Windows 7: Refresh rate is stuck on 30Hz when i try set it to 1080

Refresh rate is stuck on 30Hz when i try set it to 1080

Hi,

Recently i bought a new monitor (samsung p2250) which neither vista/win7 allowed me to set the resolution to 1080p.

The resolutions already exist when i open Nvidia control panel, but windows doesn't allow me to use it. My refresh rate is stuck on 30Hz when i try set it to 1080p through the normal "screen resolution" option. I followed your method in vista and it works perfectly (thanks!) but when i try the same thing in windows 7, it says the resolution already exists and doesn't allow me to create the custom resolution.

Any idea whats going on? is it a software or hardware problem?

Hello Anon, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if installing your monitors drivers may be able to help allow you to select the refresh rate afterwards. I found these at Samsung. Not sure what the difference is with LCD and Premium, but they are the same driver though. Click on the Driver option to see them under the Downloads tab.

LCD P2250:
Support for P2250 SAMSUNG

Premium P2250:

Still the same problem though.. win7 being stubborn about the refresh rate stuck at 30Hz

Anon,

I must admit that I'm stomped as well, so I moved our posts here so that you may be able to get more help with this.
