Windows 7: Missing 60Hz refresh rate when using 1920x1080 screen resolution

Missing 60Hz refresh rate when using 1920x1080 screen resolution


My computer changed the screen resolution by itself for some reason, this is the second time that it does that. I managed to fix it the first time by changing monitor settings/drivers (followed this tutorial: Generic Non pnp Monitor Fix) but I am unable to fix it now.

The screen resolution was 1920x1080 earlier and I got it back to that but the screen is blurry and shaking which is extremely annoying and I already have headache.

I noticed that I miss 60Hz refresh rate and suspect that it could be the issue:

When using 1600x1200 or anything below that, the screen isn't blurry and doesnt shake.

Does someone know how to fix this as I have no idea how to and I can't really have it this way

No clue what video card you`re using (that would help) but start all over, uninstall any video drivers you have, use ccleaner to clean up the mess in the registry, and remove any video folders in program files manually. Download a fresh set of drivers and install them, problem solved. :)
