@mdrejhon, did you read my last post in this thread?

In Strobelightbeta the new display name in is NV 1x3 (1 active)*. So 1 monitor with save changes applied. But lightboost will not activate.. I have two VG278HEs and one VG278HR.,

*edit. It appears it will go into lightboost if you select Maximize 3d Performance also..

After a few days of trying off and on I have come to a comfortable conclusion that strobelight beta 2 will not work for me with the latest nvidia beta driver version 331.40. mdrejhon should I bring this to your attention? Could it be just that it will not work with this current beta release because it is a version that was flung out to the public on a knee jerk reaction for the release of BF4? And so possibly strobelight beta 2 should work with the next world release of nvidia drivers? I sure hope so.. The difference between the two driver versions is about 30% increase in FPS for myself.. Unfortunately playing in lightboost mode doesn't compare to a more fluid non-lightboost mode.. I hope it can work in the future. I have faith.. I bought these monitors knowing this is a good thing, and have already given a donation. I will gladly give again if this can be back up and working.. Thanks. Steve

lightboost is working for me with the latest beta driver (331.40)

did u rerun strobelight-setup und resettet your monitor and reinstalled it? this is important if you change your driver. every time i change my display driver i have to reset und reinstall stoblight-setup, otherwise it doesnt work.

will lightboost work with r9 290x? I probably won't but i was thinking of maybe selling my 780 and getting an r9 290x heh.


Ironmaiden, lightboost works for me with latest beta drivers. I followed toasty's instructions and used strobelight.exe. i have to just set games to match the same hz as my lightboost and it works fine.

Wow. OK, there's a different, older method of enabling LightBoost via a monitor .INF method that I will reactivate (ASUS VG278H EDID override). This is the oldest, most complicated LightBoost HOWTO, but I will republish it somewhere in a hidden page, for unlucky people who are stymied by nVidia drivers.

Meanwhile, bring that to ToastyX's attention immediately at monitortests.com

Your model, and one other model I forgot (But it was another older BENQ too)

That would be awesome mdrejhon. Thank you..

And for you lads that have it working.. Im guessing you have it working on a single monitor and not triple surround.. lightboost will work in any mode BUT triple monitor surround. Something in the way nvidia has changed the way it performs its spanning that has strobelightbeta stumped..

*Edit: I have PMed ToastyX about the issue and he says that "its a nvidia problem that they need to fix." And in saying that I feel that it might be just a problem for this beta version. It shouldn't be to long before another version is released.

Wanting to let you know mdrejhon that the latest beta's did something weird to Surround for me as well, I rolled back so hopefully on Nvidia's next driver set this issue doesn't happen again. Hoping the next driver set fixes this issue, just surprised it happened as the last few drivers, even BETA's, were fine with the program.

To submit a bug report on this, we need to send them to ToastyX (and perhaps to nVidia as well). Can you post here and describe the problem:

-- ToastyX: Post on ToastyX's monitortests forum, so that he can fix ToastyX Strobelight:
http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-Strobelight-LightBoost-Utility-for-AMD-ATI-and-NVIDIA?page=1

-- nVidia: Likewise, post an issue report in nVidia's Geforce forums at:
https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/615173/geforce-drivers/official-nvidia-331-40-beta-display-driver-feedback-thread-released-9-30-13-/37/

Alternatively, try enabling LightBoost on your monitors using the "lightboost.bin" CRU method (Alternate LightBoost HOWTO #3) at www.blurbusters.com/lightboost/howto

I sent Toastyx a PM a few days ago about this issue. He seemed to think that it was a nvidia driver problem and its something they need to fix.. Possibly this presumes we wait until the next nvidia driver release to see if its just a one off thing..

I also posted this issue in the Nvidia driver feedback forum.

I also just tried CRU again with a fresh mind and can confirm that it does not work..

I even tried injecting an .inf override profile to the monitor via the Device manager and that didn't work either... Using the steps in the CRU "How to" it gets to the point where you have the emitter active in the Set Up Stereoscopic 3D panel, but as soon as you either exit then or finish the setup wizard, windows still reverts back to a nonlightboosted frequency.
