Windows 7: Force DVI/HDMI resolutions and refresh rates

It worked!

Nice job! Good work! I don't know why MS didn't provide a tool for this. It is a big problem.

I looked around for the INF for my NEC Multiync 4FGe but could not find it.
The standard non PNP driver only allows 60hz at 1024x768.

With this technique I am at 75 hz at 1024x768. Much smoother screen; less headache.

BTW, I like this monitor. 15 inches is plenty. I don't think those LCDs really work
that well. They still struggle with colors. She is almost 15 years old and still
working well.

Hello
I read the thread and tried whatever I could manage to but I still can't solve my problem.
I have a samsung 1100mb as my secondary display.
It used to run at 85hz.
But since I was having problems with the hd-5850 card I updated it's drivers.
Since the driver update, the screen is stuck at 60hz, which is really annoying.
When i unplug the first screen, it shows at non plug and play screen and I can't get any information from EDID.
I will rollback to the before driver update as the original problem was flickering screen, it's definitely better than 60hz

I found the .inf file from the driver downloads for the screen but even after I install it as drivers, windows 7 doesn't really give a damn to the modifications I did to it.
Can anyone help?
Thanks

Edit:
Well I'm not sure how it happened but, I think I accidently installed the lcd's drivers to the crt, which worked out just fine..

Using this timings on powerstrip with xp sp3, it works..



The problem is that I can't get powerstrip to work on win7..
Having similar problems with a ATI 5850 and trying to get my Dell 2209wa to work at 75 hertz. I attempted to follow the original guide, and advanced guide and got out of range errors. I previously was able to use 1680x1050 on a nvidia card with a custom resolution, no dice on my current card. Powerstrip does not support the 5xxx series, and may never support it. Anyone else have luck with adding 75 hertz support to the 2209wa?

You would think with 120 and even 240Hz displays becoming commonplace for TVs that Microsoft would add some support for high refreshes.
Its not lazy to ask that, especially with it being a pain to do the whole trial and error process. If anyone gets 75 hertz support on the 2209wa added, please post it.

Hello

I'm having also this problem of refresh rate.

I have a ATI 5850 with Viewsonic G90b (G90f+) monitor attached to it on windwos 7 - 32-bit.
The monitor is detected as generic non pnp.
I cannot read the EDID with Phoenix nor soft MCCS, it says EDID not found & DDC/Ci not supported.
I've got an *.inf file from the manufacturer for Windows XP, but windows 7 doesn't want to update to that inf because it's old.
How can i get the EDID for my setup?
Edit: i installed the inf file from manufacturer, but this is a no-go.

Thanks a lot!

Edit2: I changed the inf file, as Baarod says.
I have 85 Hz now.
I noticed , in the ATI catalyst drivers 9.11 (latest) that can can shutoff EDID under monitor tab.
Gonna try now if it got there from the inf file , or if it is standard in the driver.

help

Hello, i've got a LG Studioworks 900B crt monitor. I pretty much need someone to hold my hand trying to get 100hz since i'm reading somehwhere here that this guide does not work for crt but i would not like to remove any pins (unless you swear you'r sure which one it is i should remove, providing a picture ) since the cable is connected to the screen permanently. some info:
First of all i'm 100% this screen can handle 100hz easy (worked on xp/vista)
Secondly, i don't think this screen has any drivers, and it's detected as generic bla bla
Thirdly i'm using ATi drivers, and my w7 version is home premium 64bit.
and lastly after a quick google image session i' 99% i have a VGA connector
I would like that when i run cs (i play @ 640x480) it would go to 100hz, it automaticly goes to fullscreen and 640x480 resolution when you start it. Whenever i'm in desktop i would like to have 1280x1024@85hz (which i'm getting now).
Tell me if you need to know more. I'd like to know where i should start. In case you tell me to use the original guide, i'm assuming his saying you should click on the "new" tab at first, and then read only\ modify (which is the deafult tab after clicking new). But i have no idia what to fill on any of the values. Please don't tell me that i should just read the thread i got lost quite quickly

Luwie, if you mean when i click on "Extract registy EDID", i'm not seeing any items to select, and if i just click "extract EDID" without selecting anything it sais invalid EDID. If that was what you meant. If it wasn't please tell me how to know if i can read my EDID.
I have ATI Radeon HD 4650, and when i go control panel -> show applications and printer (My OS is in Finnish, sorry if i'm not translating these correctly) -> Double click on my computer name -> find ATI Radeon HD 4650, press properties and go to driver it sais at driver version : 8.620.0.0.
I don't think i have an INF file for my screen, if i try search and look for all files with the format INF i'm only finding two items (which i'm 100% aren't for the screen, i downloaded them myself following another guide allowing you to get 500hz for your mouse).

Here i have the drivers for you nortpron
I already changed the inf file. You have to update the drivers for your monitor to this .inf file. If you press browse, you can see the file windows searches for.
Maybe you have to rename the .inf to that to get it to work.

After you've done this you should be able to read it with phoenix and change it a bit to your likings.

The original .inf file is also in the zip under LG900B.inf.old.bak

Have fun!

First of all thanks lewie, but i think i still need a tiny bit of help. I went to the original guide and followed steps 14-17, i don't really know if theres anything i need to edit in it if as long as i get 100hz in 640x480. After installing it by disc and locating the file 100% manually and clicking "next" it sais that it found the driver but there was a problem installing it.

MS EDID Override.

This file was not found.
Please help i ctrl+f browsed for MS EDID most of this thread but i didn't find anything.
What should i do / am i doing the right thing in the first place ?
(i tried renaming the file so it wouldn't have spaces)
