    For those of you trying to get your crt monitors above the windows 7 85 hz ceiling, follow the link below. I believe the link also provides a fix for lcd screens.

    I think many people are under the impression that there is something wrong with their windows 7 video card drivers, but this is not the case.

    I now have my FW-900 running all the refresh rates that I enjoyed with XP.

    Really? If it works you're my hero for this week.

    I've been trying to get my G500 to run 95Hz for a while...

    EDIT: I thought it was a software fix...I'll try it anyway. Cheers.

    and it works great, never cease to amaze me how a common person creates such a simple and effective fix and nvidia/ati don't or won't where people keep on waiting eternally for an official fix.

    meh

    Installing a driver for your CRT is a good idea as you get proper HZ and Colour in the ".ini files"

    I have modded the Sony FW900 Driver to be 64bit for Vista and Win 7.

    None of the so called software fixes work bar the one bellow.

    This is the only permanent fix (per driver install).

    Win 7 is a bit different, you may need change timing from Auto to another option when your trying to apply a "Custom Res".

    All my games run at 1920x1200 @ 96HZ and Desktop is 1600x1000 @110HZ and nothing changes it as its now fixed for as long as drivers are not updated (then I simply run App again and reboot and sorted again).

    If you want to properly override the EDID on any monitor you need to flash its firmware, you would use "Windas" for the Sony FW900 and change the HZ for the set RES's and even add some of your own RES's.

    It has been done by a few elsewhere and I aim to set 1920x1200 to 100HZ and 1600x1000/1680x1050 to 120HZ for Nvidia 3D use.

    :confused: you don't need install driver for any CRT monitor if CRT monitor hasn't new driver yet for win vista/7!!
    you MUST "manual" in custom resolution to work for win7 only.
    you have consensus to read my post important!! loool

    I'm trying hard to understand your post (I aint sure if your native English talking).

    Installing a proper driver from your monitor MANUFACTURER is good becauase the INI files will have the proper RES+HZ supported and Colour Files.

    The ones in Windows and Windows update do not always have same info and I can say that from my own experience.

    Once your posts actually make sense and I can understand them I will be able to decipher them better.

    I ain't the one on here who is having issues with Win 7 and REZ+HZ so I must be doing something right.
