y500 display refresh rate 59Hz to 60Hz

Recommended Posts

It seems the monitor supports 60Hz. But when you try to set it to 60Hz, the configuration cannot be saved.

Any thoughts?

You should've googled it first. Microsoft says...

Certain monitors report a TV-compatibility timing of 59.94Hz. Therefore, Windows 7 exposes two frequencies, 59Hz and 60Hz, for every resolution that is supported at that timing. The 59Hz setting makes sure that a TV-compatible timing is always available for an application such as Windows Media Center. The 60Hz setting maintains compatibility for applications that expect 60Hz.

In Windows 7, when a user selects 60Hz, the OS stores a value of 59.94Hz. However, 59Hz is shown in the Screen refresh rate in Control Panel, even though the user selected 60Hz.

One more great point of the Y500 is that is has been discovered elsewhere on this forums that it's possible to overclock the LCD quite a bit using the EVGA Pixel Clock tool. I keep mine at 75-85hz. I've had it at 100hz + before it started showing artifacts and strange behaviors around 115hz.

Well i dont know if this would apply, but i did purchase a Asus VG248QE and its benefit was the 144 Hz refresh rate, but was only available with the displayport and DVID ports, not the HDMI. I used a DVID port to HDMI cable and got the refresh rates up to 115 with out too many problems, at 120 it started to flash around. but 115Hz isnt too bad. Kinda wished that these had a Displayport =[

sorry to bump old thread but i have the same monitor and bought the hdmi to DVI as well. But I dont know how to increase refresh rates. Ive tried everything. How did you do this? Im getting really tired of my 60hz on a 144hz monitor...

I tried overclocking my refresh rate using EVGA's pixel clock tool in EVGA PrecisionX but it would cause instability in some applications. By that I mean the screen would actually go black until I was able to close the application without seeing anything, not even ALT + TAB would help.To make matters worse, for some applications this would even happen with pixel clocks as low as 75Hz so I just make sure I'm at a flat 60.

When overclocking the screen, is there a high chance of damaging it? I've never heard about that being an option before.

I would be very interested to know if anyone has an answer to this? I too overclocked to 75Hz just the other day after reading a thread. Is there any risk of damage? I am not sure it has even made a difference.

I'm kind of necroing this, but there aren't any risks to overclocking your display. I'm at 90hz right now on my y500, and it's stable that way.

      Hello, I have several Lenovo L530 notebooks, but there is no wi-fi adapter inside. I tried to use my wi-fi adapters, but whti every adapter I have an error "1802 unauthorized network card is plugged in". I have already used all available wi-fi adapters, but no result. I really need professional help and I hope I find it here. As far as I understand there is a way to remove whitelist in BIOS, so here's the file with my BIOS dump.

      Hi all! I am wondering if it's possible to remove the bios whitelist easily. Because of the whitelist, my external gpu setup that I got recently refuses to work. If it helps at all, I know that the wifi card that used to be in the slot was the intel 8265ngw. Here's the bios link if that helps too: laptops and netbooks :: thinkpad x series laptops :: thinkpad x380 yoga :: 20lj :: 20ljs20n00 :: mp1e15eb - Lenovo Support US
      Thanks for your help!
