[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 628

post #6271 of 25893
I have a problem with my qnix and wondering if anyone knows the reason or the cause, on the first day of use I left it on standby for maybe ten minutes, when came back it was in what can only be described as a test mode, ie looping the dead pixel colour screens and grey scale screens, nothing I could do to bring it out of this mode so had to hart reset my rig, unplug the screen etc then was fine again. That night I switched it off overnight. Last night left on standby and this morning I have switched on to find it yet again in this mode only this time have unplugged several times and it is still in that mode, now typing on 15" 900p, really not amused.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Windows 8.1 RTM is out. Haven't installed it yet but from the posts it looks solid.

Oh god is it fast and optimized. So much better than even the jump from 7 to 8. Snappy snappy snappy makes me happy happy happy.

Mine also has a bit of a yellow tint :/ I've been struggling with it for the past few days. I've tried every ICC listed in the OP

It SEEMS to help if you lower the Red & Green values, but I can't get whites to even look as white as my old TN panel frown.gif

The only problem with Windows calibration is it only gives you RGB values many steps after the gamma and there is no good way to quickly switch between them. On top of that the gamma test they give you is lame. There's a lot more to look at, when correcting grey gamma, than looking at the one image Windows provides. Quick Gamma is a little better to switch between colors and is free. I personally use The color profile creator that Adobe provided with CS2 years ago(forget what it's called). I also use a Sypder2Express first to get the "real" baseline color correction and then adjust from there. If you can't get your whites to look white by adjusting those values than you may have to try some more detailed color calibration software. My wife has a monitor that was a little yellow and the only way we got it perfect was by using our friends updated calibrator that had a sensor for 3 channel RGB and for wide and standard gamut. The software alone helped, but there was always a hint of yellow until we used that calibrator.

Those that are using downloaded ICCs need to set the Windows Color CP to activate the profile's gamma values/adjustments as well. See here:

You will also need to enable the profiles gamma correction.

Go into the advanced tab. You need to select "use Windows display calibration" but it is greyed out initially.

Click "change system defaults" and a new window pops up which looks the same as the previous one

Click on "advanced" tab and you should be able to tick "use Windows display calibration" from there. You should see a change in the screens gamma as the corrections from the profile are loaded.

I've done this but have yet to find an ICC that gets rid of the yellowish tint to my whites. Anyone have a good colorimeter I could borrow to match my 2 displays? biggrin.gif I'll pay shipping + tip

Hmm well there is a dude who has lent out his Spyder on an international tour (in Freebies) but not sure if still possible to get in on that. Even manual adjustment in gpu cp not helping (that can be a trial-and-error pain, but still...)?

I've tried using the Nvidia Control Panel to adjust the colors as well, I can make the Qnix look pretty good (so i think), but then when I compare it to my other screen, they just dont match :/ The Qnix's whites just look so tinted in comparison.

Well at this point I am not convinced your own calibration would make a huge diff in this regard either but still definitely worth a shot. On that note, I sent you a PM.

I feel like I'm having difficulty with the nvidia drivers. For example I rebooted and my first screen got affected by my adjustments too afterwards. Is there any work around or alternatives to this?

Edit: Yeah nvidia drivers seem to affect both monitors after a restart.. this makes the calibration no good for me.
