Windows 7: Nvidia drivers capping hz @ 85 hz?

Nvidia drivers capping hz @ 85 hz?

I've been trying to get my 19" samsung CRT monitor to reach 100hz with windows7, but it seems to be impossible.

I can't find a driver that works for the monitor online, so I made one with RivaTuner, however I can't reach 100hz in resolutions that I know are supposed to get there.

Is this a Nvidia driver issue?

I currently have the latest official one from the Nvidia page.

Your monitor works best at 1920x1440 @ 64 Hz, it's maximum resolution/refresh rate.

uhh, Yeah but I'm trying to run CS1.6 in 800x600 resolution @ 100hz, and somehow thats impossible, whilst I could do that in winxp.

Also.. No Nvidia driver install has to date finished correctly for me, it always hangs on some part of the install.

Install using device manager method then.

Yeah, But the issue is still at hand. Its like theres a global cap on refresh rates at 85hz across the board, except for the highest resolutions then it drops a down bit.

If I force CS to try to run in 100hz, it starts in window mode, only filling a portion of my screen.

I've sent nvidia customer support a question, I hope they give me some answers tomorrow

Generally it's better to run an LCD monitor at around the 60hz range, because running it at a higher rate does reduce the life span of the monitor.

Yeah I read something about that, some LCD's even lock their rates at 60 I believe. It's ok of they run lower, and don't worry the human eye on average only can see 30fps.

I personally would never run a LCD on 60hz, always the maximum allowed per resolution, but indeed the issue I'm having is on a CRT.
