I can't really fault the monitor since it works perfectly when hooked to my GFs ATI card in her box, but it looks like the graphics card wasn't the problem.
Does anyone have any additional help they could offer? I've tried different cables, different screen settings, flash my motherboards BIOS, and now even a different high end graphics card. I'm at my wits end. How can my girlfriends $60 graphics card push this monitor and my $500 dollar one can't?
OK-- I am lucky because I have the ideal test environment. I use two of these monitors at work. I tested with a working power brick / dvi cable that I've used for 3+ months. I tested on 3 separate machines.
Here is the behavior. I have tested multiple times with both power bricks.
Monitor will turn on OK for 10sec-1min, and green problem will happen (regardless of power supply).
Turning the monitor on/off does not help this process. And the green issue quickly becomes worse line by line until it's like our screenshots.
Letting the monitor sit for a few hours (Yes, hours) seems to turn it back on to the 'OK For 10sec-1min'.
The shipped power brick seemed to cause the green issue to happen more quickly (though, this was not well tested).
Your graphics cards are fine, the dvi cables are fine, your monitor is bad, just like mine. I am trying to go through the return process now. Best of luck, this is a horrid situation, however, the seller seems to be working with me (also bigclothcraft). Will keep you posted if anything else important happens.
Edit: Does your GF's ATI card work on the monitor for more than 5 minutes? The green issue isn't immediate for me, it takes at least 10sec. I have only tested with NVidia cards here, (460gtx, 465gtx, 8800gt). Still think the monitor is bad, though!
I have the monitor hooked up to an ATI card now for my friend, seems to be working just fine (5minutes so far). I'll end up just swapping an nvidia compatible monitor.. but what a nightmare. Maybe there's some nvidia settings that would make it compatible?Edited by mirox - 9/20/12 at 6:11pm
