Well I find it odd that when I tried it in XP it was working, then in W7 it isn't even though I tried the same driver release. I suppose it is possible that the driver is presenting certain compatibility issues within the W7 environment but not in XP. I hope you are right, because I think nVidia would fix it sooner than Microsoft, especially if ATI has already taken care of it.

Can everyone with an nVidia graphics card who is experiencing this problem please post a bug report here: https://surveys.nvidia.com/index.jsp...70e8d4356ba631

The more reports they get the more likely they are to fix this asap. Even if it's something Microsoft has to fix, if nVidia know about it they'll probably push Microsoft to fix it.

Cheers.

Thanks - done . . . this is what i wrote:

1. Turn on the computer;
2. Open nVidia Control Panel and navigate to Change Resolution link;
3. Default Refresh rate appears as 59hz, change it to 60hz and click Apply. Screen will flicker indicating refresh rate change.
4. "Apply Changes" dialogue box requests confirmation to keep these settings, click on "Yes";
5. Within a second or two, refresh rate reverts back to 59hz (inside the drop-down selection box) but screen does not flicker to indicate the screen reverting back to 59hz.

I have no problem getting it to set to 60hz in Vista. It's just Win 7 that does this.

I've seen this occur with all sorts of monitors on various Windows versions, not just Win 7 and not just Nvidia.
I tried to set it to 60hz a couple of times then gave up with the view it was not worth worrying about.
It has never caused me any problems.

I cannot see it being an OS problem seeing has I do not have the problem. However, I'm using older Vista drivers from Dell, ATI doesn't not support mobile editions. Might be a combination OS and graphic drivers.

Code:
Driver Packaging Version            8.36-070314a3-045540C-Dell
2D Driver Version                   7.01.01.622
Direct3D Version                    7.14.10.0489
OpenGL Version                      6.14.10.6465
Catalyst® Control Center Version    2007.0322.2238.38535

Have you all already tried this to force the refresh rate to stay?

Force DVI/HDMI resolutions and refresh rates

Hope this helps,

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...
