**Windows 7 59hz (60hz) workaround** FIX IN HERE!

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
welp until either all gpu drivers fix this or until Microsoft does, here is your chance to get 60hz on some resolutions. Some people may ask why do you even care? It's only 1hz for crying out loud! Well, for me 59hz causes massive stuttering effects that 60hz does not.

However this solution isn't for everyone as I've only been able to reproduce it on my systems. A couple things to note:

1. You must be stuck @ 59hz
2. If this works for you, you will need to apply it every reboot (which does suck)
3. It's rather easy to do w/o any 3rd party programs required

Lets get to it!

1. access your screen resolution settings by right clicking the desktop and selecting it as seen here. (You may also use control panel too if you want)



2. Now with access to screen settings you must extend out your desktop. Something similar should appear on your screen



3. Now go to the bottom drop down box and select duplicate these displays. And again for the guys who need pictures it must look like this.



4. Apply the settings on screen. Click OK to keep those settings.

5. Now, go to the same drop down box that you duplicated those settings and select Only show that display on monitor 1. Once again, as seen here.



6. Hit Apply to change and OK to keep the settings.


7. Now you should be at a suitable resolution and from here you want to make sure your workaround worked. Click advanced settings, then the monitor tab in the new box that appears and you should see 60hz defaulted as so.



60hz bliss! Only draw back is that you must do this after every reboot, but its better in my case as there is no more scan stuttering that's happening.

If someone already posted this, make your post more visible b/c I searched.

A quick search in google brings up massive results on this topic. I would hope they are aware!

well Windows 7 is still at testing stages, so you can't expect it to work without any problems, or not have to work around things

and i bet they are aware, most of these issues will be corrected before the product goes into retail stores, then they can start finding bugs from the mass user base, and we will have a service pack in no time

you can't find all these bugs on your own, no matter how much you work on it, they start showing up when more users are using the product, and then they can work on fixing it

thats why Microsoft products are not 100% up to scratch when released

for me i am going to stick to Vista Ultimate x64 SP2 for awhile

but i might install the RC since i downloaded it and test it for fun

I think that only appears when you have connected a secondary display?

Hopefully more a permanent solution untill Win7 is released:
The only way i can get my refresh rate to stick at 60Hz is by selecting the option "reduce DVI frequency on high-resolution displays" via the ccc DVI settings. Upon reboot the only available refresh rate is 60Hz and DXDIAG confirms this!
Res 1920 * 1200 @ 60Hz, monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 2443bw,
If there is such an option via the Nvidia control panel give this a go
Hope this helps someone

Huh, never heard of this problem. Just looked at my monitor settings though and they are all at 59Hz, weird.
