Help!!! What'd I do!!!!!

Panel was PERFECT!!! No bleed, no stuck/dead pixels. Tonight I went to take the bezel off so I can spray paint it flat black. In the process of taking off the bezel I also wanted to see if I could remove the speakers (they pop when I turn on the PC/monitor, even when set at 0 volume and not hooked up). I had removed the two side frames to get the panel out of the back bezel but gave up as all the wires give basically no room to maneuver.

I go to turn the panel back on and I get this smudge in the middle, about 2 inches up from the bottom. Only shows up on black, not on red/blue/green/white. I can press around it and it'll go away. Did I tweak my frame??? Please tell me this is fixable!!!!

-edit, took it apart again. No noticeable frame bends. Put back together and still have the issue.

-edit. Took it apart, kinda went all barbarian flexing it on the back side seeing if that'd help. Ends up I now have about 10+ green globs on the lower end of my panel from lett to right lol. Sigh. I laid the monitor down horizontal and am gonna go to bed. HOPEFULLY over night the panel's layers will have played nice with each other and "self healed" and fixed itself. Otherwise I have a $335 paperweight... oh well. Life goes on, I'll just go buy another Qnix.

-edit: Screw it, ordered another one.

It's really not as bad as everyone makes it out to be, especially once you disable all of their useless metro apps and download a program like oblytile (which lets you add full sized program icons to the start screen (or use an alternative start menu, which i believe they are including in the update).
The Good:
[*] The amazing new task manager.
[*] The ability to mount .iso files natively is also very helpful.
[*] A lighter, less resource intensive OS. This brings: Noticeably Faster boot times, better desktop and gaming performance (though for most games it's probably not too noticeable, I think it's somewhere between 1% - 4% for most games), as well as slightly less RAM usage.
[*] Slightly better built-in VPN support
[*] Native 3D Printer support
[*] A more minimalistic looking UI (if you're into that.)

The Bad
[*] NO MORE SHADOWCOPY mad.gif (It's still built into the OS they just won't let you enable it, probably my biggest issue with Windows 8/8.1)
[*] Stupid metro apps (which can be disabled)
[*] A little to much social integration (most of which can be disabled, and the way they did it in office is a lot worse than the little they did in windows)
[*] Windows explorer is set up a little weird for some people (the absence of the details pane at the bottom is a little annoying), but if you want the explorer to look exactly like it did in 7 you can download Old New Explorer
[*] The folders that come up under "My computer" (this can be fixed with a quick registry edit)
[*] Dozens of tiny, but bearable annoyances that are supposed to be fixed with the new update.


Overall it has some minor, mostly bearable annoyances, but its benefits greatly out way its flaws, especially once you get used to it. Progress is (mostly) progress in this case. Hope that helps.

Are there any settings I am missing? I thought I had messed with PCI-E in bios, but I checked that and it's 100mhz. I can't really think of anything else. I'm running Win 8.1 now, so it doesn't seem to be the OS since it did the exact same in Win 7.

i have the exact same issue. Very odd indeed.. what are you specs?

ive been using 8 and now 8.1 since release with StartIsBack never had a bad thing to say.

What determines a monitor's ability to OC? Is it the PCB/bypass board?
I'm stuck at 103 Hz - would acquiring a new PCB/bypass board possibly allow higher refresh rates?

Had to pay customs fee before they will even consider delivering it. Currently in the East Midlands, so hopefully it gets delivered tomorrow. I hope it's absolute spot egg for ni-on £250 now.

£26, apparently valued at £100 when shipped. Does that seem right?

yeah £26 is a bit on the high side (someone else paid £36) - but that's fine.
I paid £16 for customs.

Quite brilliant shipping speed and tracking though especially from that far away.
