Graphics card issue maybe? What is the card? Are you overclocking it?

Overclocked to 110hz = fine for a while then garbaged image as seen above
Overclocked to 96hz = see above^^

Once my screen goes to hell I have to restart the computer to get it to display again.
I also have another monitor hooked up (hanns.g hg281d) and when I unplugged my QNIX when it was looking like the picture above, my hanns.g displayed the same garbage.

Whats going on??

Turn off ULPS if you have it turned on. That is often the culprit of these messed up images.

What GPU are you using?

I just got my hands on a QNIX qx2710 2560x1440. Note that its the one with DP, DVI and HDMI. I connected to a Laptop, so I am forced to use HDMI.

Im from South Africa, so we dont have access to Amazon/eBay all those kinds of site, so I was forced to source it locally. Still, it was cheaper than a main brand of screen, which would be about R9000, I paid R5000 for this screen.

I have read a lot of this thread, but I dont have the time really to read over 800 pages smile.gif

I dont think my BLB is bad on my panel, but I am concerned that my blacks appear too dark. This screen came with OSD and brightness and contrast was on full. I put them down, but I have no idea what level they should be on frown.gif

I noticed this last night when I moved my Steam window across from my QNIX to my laptop screen. On the Qnix it was looking a bit too dark and couldnt make out things, but on Laptop screen it was the perfect grey colour and looked good

Can someone help me please? redface.gif

I'm using a 7970ghz ed at stock speed. Just disabled ULPS so hopefully I don't have that issue any more!

Will loaded a ICC profile fix my black issues? Trying to figure out if these profiles adjust the bightness levels, or if I need to load a custom profile and still manually adjust my brightness etc etc

Hi

I'm considering ordering one of these monitors.

Question:
These monitors have "bypass-type" boards that do no reworking of the image. What does that mean for lower res (eg 1080p) content or 4:3 games? I have an Nvidia 600-series gpu. Does the monitor stretch what it gets, or does it just display it directly, centered with black borders? If the monitor sretches the content, is there a nice and easy way to force the GPU to output it in some letterboxed or centered unstreched format?

If I missed an earlier reply or should post this elsewhere, please let me know smile.gif I don't really know the search terms to use for this.

Cheers

no scaling, means no stretching - "Does the monitor stretch what it gets, or does it just display it directly, centered with black borders?" is what it does. (unless you have GPU scaling or software scaling, but the MONITOR itself doesn't
