    force 60hz

    Windows 8 keeps downgrading my screen setting to 30hertz on my HTPC. It happens every couple of days... It's very annoying and each time i have to go in my screen settings and put it back to 60hz

    is there a way to force 60hz forever ?

    Hello Anorchoi,

    If you have NVIDIA graphics/video, then you might see if the tutorial below may help you to keep your screen refresh rate at 60hz.

    And i have already set the refresh rate to 60hz in catalyst control panel. I don't understand why it downgrades to 30hz sometimes

    Could it be due to the use of teamviewer ?
