People please realize that 59 and 60 are (statistically speaking) insignificantly different. Quit wasting your time!

ok, I don't see any difference in image at all. my only concern is about my monitor not working in its recommended settings and if it could affect it.

I disagree. The specifications are not "60Hz and only 60 Hz, b/c 59 or 61 will kill you in 3.45 milliseconds" - the specs are set to ~60Hz, with a standard deviation associated (I am not sure what those are, as those are rarely published, but a 'usual' standard deviation is + or - 3% - and that is equal to + or - 1.8Hz - which means that 58.2 - 61.8 is *acceptable*. Hence my use of the phrase

It defaults back to 59 on any reboot.

It is simply not worth the time to figure out why - as I have mentioned in the post earlier, Win7 is assigning the value based upon the reading it gets from the EIDE from the monitor itself, which any monitor that has DVI will be passing along to the computer (and thus the OS). If this is what Win7 wants, let it use it.

Thanks for the reassurance. and yeah, this thing is very difficult (if not impossible) to fix with current drivers. I've tried everything and it goes back to 59Hz. well, might be a good time to give up the fight.

I'm done messing with it.If it isn't affecting me at the moment i suppose there's no need to worry about it.

You could probably edit the display mode data in the monitor's and video card's drivers; however, you could possibly end up replacing cosmetic annoyance with physical damage should you bungle the changes. I've just decided that my monitors are vain: they are forever 59 and will never turn 60 (much like Jack Benny, who, for you spring chickens, was perpetually 39).

I have also got the same problem!

When running at 1680X1050, it locks to 59Hz and the screen shivers and shakes all over the place!
There are also lines across the screen which sometime get so bad you cannot even read what is there...

In order to get 60Hz to work, I have to drop my resolution to 1440X900, then the 59Hz option disappears and leaves only the 60Hz option.
The screen is now perfect, with no corruption at all...

I have an HP w2207 running off 2 XFX 8800GTS 512Mb cards in SLi.
All the latest drivers are installed for both devices.
I am currently testing it with the latest windows 7 build 7100.

So, the problem is still there!

When is this going to be sorted out?
I have tried evey possible solution listed here, but nothing seams to work?!?!?!

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...
