LB should stick right after yes, why would you change your refresh at any point in time anyway?

It doesnt mean you are forced to game on 1080p tho, LB still works with every resolution

New Simple Method Of Enabling LightBoost on 120 Hz Monitors

Supported: BENQ XL2411T, XL2420T / ASUS VG248QE, VG278H, VG278HE / Acer HN274H

1. Download the ToastyX Custom Resolution Utility
2. Run CRU.exe
3. Under "Detailed Resolutions", click "Add"
4. Enter the numbers found in the screenshot.
(Most important: Make sure Vertical Total is 1149. You need an nVidia Geforce card)
5. Click OK, and reboot.
6. LightBoost should now be enabled automatically when you switch to 1920x1080 at 120Hz

does this run on DP also?

Today I was just browsing the internet and my screen went off for 2 seconds and there was this USB-plug unplugg sound(?) and then it came back?

Why would it make USB sound and screen go off? Is it something to worry about?

It can take an hour to get everything correct. Before you calibrate, do set an ASUS to about 90% Contrast in OSD. (Or if you got an XL2411T, set it to 65% contrast). Any higher and the white levels clips. The rest of calibrating can be done via nVidia Control Panel to make colors look better.

i'm not speaking about the lightboost.

I means the GAMMA SETTING that in the Asus OSD is not there, so i'm asking if setting by Control Panel instead OSD is the same or different.

Got this working on my Radeon 7970 by using my Laptop's 570m as a surrogate withi a DVI to HDMI adapter (and boy did the NV drivers ever NOT want to cooperate).

Somethiing worth noting:
The VG248 (in service mode) had the PanelSSC value change from 30 to 0, when in 3d lightboost mode activated, and it was back at 30 in other refresh rates without 3D.
Don't know if that means anything...

New Simple Method Of Enabling LightBoost on 120 Hz Monitors
UPDATE: This simplet method works only if the monitor has ever been initialized into 3D Vision mode at least once in its lifetime (and it hasn't been unplugged since). The more reliable way of enabling LightBoost is still the LightBoost HOWTO

- Yes, switching to 144 Hz turns off LightBoost
- You can check LB is on by displaying your monitor's OSD menus and seeing the "LightBoost" setting being unlocked
(You can also open a bright window and wave your hand across it -- your hand wave should look stroboscopic, as LightBoost is a refresh-synchronized strobe backlight)

Yes, it does. As long as you're able to do 1920x1080p 120Hz regular, it will also do LightBoost 120Hz.

Great to hear you got Radeon LightBoost working. It will keep working on VG248QE's on Radeon's (once initialized by a surrogate nVidia system; even laptops) provided you don't unplug the power cable of your monitor.

If there is no gamma setting but you should change between modes (e.g. Theater, Game, Sports, Text) -- that will adjust the gamma to the territory you prefer. Then do the rest of your gamma calibration via either "Windows 8 Display Calibration", or "nVidia Control Panel" or a third-party adjustment program.
