broke, and it works fine, don't fix it lol just be glad it's working but if any of the questions have an answer, such as it's acting up in a way that's hindering your screen < eyes then fix it =( try getting a refresh rate over ride tool. nvidia can do that I think, just do a fixed rate or a custom.

Again, ive said in previous posts that this did NOT happen somewhile ago back in 7100 W7 or any Vista/XP build. I know about 60 being the 59.94 (and i overrided the HP inf too, as many people did it with no luck), but if so, why doesnt the monitor proprieties state 60hz like it did before?

Ps: I wouldnt aprove about people advising to change screens, someone can actualy do it without nowing the mistake....

The only way i can get my refresh rate to stick at 60Hz is by selecting the option "reduce DVI frequency on high-resolution displays" via the ccc DVI settings. Upon reboot the only available refresh rate is 60Hz and DXDIAG confirms this!
Res 1920 * 1200 @ 60Hz, monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 2443bw,
If there is such an option via the Nvidia control panel give this a go
Hope this helps someone

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...

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...
