this bug has been brought back from the dead in the latest W7 build (7077). at least with Windows 7's official nvidia driver: 181.71.

gonna try the latest Vista drivers to see if it's fixed there.

Same problem, only with an ATi card. Encountered it in Vista, 6956, through 7068. I can "Apply" 60hz in Windows, however bringing back up the settings page, it shows 59hz. So does dxdiag.

wonky windows . . .

I have a pair of HP LP2475w monitors and an NEC 20WMGX2 -- all three of them were 60Hz under XP Pro, Vista Home Premium 32-bit and Vista Ultimate 64-bit. And all three revert to 59Hz under both of the Win7 versions I've tried -- 7000 x64 and 7068 x64 -- regardless of the driver installed (packaged with Win7 or from video card mfgr website), the monitor profile (again, pkgd w/ W7 or f/ mfgr), or where I attempt to force the settings. Three different computers (P965/Q6600, P45/Q9650 & X58/i7-920), three different video cards (ATI 3650, 4650, 4850). Something's wonky with windows.

ok I think Ive found the fix for this issue. Like you guys mine was reading 59hz after installing 7077.

What you need to do is:

1. right click on desktop and select screen resolution,
2. On the screen that appears, select advanced settings (if you have more than one monitor you will need to use the monitor selector at the top and then advanced settings for each monitor),
3. select the adapter tab and click list all modes and then select a mode with 60hz (again you'l need to do this for each monitor),
4. Go to the monitor tab, and choose 60hz and then apply and ok.

hopefully this should fix the problem. It is preferable that you have proper drivers for your monitor rather than the generic drivers.

The problem is not selecting 60Hz, the problem is that once you have set it, go back and have another look and you will see that it has revered to 59Hz again, the only time I've had it stick was when I used the Windows 7 driver from Nvidia.

Have you tried the "Manage Custom Resolutions" tab in nVidia Control Panel?

That's how I got it to stick on mine.

I don't have a Nvidia control panel to try it with.Windows 7 installed the drivers for me but i didn't get a control panel with it.

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...
