Cheers to all.

Totally agree with MorbidGod I guess he said that in the thread best interest Im getting problem in 2 games, but problem is how to being sure those problem are because of the refresh rate in Call of juarez when are changes from cinematics to game sometimes gets stuck and the monitor says when the PC restarts: adjusting resolution in Dirt some graphics looks bad, but just the ones from the menu and sometimes a black line when playing. Again i have a new monitor, new video card, new games and new OS, so how to tell who is doing the job... hard to say

Exact same issue here on 2 seperate monitors:

Asus vw222s 1680 x 1050
LG W2353V 1980 x 1080

Have tried both of my systems - 1 has a 4870 and 1 has a 4890 so it doesnt look like an nvidia thing.

Running windows 7 rc1 7100 64bit

Happens on both 9.6 and 9.7 with or without monitor driver installed. Weird.

Doesnt seem to affect gameplay or videos though, luckily, just a bug thats probably fixed by now in the retail version.

Edit: havent tried 9.8 yet, didnt see above post, doh.

Refresh rate are more likely to affect CRT monitors not LCDs as LCDs have no refresh rate.

Agreed but it still begs the question, why does Win 7 do this 59hz vs 60hz thing when Vista doesn't. There are dozens of discussions all over the web about it and as far as I can see, no-one has a real answer for it.

The last forceware was OK then back to square one again with the latest. I think it's a combination of Win7 and Nvidia forceware issues.

On a separate forum I'm having a big discussion re: Nvidia forceware issues whereby my GTX295's GPU1 throttles back for a rest periodically (as it should) but GPU2 never does, and we've decided that's due to the forceware.

This is a bug that's guaranteed to be fixed by Microsoft (as clearly it is an OS bug). Some claim that it's only 1hz - but we're not talking about mathematical variances here, we're talking about something important for all gamers and HTPC users. An out of sync refresh rate DOES create problems and it is completely noticeable when application settings have to match system settings. The reason I know there is a bug, btw, is because when I boot up my system, and change the refresh rate from 59hz to 60hz, my monitor actually goes blank for a second which indicates to me that it's really switching refresh rates, but when the setting reverts back to 59hz, the screen doesn't "flicker" indicating that it's really reverted back to 59hz. I am using the most up to date nForce drivers (190.62). I've tried all the suggestions given on here and on other sites, but nothing at all has worked.

I hate posting twice in a row - but I have to add to this... From a technological perspective you are correct, LCD monitors do not "refresh" in the conventional sense, but proper, correlated refresh rate settings are equally important when using LCDs and CRTs! Especially for gaming and most HTPC setups, where v-sync is enabled, because at that point the gpu and the monitor have to be synced, and this is why 1hz variance does matter. I can tell you from first hand experience that this is a problem - and it needs to be fixed.

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...
