    On the same page= the 6800GT tab in your\our case.
    Whats wrong with 75hz. If theres a problem it would be defaulting to 60hz.
    You got vsync on or off...?

    ooops,,,,you're using 71.24,,,,sorry no refresh overide page..sorry. But it still should work. That refreshrate bugs been squashed for some time now....

    I have tried various ways, but I guess editing the "modes.txt" file in the driver's package is the only thing.
    I don't know why NVIDIA chose to change the nice way of forcing refresh rates through driver. That's like going one step forward and two back.
    And 71.24 is not the first driver that has this new way of dealing with refresh rates 70.41 was the same in that regard. *sigh*

    Try this, and save it as Refresh.reg or something, and it will restore the refresh force page in the 7x.xx drivers.

    REGEDIT4
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\NVTweak]
    "CoolBits"=dword:ffffffff
    "NvCplDisableRefreshRatePage"=dword:00000000

    Thank you, pimp_gimp.

    I also found a nice little proggie, that let's you enable several hidden driver panels from 55.xx to 71.xx drivers - NVTWEAK
    ( http://nvtweak.L_A_P_T_O_P-V_I_D_E_O_2_G_O.com/ ).

    Just disregard the "_"'s and the "-"'s and you'll find it. ;)





    P.S.: You, moderatorrs should really moderate your banning. *sigh*

    No Problem, mate, the same question came up in another thread so I just searched for it, and dug up the registry entry for restoring override refresh rates.
