My graphic card is a sapphire 4890...
now i can normally set 60hz : D
See if it solves to you too ^^
That's a little extreme? I'd have to buy an HDMI cable and adapter, that isn't going to be free. I wish I could use PowerStrip to force 60Hz but it resets to 59Hz when I reboot...

I actually have an HDMI cable sitting here, but I've no adapter to connect it to my graphics card. To be honest, I'd rather keep forcing 60Hz in PowerStrip everytime I boot than spend money on an adapter.

well move your tower a little just to see if it works... and see if you have any other hdmi cable bigger than that one being used that you can trade ...
Its up to you now to imagine solutions
I hope you can fix it : )

I'm not going through all that hassle for 1 game (PES2010). My Tower is right next to my monitor but because my desk is high, slightly further back and my tower is on the floor, it will not reach. I only have one HDMI cable which is too short.

Thanks for the suggestion but even if it does work, what will that achieve? I am not prepared to pay for a new HDMI cable just for 1 game.

Just a reminder for those of you that might have missed it. There was a work around for this issue posted earlier in the thread. Post #224 by jimmy1988.

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
If you have not tried it, it may be worth a shot. It is not guaranteed to work for everyone but it has for many. I tried it myself and it worke for me, even though right now I currently just leave mine at 59hz as it does not bother me too much anymore.

I am still running the build 7100. I was under the impression this issue would have been fixed for the current retail version. It would be nice to hear if the people with the retail version are not experiencing it.

I have a simple question...why does this giving folks such consternation? Both my laptop and desktop are running at 59 Mhz instead of 60 and I don't even detect any problem whatsoever. So why are people so wrapped up in this 59 thing?

Some games you get tearing if you run at 59Hz because v-sync will not be enabled at 59Hz. An example of this is Pro Evolution Soccer 2010. At 59Hz, the v-sync option is disabled but at 60Hz it's enabled.

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...
