but in theory i have the RTM or Gold version
and i have the same issue as everybody
i have an ATI card with the latest drivers and no luck
solutions are very welcome

Well, i didnt had time to format to the final build yet, but i´ve seen it happening on other machines with build 7600 inside. Im still crossing my finguers, because none of theese machines had an HD 4890 inside like mine has. Also, i have very low expectations about this.

I have a nvidia gtx260 and also get 59Hz. Actually it's more like 59.9x. I've had this happen with ATI cards also. I have a 60hz option but whenever I select it it always resets to 59.

As far as I can tell it affects nothing.

Happens to a lot of people, if you scroll through the thread. And yes, results in serious artifacts and/or other problems aswell.

Yes, but none of that problems seems to be related with refresh rate, my friend. Artifacting yes, with pixels not being refreshed properly. But stucks and strange colours, thats due to other problems.

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...
