How to enable 120hz in 2d on LG W2363D - Page 2

post #11 of 29
I have 2 of the monitors with no issues running 120Hz in 2D, I never even use 3D. When you go to the properties of the monitor it doesn't allow you to change the screen refresh rate to 120Hz?

Nope, I've tried pretty much everything at this point, doesn't seem to be anyway to get above 60hz with the amd 6950.

That sucks to have to buy a new video card to get 120Hz. When I first got these monitors I was using a 5870 and was able to run 120Hz in 2D.

So your 5870 worked fine doing 120hz in 2d, they the 6950 should be able to do it, what did you have to do to make it work?

Nothing special. I was able to go to the monitor properties and change the refresh rate to 120Hz. The only time I've not been able to run them at 120Hz in 2D is if they are plugged into the onboard video on my mobo.

Ok I feel sick now, I just stuck my hd4870 in without even installing any drivers and it instantly allowed me to select 120hz, it's running at 120hz now, I feel sick, been 14 hours messing about with the hd6950

Hey I see your monitor arrived. What brand is your 6950? For example the Asus 6950 has a manual switch on the card itself to toggle dual link DVI on and off so you might want to check around for that hmmm.

It's a Sapphire 6950 1gb 1 dvi-s and 1 dvi-d, reference and unlocked.

But the monitor is awesome, I tested input lag very quickly and it has like no input lag, very good.
Picture and colour are pretty good, I used settings from a calibrated display.

Brightness 30
contrast 55
Gamma 0

6500k
red 50
Green 44
Blue 38

Thru mode on obviously.
gonna check out 120hz on my 4870 in a minute.

Does anyone have this monitor and running at 120hz with either a 6950/6970.
I'd really appreciate it if you'd post and say what model etc.

Yes, i had the same problem.

I have an Ati Radeon 4850 with 2 screens.
I found out, when i changed my lg w2363d to the other dvi port, and disconnect my other 60hz panel, i could actually select 120 hz. Now i have 1 monitor on my pc. didnt try it yet with 2 since i have this problem a couple of minutes.

Just got this monitor today.
I hope it will help you!
