[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1168

post #11671 of 25888
Does anyone know why my new xstar would not be working, it's connected through dvi right now and is recognized but settings can't be applied. And when turned on the blue power light just flashes. Any ideas on what to do?

Is it broken, or is something else going on?

Might be Coil whine from the PCB. If it is, it can be fixed by putting a small bit of glue around the offending coil.

This link is for an Overloard Tempest monitor so the internals in yours may be a bit different.

You are connected through a Dual-DVI port ?

Exact same problem here. same card and OS. Ive asked a couple times with no help.

Seems to have fixed itself, just took 5 minutes and it went away.

Though, I can confirm that the Multi Input version does not overclock. I guess I will be wasting my other 96hz monitors when gaming frown.gif

Yes, either of the monitors are connected through dvi.

Cool, maybe it was a capacitor on the PCB charging. Overloard computers sells the overclockable PCB for that monitor but its $ 200. If you find a monitor on Ebay with a cracked screen or something you can get it cheap and swap out the PCB's, just a thought,

Oh I see you are going for a Dual monitor set up, hopefully someone will chime in on that. I am only running a single monitor.

Ok, I'm going to check and see if I can run it as a single real quick

EDIT: Monitor by itself does in fact work.

Thinking this may be a driver issue,any thoughts?
