Since it's hooked up - - - when your pc gets to the desktop try turning the new monitor off for about a minute and then turn it on. I'm running a single monitor and my screen would either fade out after a couple minutes or not show windows. I had to repeat turning the monitor off three times before it stayed on for 4 hours (and worked fine this morning).

If that does not work I would try running the monitor by itself. Try both dvi inputs if the first one gives you the same results.

Short of not having a 2nd video card laying around I can't think of a third option but good luck.

One annoying thing about using these monitors, and it's not a monitor issue, but more of a Windows issue (I assume all versions of Windows, but I'm using Windows 7). Most application windows will default to something like 70-80 percent of screen size when they open (that is, if the application can't be configured via settings). This is far too big for this monitor, so you constantly have to re-size default windows so they're not wasting screen real-estate.

Tried it on my mates GTX 260 , got this, not good is it frown.gif

Wouldnt fire up with a dual link dvi , but got this with a normal dvi.

Still going to wait and see what a new cable does.

God, it seems like with the problems that some of you guys are having a dead pixel near the middle of the screen isn't that big of a flaw after all. Hope all of you guys have your problems resolved smile.gif

I just ordered a Shimian qh270 lite myself... Get a little scared now also with those defects in the last pages frown.gif
Cant take the order back unfortunately, otherwise would have changed it to a Crossover in stead I guess

Quick question. I didn't want to start a new thread to ask this question but do all of these Korean monitors use the LM270WQ1-SLA1 panel from LG? TFTCentral says it uses the LM270WQ1 but a different variant and then said it used W-LED. I just wanted to make a confirmation.

Mine just arrived at my doorstep and so far I can't find any issues. The only thing that I'm not liking is the lack of an OSD.

Cant get the display to show the bios or windows, using the dual link dvi cable and a gtx 560, tried both ports on the graphics card, cable different way round, should be fine, the led goes blue and you can see the screen is getting power because you can adjust the brightness.
It just wont show windows, connected it with my dell u2410, and windows is detecting it, very odd indeed, ordered another dual dvi cable to see if thats the problem.
Should a basic dvi cable work with lower resolutions? tried one but nothing, not even bios screen showing.

What model did you get? 2B or 2C (or 2D)?
