Would anyone be interested in a "how to" recording of the install process? I have some desktop recording software and wouldn't mind making a quick video.

Sounds like a good idea, perhaps Mark would post it on his blog too?

At 10% lightboost the full text of speed 30. You need to help your eyes by moving your head from side to side as you read, eyes alone is too difficult

When I right click on the INF and press "install" followed by "open" I get an install error. It says " The INF file you selected does not support this method of installation". This looked like a really simple task :/ Just a few easy clicks. Somehow I have managed to bungle it up.

You're doing it the wrong way, gotta go into device manager.

Right click your monitor, update driver

You need to select the driver manually, "let me choose from list of installed drivers" and all that, and when you get to the screen which has a button labelled have disk, you click have disk. Browse to your driver and install it. voila

Yep -- that's another good method of installing the INF file.

I like right clicking to install the INF file because it puts it as part of the preinstalled monitors list. But apparently, not everyone is able to easily pre-install the INF file by right clicking on it before going to Device Manager.

There are apparently somewhat different steps for Windows 7 systems than for Windows 8 systems, which complicates the instructions a bit. I wish that nVidia would provide an easy driver toggle, making it as easy as turning on/off VSYNC or AA. (we'll need to lobby nVidia sometime this year). That would eliminate all of the INF and REG nonsense in getting this feature enabled!

Well god damn. There it goes! Thank you very much! Turns out your video how-to isn't such a bad idea after all smile.gif Now to test it out smile.gif

I have my contrast set to 65 on my XL2420T and it seems like a nice balance between what I had before and the darker screen after. Anything higher and the whites on icons such as PDFs and excel files gets washed out.
