[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 926

post #9251 of 25935
Alright guys, here's the situation:

I got stationed in korea, so i thought it would be a great idea to get one of those super low price (i.e. cheap) 2560x1440 monitors i hear so much about. I didn't bring my desktop with me but i did bring my Sager 9390 (780gtx non-sli version).

I got a x-star for around 280$ (after conversions etc.) and I'm trying to get it running and i'm not having any luck.

I've tried the DVI port in my laptop (still unsure if it's Dual link or not)
I've tried a DVI-D > HDMI cable also (i would assume this would support 2560x1440)

I'm running windows 8.1 and have nvidia drivers 331.58

It's virtually a clean install with only 3 games installed so far.

I power on the monitor, and i get the blinking blue LED in the lower corner.
The thing that sucks though, is i bought it from a local hobby shop, and they don't do returns... which is partially my fault for not asking, but also the language barrier rearing it's ugly head.

Am i hosed? I haven't tried display port > DVI-D yet and honestly i'm not even sure that's a thing.

Am I out 280$ or what frown.gif Someone help!


EDIT : Windows see's that a "DUAL-DVI" is connected, but i can't make any changes. Nvidia control panel also sees this, but again, I am unable to make changes.
When i try to set windows to "Show desktop only on 2" I hit apply and i get : "Display settings could not be changed, Please try a different combination of display settings"

What laptop do you have? HDMI to DVI converters do not work with this monitor. Active displayport to dual link dvi converters will work, but aren't cheap.

Flashing blue power LED means the monitor is in Standby and isn't receiving a signal. Do you see any BIOS screens etc at power up?

Sorry guys I have no idea about how the Vesa mounts work and there are so many choices. How do I choose? I have a QNIX panel but I am using a plastic foldable table right now so I don't know if it's okay for me to use a mount even?

I'd just like to ask for advice.

Just received mine, I'm extremely happy with it, overclocked to 120 Hz like a champ. Loaded a calibration from the first post, looks very good and similar to my calibrated IPS 23".

got a multi input QNIX and I am trying to overclock. Video card is an

ATI 7950 OC Vapor-X on CCC 13.9
Driver Packaging Version: 13.152.1.8-131008a-163824C-ATI
Got these drivers a couple weeks ago.

Patching the driver is super easy, I get "patch ok" message back. The problems come up when creating the new profile via CRU 1.1
I first began by creating the custom resolution with a refresh of 96 as suggested in this thread (by cloning the default one). Upon restarting (so even before I was able to actually apply this newly created profile via CCC!!!) the screen would turn up black. I could see the Bios phase but then righy before win8 was able to load, I got no signal. Shouldnt CRU just create a new profile that I THEN, after rebooting, I have to apply?

After several attempts, just out of curiousity, i made a new profile IDENTICAL (copy and paste - no editing) to the original one, which is the standar 1440p@59.59Hz. Reboot. Same result. Black screen. To make it show somwthing again i need to reset any cry setting by kicking CRU's reset-all.exe.

Am i missing something? Is this expected because this is a multi input which are known to not OC?

Multi-input are known not to overclock, but they usually do not fail in this manner. Usually they just skip frames, which means they seem to work normally, but the extra frames are only partially displayed - lots of tearing is seen.
