60Hz problem under Windows 2000/XP: Instructions for taming the frame rate
Installation of the driver
Before installing the driver, we would like to point out that we do not accept any guarantee for the procedure described here! In any case, you should check whether the monitor supports the set refresh rates at all, as otherwise we cannot generally rule out hardware damage, even if we consider it unlikely! It is up to the user to take this risk!
The drivers are installed as usual via the Windows device manager , from now on no special steps are necessary. Alternatively, you can install the driver using the unpacked Setup.exe from the archive, which is in the same directory as the nv4_disp.inf. Under no circumstances should you simply import the driver archive via the 28.32_winxp.exe, as this does not use the edited nv4_disp.inf! After a restart, the installed graphics card driver leads Windows to believe that the graphics card in the example mentioned cannot be operated with a resolution of 640x480 to 1152x864 with any refresh rate below 100Hz! Therefore Windows can no longer fall back on 60Hz in DirectX and OpenGL applications and the problem is solved!
