I have no idea, but I am not going to question it.
Finally got it working after tons of troubleshooting.
I have random notes of what didn't work, what I did wrong etc, so Ima put em all down for future users.
Take your time getting the bezel off, and be extremely careful around the power button. Be patient and don't strip a screw and have to use a drill to get it out
I am currently running catalyst 11.8 because it's the only stable version that wants to work. AMD drivers are horrible, I got tons of errors with downloading the latest drivers and had to install net. framework that didn't help at all so today I learned 11.8 works with the catleaps.
I managed to break my power connector to the panel with all the buttons, I don't think it was properly mounted, it came off too easy. Anyway you really don't need it. My monitor stays on no matter what, I could jerry-rig it, with some tape and what not to hold it in place but It wouldn't look cleanly and if I tried to wedge it in there, my tempered glass bezel will not fill.
So at first my computer didn't recognize the catleap at all, finally it did, and when it did I got an error message saying it was unable to save display settings. I unhooked everything off my PC, including the PSU cables, moved it downstairs ( for the sake of convenience). Plugged everything back in and boom got an image. A buddy of mine said unhooking my PSU on my computer probably flushed the mobo out, or any other hardware. Something technical to do with stored up useless energy, idk either way it worked!
Colors look amazing, is there a decent calibration tool to use with this? I would like to see if it could get even better!. My brightness settings seem perfect for my eyes at the moment, and at night if it bothers me I can always go through my catalyst control center to tone down the brightness.
EDIT: I don't notice any dead pixels from an arms length away. Bought mine from green-sum, fast shipping, good packaging just a little rough start.
Happy weekend!Edited by Miagi100 - 4/13/12 at 11:13am
