post #1091 of 25893
Has anyone had their monitor go into a sort of test loop before? I was just sitting here browsing and mine went into a loop of test screens like solid colors and colored bar screens. I could still hear the video I had playing, but I had to restart my computer to get it to stop. simply turning the monitor off and on wasn't enough.

Which of those are noticeable? I haven't noticed anything different going from 60 to 65Hz with the current monitor, or 66Hz on the old Sceptre. Also, what about the old CRTs that would do 75, 80 85Hz, etc?

Are we talking about using something like ReClock to actually send more than 24FPS to the monitor via frame interpolation? If that's what you mean, then yeah 65FPS looks weird for something encoded at 24fps.

Or are we strictly talking about monitor refresh rate?

Hmm no but one dude on TPU is having sort of similar issues with grey screens and the like. His prob may be the cable or even the power brick tho. I have seen solid colors like red and green flash couple times when first turning on/booting up. Also had similiar behavior when trying another cable borrowed from work (which shipped with a super nice NEC 30" so I figure it's quality). Need to try it again (not that I have any known probs with my stock DVI-D cable).

They're all noticeable if you're sensitive enough, and if you aren't you might only notice the tearing, or maybe not even that. Strictly talking monitor refresh rates.



To put things into perspective, I'm the kind of person who is highly distracted by 24fps film. It looks like watching a flip book or something. I slightly notice the refresh on CRT screens, and although it's not too consciously distracting, it gives me migraines. I run all my games with true vsync on because even at 96hz with adaptive vsync, the intermittent minor tearing distracts me heavily and gives me eye strain. And even with my brief run at 130hz I could still see the stop-motion effect in fast moving objects and camera pans.

A good number of people however don't notice any of this. Others do notice, but don't mind. Some even prefer it (a good example would be all those people complaining that The Hobbit looks "too real" because it was played at 48hz). I personally am near sighted can't see s**t past about 10 yards without glasses. We all have different eyesight (and hearing for that matter).

I don't really know where you eyes and brain stand on the matter, so the only way to know would be to test for yourself. If you don't visually notice any weirdness and don't suffer any increased eyestrain or headaches, great, you can run at pretty much any refresh you like. If you DO notice a difference, at least now you know why and how to fix it wink.gif

I've also seen red, green, yellow colors flash when I turn on my PC as well, guess I should get a new power supply or DVI-D cable, or both.

Oh man I get eye strain and headaches all the time. If the new monitor does anything to reduce that, I'll be very grateful. Thanks for the clarification.

Get them more when you use the computer / tv / phone / gameboy / other devices with screens more?

I wouldn't go that far. I am only tried a new cable cause I had one at the office. What happened to this other dude and having to reboot is a different story...at least at this point. I'd prefer it not do that but it may mean nothing.

The RGB flash right at the very start of bootup is normal. It's just testing that your have a video adapter. The reason you don't see it on other monitors is because they have image processors built in, and they just hide that part from view, where as these have bypass boards and what the card outputs is exactly what you see.
