Ditto and it worked for me.

Try to uncheck in CCC - Detect whenever CCC is opened - in Display Detection Option, and the 60hz is now locked in Windows 7 display options.
Otherwise just try to mess around til you get the 60hz in W7 display options.

well I have a a friend using NVDIA Quadro fx. and he seems to have the same 59 Hz. Is this some normal issues with Nvdia? I'm using Ati and it works fine always 60Hz

this is a persistent problem and for some resin three seems to be notable eye strain caused by the fractional refresh rate as displayed by various different applications.

However I have a EPIC problem.
on the Sony VAIO AW series lap tops nvidia 9600m gt cards are used. Only sony drivers can be used with these cards and Sony has not updated the Nvidia drivers for over 2 years. The Sony drivers are crippled and there is no custom resolution button.

I used the recommended manual method to override the display EDID and created a new driver however I am too unfamiliar to get the default driver to be 60.0001 kz. I seem to be able to change all the other "options" but getting the default or changing the native resolution in Phenix in block one detailed timings has not happened. It is really difficult for me to know what to change to get the refresh rate up based on the input on this tab ( Pixel Clk 149.53, H active Pxl 1920, H blank2 80, H sync offset80, h sync width 60, H image size 409, H border 0, V active Lines1080, V blank54, V sync Offset4, V Sync width10 V image Size 230 V border 0 )

I have a full 1080p 16:9 display that supposedly supports the Adobe RGB.

Once more I have 2 lap tops with this problem Vaio VGN AW 190 and a AW 160J both with the 1080p screens and both with piano black and raid. Installed win7 64 on both machines having the same problem on both. It also seems to be causing serious eye strain so much so that it hurts my eyes to look at the computer for more than 5 min. wich is not a problem with my ACER also running 64 bit windows 7. except with a navidia 9100m G with current drivers and obviously a different display

Any help would be appreciated

Well, it really didn't make a difference for me in any tangible way, but I fixed it for my GTS 450 by making and using a custom resolution setting of 1920 x 1200 @ 60Hz in the Nvidia control panel for my for my NEC 2490WuXi.

Hoestly this "59 hertz" issue has been around since Windows 7 was released. It's nothing new and only shows in Windows, all other apps show 60 hertz.

Please see page one of this post and note the date

Yeah, I noted the date and I am sure everyone else has too. It is a shame it has been around for this long and hasn't been corrected. But I think it doesn't have much effect.

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...
