120Hz problems with Samsung s23a700d

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to run my Samsung S23A700D monitor in 120Hz mode as opposed to 60Hz at 1920x1080. But for what ever reason when I set it to 120Hz the picture is fuzzy and seems compressed to a point it is unusable. It's connected to a Nvidia GTX 680 Asus DirectCU II Top graphics card with a DVI-D dual link cable.
I have tried HDMI cables and DVI cables to try and get it to work properly but I have had no luck. The only option I can see now is trying a display port cable, but the monitor doesn't have such a connection on it. So the only way to do it would be an adapter, but if I use an adapter from display port to say DVI-D dual link I could possibly be back to square one (since I'm not sure if the adapter would slow down the display port cable if that is the problem).
If anyone could help I would be so grateful I have been trying to get this working for weeks.

Thanks you for reading and any help you can provide.

I'd tell you to call Samsung for support.........but they can't help you.
I should know...I used to work there.

I'd say try it on a different PC at 120hz and see if it does the same thing.

The only thing I can try it on is my laptop via HDMI which won't work in 120Hz doing that on there since I can't actually select the 120Hz on my laptop but can on the desktop.

My monitor requires DVI-I dual link cable to operate at 120hz and it came with the cable. I'm not sure Samsung requires the same thing, but I would assume so. I would have expected the instructions to explain this to you.

Thanks for the replys guys, I have bought a high speed hdmi cable which has enabled the monitor to actually run in 120Hz mode. Only one problem now is that I am getting blue dots/ artifacting on the screen (mostly on black images). Any thoughts or suggestions?
