Windows 7: 59Hz

As you mentioned above, I have exactly the same problem...
Select 60, just reverts back to 59! REALLY IRRITATING!!!

I suppose we will just have to get used to it until Win 7 eventually takes over from XP (I recon a year or 2!) then, only then will this problem eventually be resolved with service pack 4 or something!

BUT, I have run into 2 other problems which I think are sort of related here, and I hope other might be experiencing it too....

Firstly, the aspect ratio thing...
I usually set the nVidia aspect ratio to "use NVIDIA scaling with fixed-aspect ratio". If I run something with a 4:3 ratio, the screen should display it as that and not stretch it.
Now, when I select this, and hit apply, it confirms the change, then just reverts back to using the monitors built in scaling?!?!?! WTF?????

Secondly, When I play games, watch a movie or basically do anything in full screen and something that is very bright comes on, the monitor blanks out for a few seconds. For example, with the new game Castle Wolfenstien. When this was released, I rushed out and bought (waiting for ages for it! Awesome game!). Now, when ever there is an explosion or something bright on the screen, and you are looking in that direction, the screen will blank out!
This is VERY irritating....

From what I have sort of worked out is that it might have something to, possibly, with DirectX and the drivers, but I am not sure...

Anybody else having this problem?

P.S. Sorry for trying to change the subject here, but these could be related somehow?!?!
Weird - sounds like a dynamic contrast setting, or something like that. Which card do you have? What is the make/model of your monitor? Plz give more info on your rig. Thanks!

HI ALL,

THIS IS A SOLUTION FOR NVIDIA CARDS, AND IT WORKS GREAT.

After frustrating countless hours, I found a fix that works like a charmmmm.

- Go to Nvidia Control Panel
- Go to Add resolution
- Create Custom Resolution
- Click on Timing
- Click on Manual
- Set refresh rate to 60.001 Hz
- Press Apply, and Have funnnn

Nope, doesn't work for me!

Tell me that 60,001 is out of range!

Can only set between 58,000 and 60,000?!?!?

Doesn't work for me either.

Same problem as Deanos.
If I type in 60.001 the apply box is greyed out.
Nvidia control panel states range is 58.000 to 60.000.

59hz was preventing my HDTV from working with VGA at 1920x1080. RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting fixed it. Virustotal says not a virus, and I grabbed it from this topic.

It worked for me after a lot of fiddling, thanks very much. I can't believe that this would work after all the attempts I'd already made. There must be something magic about that .001...!

It's a but fiddley getting it to take expecially if one already has custom resolutions. Best to delete any that are close or equivalent and to change the actual resolution temporarily to something less. Then the new custom resolution takes like a dream.

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...
