Tried it. Didn't work on mine. But tried active display port adapter to dvi and that didn't work for me but supposedly did on someone elses so i don't know, you might have more luck than i did.

Anyone have a way to get Intel hd graphics 3000 running the monitor 2560x1440 60hz with HDMI? I got it working with a NVIDIA card using the patch on another laptop.

When I`m playing fullscreen, the second monitor gets the color/brightness/gamma adjustments from the first monitor.

is this normal? pretty annoying to re-apply them always afterwards.

There's a great program that forces your .icc profiles even while in games. Typically fullscreen games override your settings, and sometimes don't revert back to your custom color profiles after you exit them.

Try out Color Profile Keeper: http://goebish.free.fr/cpk/

It allows you to load in .icc files onto different monitors, and forces these profiles at all times smile.gif

Thanks for that. Though does not work if you change the color profile with the nvidia CP.

I am using now your calibrated 120hz icc profile, looks pretty good thanks for sharing this here.

Would there be any way that I could make it brighter?

I keep seeing people here saying that the X-Star stand is easier to remove but all the unboxing videos and pixtures I've seen show them to be identical with the Qnix. Did they change the stand on the X-Star in a later revision?

I'm about 300 pages in so far, so the change must've been a while ago.

My passive DL-DVI to DP works, but produces lines that flash in and out of the screen.

The person I bought my Qnix from demo'd it to me using an active DL-DVI to mini-DP adapter(usb-powered) and used his Mac to drive it; this produced a clear signal that had no lines or anything weird.

I've also read that the X-Star needed less work or less screws to be unscrewed compared to the Qnix. Maybe someone who did it on a X-Star can chime in?

Except for the label, the Qnix and Xstar are 100% identical.
Maybe some stands are easier to remove than others, but I doubt that differs per brand.
It's likely you have to open up the bezel in order to remove it.
post #8629 of 25888
Having now seen both there is an actuall difference.

The xstar that I got had those little plastic peg tab things holding the stand in (I was able to pull it out), while the qnix uses skrews.

Not sure if I got some mutant models, but yeah.

Looking at pictures from when people first got them and comparing to now I know there are some minor differences but I never saw that. Could you post some pictures?
