I've been playing on 144HZ for about a year now. A few days ago I downloaded Windows 10, and still had 144hz. When I woke up today I only get 60hz... That's the only options both on my nividia and monitor setings.. WTF. If I set my native resolution down to 1024x768 I can get 120hz, but wtf. That looks weird, and I had 144hz on 1920x1080 native resolution yesterday.. Not sure if windows 10 bleeped me over or whatever happened, but I'd be incredible happy for some solutions to my problem..

By far the simplest fix is to use Windows System Restore to roll Windows back to a point in time when your computer was functioning correctly. It allows you to undo system changes without affecting your personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos.

Recovery options in Windows 10

If that doesn't help, try restoring an earlier system image or backup.

Very few people use monitor drivers (other than the one's built into Windows) - but they do exist.

And, this may be a problem with your monitor not having the proper, W10 compatible drivers from the manufacturer.

It's likely that an update caused the older monitor drivers to become blocked (due to compatibility issues) and that's why it suddenly reverted to 60 hz.

See if the monitor manufacturer offers W10 compatible drivers.


Otherwise, I'd suggest posting over in the Internal Hardware forums for some more expert advice.

Good luck!
