ToastyX solved the LightBoost enable/disable problem by using 120Hz for LightBoost, and 120.5Hz for non-LightBoost (rounded to 121Hz).

Via ToastyX Strobelight, install:
120Hz strobed
121Hz non-strobed.

It works fine on all LightBoost monitors.

Oh ok, that's good.

Say for example I'm in the 120Hz strobed mode and in 2D mode, then I decided to go into 3D mode for a single game what do I do (Stereoscopic mode in the NVIDIA panel is disabled as per recommendation)?

LightBoost has less eyestrain than non-LightBoost?

PWM flicker is different from LightBoost flicker for a few reasons (e.g. lack of motion blur eyestrain). Some people are more bothered by motion blur eyestrain (or PWM motion artifacts) than by flicker eyestrain. It depends on the person.

I'm about to bust a nut. I don't know what the hell has happened but I have tried everything to fix it. I think it is either a cable or monitor or it could be the strobelight program. Basically, I can't run anything in 3D Vision now, even the test application in the Nvidia control panel. Every time I run anything in 3D I get that annoying message in red and the eyes are reversed.

Everything seems to look fine, 5760x1080x32x120 and yet the card doesn't like this mode and says it's wrong so, I think to start with I should remove strobelight-beta. Any registry keys I need to know about to fully remove it?

Oh the only time I managed to fix it was when I completely unplugged the power to all 3 monitors. but after a few minutes I heard a windows sound like hardware disconnecting and then it went back to displaying that message.

Update: Did I mention I was running Windows 8? I've had nothing but trouble with it and it can kiss the lowest part on the back of my ass. After getting rid of that utter crapfest and back on to Windows 7 everything is running perfectly, 3D Surround included.

I'm having hard time getting this to work and suspecting corrupted win since when I download INI File it saves in VLC and when I add it to CRU utility it shows but I can't set it up via Nvida Control Panel

Can someone post or PM me INI File in zip or help me with this
Thank you

Remember to click the "Edit" button and change the monitor "Product ID" to ACI27F8.

ok I see it ..it looks like it defaulted when I rein-staled the driver ,I copy-pasted ACI27F8 and things are a lot dimer now I guess it's working now
thank you

Have you ever tried the brand new ToastyX Strobelight beta? Instead of ToastyX CRU? It now makes it easy to turn on/off LightBoost via a hotkey (all 3 monitors simultaneously at the same time).

Are you using ToastyX CRU so you can get the bezel correction features, or other features?

Say for example I'm in the 120Hz strobed mode and in 2D mode, then I decided to go into 3D mode for a single game what do I do (Stereoscopic mode in the NVIDIA panel is disabled as per recommendation)?

What is your say on BFI?

For 3D stereoscopic mode, strobing is always enabled. Just re-enabled Steroscopic mode in NVIDIA Control Panel, whenever you want to run 3D Vision in your game, and then turn off the checkbox when you're going back to regular LightBoost 2D.

Some configurations have difficulty enabling 3D Vision, so you may need to fiddle with this a bit, until you're able to switch between 2D LightBoost (3D Vision disabled) and 3D LightBoost (3D Vision enabled). This is much easier with the vendor-supported method than with the 3D Vision method.
