Default Windows 7 refresh rate issue with CRT monitor

Well, i have an LG F900P which supports 120Hz @ 1280x960 and 100Hz @ 1600x1200. I've installed the latest .inf driver for my monitor but still, the max refresh rate i can select is 85.

I've read some solutions by removing a pin from the DVI adapter but it didn't work. I tried adding a custom res with 120Hz but Windows 7 resets the custom res to 85Hz.

So, is there any solution to this problem?

PS: In Windows XP i could use both of them without any issues!

Oh Noes!!! More bad news

Its says 120hz successful but its never actually @ 120hz when testing the custom res

It works in Vista but not 7


I hope this just means we have to wait for a driver update...


The "Hide refresh rates that this monitor cant display" checkbox is greyed out in the 7 monitor control panel on mine.


GREAT !!! NOW IVE MANAGED TO DELETE 1600x1200 ON ONE OF MY MONITORS

HOW DO I PUT IT BACK???????????


I shouldn't be let near a PC really...

False alarm, I did the same thing on XP but 7 has managed to keep the resolution

Weird. I have the same monitor, and the max I can get on 1600x1200 is 85hz.
Different revision maybe?

I was high when posting or what? Yeah yehuda, the F900p supports 1600x1200 @85Hz and 1280x960 @100Hz. Still, i couldn't enable them in 191.07 so i went back to 190.62.

Made a custom res and selected GFT Mode. Now i have a 1280x960 res @ 100Hz

85hz was giving me eye strain...
