    Hi all. I am new to the forums. I am having an issue with the latest 7 RC build. It keeps reverting back to 59hz after i manually set it to 60hz in both the monitor settings and Nvidia control panel. I am using a 9800gtx with latest Nvidia driver for my 64bit Windows 7 RC install. Any help would be much appreciated.

    59Hz 60Hz - Nvidia Solution

    HI ALL,

    THIS IS A SOLUTION FOR NVIDIA CARDS, AND IT WORKS GREAT.

    After frustrating countless hours, I found a fix that works like a charmmmm.

    - Go to Nvidia Control Panel
    - Go to Add resolution
    - Create Custom Resolution
    - Click on Timing
    - Click on Manual
    - Set refresh rate to 60.001 Hz
    - Press Apply, and Have funnnn

    I don't know about you, but when I found this problem out I reported it to NVIDIA. Thanks for the tip though.

    It's a windows 7 issue. Nvidia are not the culprit, however, Nvidia offers a fix as described above so all heil.

    Hope it works for the majority as its working great for me.

    Agreed. I just thought I would send the info to one or the other.
