Windows 7: Force DVI/HDMI resolutions and refresh rates

I know your going to tell me to go back and read again but I did about 10 times already this doesn't work for me. I have tried everything for the last past day having windows 7 64bit installed. I read about 100 forums on how to change the refresh rate, but in my case my monitor is so old(Viewsonic ultrabrite A90f+) that it doesnt show up in phoenix to edit it. I even tried running admin reforce 100hz for still no luck . Looked at every single tutorial related to this problem still nothing. There has to be something else missing. HELP I'm losing my mind lol :[ http://www.viewsonic.com.ph/support/...ries/a90fplus/

I have dell p1130 21' (gtx 280) and I had tried reach 100hz on 1280x1024. Few minutes ago I removed 4th pin from DVI-VGA connector like here:

Now I can uncheck "hide modes that this monitor cannot display" and i can choose 100hz, but after this system detect my monitor as "Generic Non-Pnp monitor". I can update driver to "generic pnp" (profile from Phoenix) and sytem detect my monitor as "Display device on: VGA". When I run softMCCS dcc/ci is not supported on both type of drivers. I removed 4th pin really carefully. Anyone have a any idea?

You broke the pin off that enables that function. What did you expect?

I expected that dcc/ci in softMCCS will be supported.

I'm afraid that's an all or nothing proposition. Either let Windows read your display capability or hide it by breaking off a pin. The only middle ground is to override the EDID using my technique. This apparently isn't enough for some folks who are demanding 100MHz refresh rates and other specious requirements.

So why @bobdynlan could force 1xx hz without losing correct information about monitor?

He's not using dcc/ci in softMCCS and probably loaded a monitor INF file.

I have a 22" LCD monitor that supports only up to 60Hz in its native 1680x1050 resolution... The thing is, under windows 7, in the advanced tab of the screen resolution settings, the value show is always set to 59Hz, even if I change it ang go back to check if it stays @ 60Hz, but it doesn't.... I've noticed that in games too, for those games that automatically configure/detect your graphics settings I've noticed that they say 59Hz refresh rate, I then have to change back to 60Hz....

Do I really have to do anything or is this just something minor, bcoz win 7 recognizes the display with its make and reference name (HP w2207) together with the native resolution....
