Well here's me crowing that I got 60hz to stick and after a reboot it was back to 59hz, however, I can now change it and it stays until the next reboot. I doubt it really makes much difference if the truth were known.
According to Amorphous over at the nVidia forums (Hardware/Geforce) there's a new driver coming out in March which should be OK for Win 7. As I feel it's the driver to blame here I'll wait and see.

windows Seven 32bit RC
 
 

Hi guys,
I have a somehow same problem, but not totally the same.
My problem is my monitir isn't recognized as it should anymore. I mean at the install of Seven, i could find Siemens Nixdorf MCM 2110 MTD monitor (old 21' crt).
But for any reason, now Seven only shows non-PnP monitor. And so, I cannot set it at 100mhz 32bit color but only 70mhz/32 bit.
I thought it was a nVIDIA driver matter, so tried (for 7600GT GoldenSample agp) WDDM 1.1, 180.xx, 181.22, 182.05 but i only can run WDDM 1.0.
I'm now trying to find a driver for my monitor, but it seems it's no way.
Is there according to you any other solution?
That 'd help me so much 'caus having flikering screen every 2/3 minuts is so boring...
Thank you so much for help.

I can confirm that this problem is solved in nVidia's official beta drivers for W7 (181.71). It installs it with 59Hz as default but you can correct it to 60Hz and it will stay put even after rebooting.

Wista!, Need 59hz issue fix on 7.
 
 

Allo, this has been wrecking my head also and im delighted its being looked into. I am currently using an LG 37inch LCD as my main monitor using the DVI-HDMI connector i bought in argos and a HD4870 single card.

My resolution is normally 1920x1080p, yet when i boot Win7 it defaults it to 59 Htz and there is underscan/overscan... whatever. I have to force 60 htz in the display manager of the ATI catalylst utlity and it defaults back on next boot or when i load up Left for dead a couple of times (first load works).

This is what rivatuner reports when i try messing with stuff or trying to create my own monitor driver with minimum 60htz refresh rate... which also didnt work BTW.


It would seem that the cheap HDMI connector is the problem as has been theorised earlier. It is getting the Hardware ID of the Monitor, in this case 37LF75 but the refresh rate (possibly provided by the connector) is the limiting factor. Also, the Maximum Resolution is incorrect. Is the connector corrupting the EDID?

This is an issue that has been around since the 7000 build but it is finally working in build 7057, but only when using the latest Windows 7 drivers from Nvidia, I tried with the latest Vista driver but still could not get 60Hz

You no longer have to use vista drivers or the old version from WU. They have fixed this particular issue with new drivers direct from their website. So go to nvidia.com and download the win 7 drivers there.

Yes that's what I was saying in the previous post, if you want 60Hz get the latest Windows 7 driver from Nvidia.

I'm on the trail of what might turn out to be quite a boon for those folks with resolution and refresh rate issues.
