Windows 7: Issue with Hz screen settings on Nvidia drivers

Issue with Hz screen settings on Nvidia drivers

Untill today, I can't set my old Siemens CRT screen MCM 2110 MTD to 100Hz - 32bit - 1024/768 (can run 120Hz with WinXPpro!)
I run Win7 on an old mobo Epox 8RDA3+ with Nvidia 7600GT GoldenSample agp, have tried WDDM1.0, WDDM1.1, 181.22, 182.05 Nvidia Drivers, and only WDDM1.0 works (with poor performances).

Mind that the day I installed Seven, everything was running fine and as usual like with WinXPpro (100Hz - 32bit - 1024/768), but after a few updates, my sceen became to flikker and set back to 70Hz. If i try to set 100Hz, i only get 16bit colors.

From now, as I have tried several drivers, i think it is only Nvidia ro Microsoft relevant, and not the screen driver as i mannaged to re-create a working Siemens .inf file with moninfo.exe http://www.download3k.com/DownloadLi...t-Manager.html

Why are you trying to set it at such high frequency Hz?
There is no need to set it so high?

So high freq? 100Hz isn't so high for a CRT.
And I prefer 100Hz for my visual-and-eyes comfort. It's just awfull and
tiring working with less freq.

Any way, it's strange that the first day Seven was installed 100Hz was available, but not anymore!

The main problem with CRT's is the radiation not the frequency.

OK. If i'm right, the higher the refresh rate, the less tiring for the eyes?!
Anyway, this is not the problem.
I'd like to find why i can't set 100Hz anymore, and why my screen is flikkering.
Why no other drivers than WDDM1.0 don't work (even WDDM1.1)?

So does anyone has an idea on how to reduce the flickering effect?

If u use Riva Tuner, you can use its built in refresh rate overrider. Or try a proggy called "RefreshForce" found here: RefreshForce Home Page

Hope this helps!

CRTs rule FTW!!!!

No change, can't have more than 70Hz even with your proggy.
Seven is more n more boring me.
Bad graphics, verry bad sound, audiodg.exe...

your CRT might be kicking the can!

Mine did that when I put it on 75hz, used to SCREAM bloody murder (really high pitched noise), even warbled when I shook it, kind of weird. After a day of that it wouldn't stick in 75hz mode, only 70.

I remember windows XP used to let me set it up to 120hz, even though I know it was not capable of it... so it might actually only be able to do 70hz.
