so I'm loving my QNIX except that I can't seem to get the colors right. My whites look more grey than they should.

Hi! I just setup my Qnix 2710 (and potentially will have another 2 monitors) , but the monitor seems to be cycling through different colours on boot.

I tried connecting to another monitor (@1080p) and there isn't a problem on that monitor.

Does anyone have an idea of how I can edit the settings so that my Qnix monitor will display properly?

*I am on Windows 10, if that helps.

I dont remember the minimum required for this monitor, but I think the 6850 is above it. Because know that this monitor is driven directly off the Video Card, main reason it cant be used with onboard VGAs, even if your mobo has a DVI output.

Have you tried a different DVI-D cable?

(excuse the double post)

Just wondering, would a HDMI to DVI or DP to DVI adapter work with this monitor?

for a video card that doesnt have DVI-D conenctor.

I have, but I doubt it's the DVI-D cable. Both cables I've tried works with a Dell monitor.

I think the Qnix 2710 isn't plug and play on Windows either, probably will see if there's a fix after I finish running memtest.

Afaik, you need an active adapter for DP to DVI-D for this montior. Read somewhere that HDMI to DVI-D doesn't work out.

http://www.networktechinc.com/blog/differences-between-dvi-connectors-and-signals-2/276/

read that.
You need a DVI-D Dual Link cable to push above 1920x1200.

could be your problem.

I'm hoping VisionTek DisplayPort to Dual Link DVI-D Active Adapter (M/F)
will work. if it doesnt I'm in big trouble.
Kind of dug myself a hole by buying a DVI only monitor then buying a video card that only has HDMI and DP ports. haha

Quick question. I am trying to mount my qnix onto this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B018MSDG84/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. The thumb screws used to mount the backplate onto the back of the monitor dont work, they fit width wise but are too long so I cant screw them in tight enough to keep the plate from moving. Before I go to the hardware store and hunt through a billion sizes of thumb screws, anyone happen to know the width/length of a thumbscrew i would need?

thanks!
