I noticed it said 59hz. I may just have a sharp eye but to me it looked slightly "watered". Went to change it to 1920x1080 HD 60 hz and the highest it went was 59.

I said eff it and chose SD 1920x1080 HD 60hz. It took the setting and asked did I want to keep it. After saying yes it reverted back to the 59hz mode. I was like wtf. I didnt want unsintall drivers clean as nothing is technically "broken". Ill do a clean install when the next nvidia driver is released because I dont prefer custom modes.

Found this article.Followed instructions I had to manually add the 1 in the 60.0001.It still sets that back to 60.0000 but so far it looks like it used to so Ill take it. I have no clue as to what caused this cause I know for a fact it was on 60. I did notice that my HDCP status is now unlocked and it wasnt before, maybe if I can re-lock it, it would "fix" it. For now ill try this.

**EDIT....Dxdiag reports the monitor is running at 59 hz
it's a known issue in Windows 7, microsoft have acknowledged the fault and explained the cause and no action is needed as it's supposed to do that apparently Screen refresh rate in Windows 7 does not apply the user selected settings on monitors & TVs (that report specific TV compatible timings)

The original instructions just say to create a custom resolution and then go straight to manual timing. This failed for me when I tried to put 60.001 "Test" went grey. What I did then was change the top number from 59 to 60. After that it let me use 60.001 in manual timing:
all i did was go to nvidia control panel by right clicking and were it says 3d setings click on adjust image with preview. then click on let the 3d application decide and presto hope iy works for u! it worked for me and i have both silent hunter 3 and 4. and im running windows 7 ultimate 32 bit. good luck

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...

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...
