Hulustar "supposedly" requested DHL to pick up my monitor but he's been saying that for a week... nothing yet....

I *am* sure I didn't turn test mode off 'cos the watermark is still there (I don't mind it tbh so left it on)... or are you talking Nvidia only?

I want to install the latest beta drivers soon (13.6 I believe) but want to go about it correctly...

Could someone clarify the correct steps to take...?

You need to unpatch and turn off test mode. Restart and then uninstall drivers restart. Install new drivers restart. And then repatch and turn on test mode and restart..

Oh ok thanks thumb.gif

TBH I don't think I'll bother for the moment then, will wait for the next 'proper' release from AMD with some major fixes (hoping micro-stutter will be a priority)...

I don't know about the watermark, doesn't bother me honestly.
Also like Onegun said, once you turn off test mode, the watermark doesn't disappear until you restart.

It's not that hard, just reverse order of what you did to patch.

MY X-STAR


I have got around to doing the blb tape fix worked a charm thank you
post #2940 of 25887
I read the OP, very informative, thanks.

It sounds like the Qnix qx2710 is the one for me. Is there not a panel exactly like that with a HDMI though? I would just like to have that option.

The Qnix qx2710 has speakers right? I don't expect them to be good, I'll get on to buying a dedicated pair ASAP.

I have a glossy TV and hardly notice it even though its beside a window. So there's no point in going matte really is there, I'll just be losing image clarity right?
