I logged back in and the AMD drivers weren't installed, but the color of my display looked way better(like it did with lightboost off) and lightboost was on! I can definitely see the improvement of lightboost now.
What just happened? Whatever did happen, im super happy with it. The colors look great!
Whoa. An unusual situation. I need to understand this better, so that I can add entries to my LightBoost FAQ if there's a clear/easy fix for your situation. This is very confusing behaviour for LightBoost. It's wholly possible earlier, that 3D Mode is being enabled without LightBoost successfully being enabled.
1. Is your monitor now in 3D mode?
2. You see the LightBoost motion blur elimination effect now?
2. You say your LightBoost colors are good looking? (That's more common with VG278H's and XL2720T's than with VG248QE's).
To help explain things better, LightBoost is a two-step activation process
(A) LightBoost is an nVidia-specific lock built into your computer monitor. 3D Vision drivers (or ToastyX Strobelight) is needed to "unlock" the LightBoost feature. Once it is unlocked, it can easily be turned on/off. You do not need to unlock again until you unplug your monitor. (DONE)
(B) You need Custom Resolutions with a Vertical Total of 1149. (Added either by nVidia Control Panel Custom Resolution, ToastyX CRU.exe, or automatically installed as a "120Hz strobed" in ToasyX Strobelight Setup). You need to re-install these custom strobed modes everytime you upgrade your graphics drivers. Did you do this? (NOT DONE?)
The easiest way is via ToastyX Strobelight. To do (B) you simply run strobelight-setup.exe again, everytime you reinstall your graphics drivers.
That's why both executables are needed, ToastyX strobelight-setup.exe does (B) and ToastyX strobelight.exe does (A).
ToastyX mentioned he is considering merging both executables to make this process easier, possibly with an automatic detection whenever strobed modes are now missing (e.g. due to graphics drivers reintsalled)Edited by mdrejhon - 7/4/13 at 1:08pm
