Windows 7: 59Hz

12 Jan 2009   #21


Hmm nothing corresponds to 59, and since it does it regardless of whether you're using the tweak or not it really doesn't matter.

Honestly, I am stuck....

Windows 7 64bit Beta

Yeah, me too! Hopefully some more people will come around with this problem and maybe we can figure out what the common theme seems to be. Thanks for trying to help.

After all this is a Beta OS it will probably end up being fixed in the end.. honestly I can't even tell a difference between 59Hz and 60Hz, but it just bugs me, Win 7 is looking great so far this is the biggest issue I've ran into.. all my games work great, better than they did in Vista. :)

Windows 7 Beta x64

sadly i have the same problem.

I'll try to do those fixes that John suggested though and then I'll report back.

I'm even considering reinstall windows 7.

I've asked in other forum people with the same hardware as me (vga and monitor) if they had the problem and they said no... with the WHQL drivers.

Windows 7 Ultimate Vista Ultimate x64

I have the same problem on both 32bit and 64bit but I think I can live with it, I mean it's 1Hz, hardly a major issue IMO.

Windows 7 Build 7100 32-bit, Windows Vista 32-bit

I'm having the exact same thing (different video card, though). I don't really care about the 1Hz, but it is quite odd...

El Capitan / Windows 10

Seems like a HD issue as NTSC isn't actually 60i, it is 59.94 so maybe they're not rounding up?

Windows 7 Beta x64

I've used a tool named DirectRefresh and it worked, it now locks on 60hz.

I can't tell no difference but I'm happier now

Windows 7 64bit Beta

Thanks for the workaround NuNeX! I'll try it when I get home.

Can the rest of you with the same problem please list your Video Card, Connection Type and Monitor so we can figure out what might be causing the problem?

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...

59hz and 60hz? Are They Obviously Different?
That's the screen refresh rates on Windows 7. What's the reason they included those two...when they are that close to each other?

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...
