Just got my first 120hz monitor and I dont get why the only refresh rate available for me is 60hz.
I asked someone at micro center about this and he showed me a 120hz monitor with win 7 that had multiple resolutions, including 120hz, available in windows in the advanced windows display settings. He said I needed to uncheck the box that says "hide modes that this monitor cannot display", but this box is greyed out for me.
Same in catalyst control center, 60hz only.
Yea thx someone on another forum did say that no adapter like the one im using will support the 120hz refresh rate. Either way I have a suspicion having the adapter might be the culprit.
I have a high speed mdp to dp on the way from amazon i ordered hopefully that will clear things up.
did using the dvi-d fix this issue? I am having the same problem
Wow Wth I cant believe ppl are still replying to this thread, I fixed my issue several months ago.
I believe at the time, because displayport was so new to me, that it didnt register to me till later that my monitor had a display port connection, so now Im just using a high speed minidp to Dp cable, and yes I get 120hz refresh rate with that.
None of the combos I tried with the minidp to dvi adapter worked btw.
Another option, that apparently just became recently available is a high speed minidp to hdmi cable, these were off the market for some time but recently became available again.
