Interestingly enough, with my setup, I *too* am having the same issue.

But, for me, IDGAF b/c 59 works just fine on my monitors.

My problem is even worse, when i use the win7 "screen resolution" in the right click desktop menu, i CANNOT change the refresh to anything other than 30hz! If i do, it just changes back or doesn't change at all, no matter if i change even the resolution. Installing the Nvidia driver from the update helped, and using DXdiag my display IS at 60hz now.. yet only using 1280x720 because the monitor cannot use 30hz in this mode using NVcp. When in 1920x1080, it automatically reverts to 30hz..

I'm using a 7500LE (OEM) with a 1080p HDTV. Not sure where i would get the actual edid timings from..

From the HDTV. Ask it just like your 7500LE does: EnTech Taiwan | Utilities | Monitor Asset Manager

Free and safe and indispensable for working out these issues with DVI/HDMI. Save the report and post it please. If everyone else did the same we could find the root cause here.

I'm thinking it's a display issue in the Control Panel. In a game my framerate (with vsync on) is 60.0 ... should be OK.

My Viewsonic VX2240W is being forced to 59hz too. I have Geforce 7600GS AGP and 179.23 drivers supplied by Windows Update. It's advertised frequency is 60hz.
The option to use 60hz is there however it wont keep that setting.

When I boot into Vista I see that the 60hz option is the one selected. Same card, driver 178.24. Must be an nVidia issue.

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...
