Windows 7: Issue with Hz screen settings on Nvidia drivers

28 Feb 2009   #11
Dragor1

Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) dual boot with Fedora KDE
 
 

Did you try Riva Tuner?

RivaTuner

It has a built in Refresh rate overrider, but for it to work, it must remain in system tray and also in start-up.

I have a peculiar problem with Vista and 7, where both the OS give me an option of setting my 15" CRT at 1024 x 768 @ 70 Hz but if I try that, the monitor goes "Out of Sync."

So, I used Riva Tuner's built in Refresh Rate Overrider to create a rule which always sets 60 Hz for 1024 x 768.

Post back if you feel its confusing. I'll explain how to do it.

Hope this helps and Thank you for your time!

so now i tried in the DeviceManager to select the Graphics Card and then click right (update Driver software), then Windows reinstalled the WDDM drivers without NVidia Control Panel , then i can select all Refresh rates under Windows Settings. 85 Hz no problem.

I've just asked Gainward about old graphic cards (7600 serie) and Seven. I asked the tech support about a new bios or about any tips for the resolution. Here is the reply of the TechSupport:

Hi JF,
i know about the problems with older cards and newer drivers,this is especially a problem with windows 7.

The 7 series is since 2 years end of life.
I don’t have any newer bios version.

The newest drivers are designed for the latest graphic cards and games.
Wow, thanks Gainward, thx nVIDIA, thx Seven...

Well, you have to remember that you're trying to run older technology on the newest BETA OS out there...

As the support guy said, your card is 2 years out of it's support life, they don't support them forever although I know allot of people would expect them too, but technology advances and they can't afford to dwell on older cards too long.

You're using an old CRT, an old MB, and a semi-old graphics card, and you're expecting optimal performance from a beta OS? Kinda unrealistic IMO
But blame Win7 anyway, it must be their fault

All sarcasm aside, the OP needs to realize that because newer OSs don't support older hardware it is *not* the OSs fault, but the hardware's fault.

Just because you *could* do it doesn't make it right - case in point - You used to have unbridled access to every system and device on XP - and *any* scan of a security site will show you just how much of a disaster that is in terms of allowing malware that same unbridled access.

So, if you haven't found an answer and the manufacturer cannot help you, I'd say that your hardware is simply not compatible and that is the end of it.

I know that well. Old mobo, old graphic, old CPU... I'd wait if I was sure that my computer can run Seven or not.

Do you reallise? That means you have to buy a new computer every 3 years if you wanna have new OS!
I don't want highest results, I just want my computer to work flawlessly.
And yes, i blame hardware manufacturer for that. It's just too easy matter to forget materiel older than 2 years.

Thanks, not my best work, but it does the job

Seriously though, have tried using older/XP driver versions installed with compatibility mode. Installed your monitors .inf file if it has one?
