I am also seeing this on my box, upon a fresh install BEFORE installing the beta NV drivers. Sure can't tell if it has much effect, unless it HELPS, because my video performance is better under 7, especially when viewing my AVCHD home movies in WMP12. Phenomenal!

I've been 39 for more years than I care to admit, publicly anyway.

Yes. This will help you. You'll need to modify your monitor timings or use a VESA standard timing. Post back here if you need help.

Thanks, I'll give it a try tonight!

Sounds all very complicated though!

Will this issue be resolved in future releases?

Perhaps future releases of your DISPLAY. That's where the issue comes from. The EDID in your monitor is asking for 59Hz and Windows is giving it what it asked for. This method is a bit complicated because we're compensating for your hardware manufacturer's lack of foresight.

If it's my monitor asking for 59hz, how come everything is 60hz in all my other boots - XP and Vista?

I think it's a a glitch in Windows 7 itself.

Windows 7 uses the exact NTSC timing: (Hz*1000)/1001 so what used to be 60Hz comes out as 59.94 and VESA GTF rules explicitly state that you ROUND DOWN if your application handles only integer values. That being said, we ARE just compensating for this by adding a fudge factor to the timing to get it to round out to 60 again and it will have no effect on performance.

Well in that case why are we even discussing the issue, as it really is a non-issue, if I read you correctly?

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...
