PLEASE HELP!!! Korean PLS 1440p 120hz Monitor Screwed?!?!?!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, so basically today I was messing around with my settings in CRU, and followed a post on overlord forums for some good manual timings. I set those timings and the nightmare begins.

I boot up, instantly, without any warning, the monitor starts flashing a cycle between a full sized single shade of red, switches to green, to blue, white, black, gradient of shades of grey, to a rainbow and repeats the cycle. I reboot again and same problem. Now I have a spare GTX 660 so I put it in to replace my Hd 7950, and I boot up to windows normally. Relieved, I use CRUs reset-all.exe program, and restart. Now I'm not booting with the GTX 660 anymore! Its flashing through the same cycle, red, green blue etc. I then take out the card, put it in my other PCI-e slot, and boot. Same thing again with both gpus!

I've disconnected the SSD now, and my HDD, so theoretically any CRU settings should be well and truly rid of, and its still doing the same thing! I've read that this cycle happens when a monitor is dying, but if it booted up on bad CRU settings and after running reset all it didn't, what could be wrong? Have I damadged the monitor?!

PLEASE HELP!

First take a step back. Next Move the card to another port on whatever GPU you have in(use the other card if one port is only DVI-D) Then try and boot. If it works then try again and don't necessarily worry about it(this DID happen to me, the exact same scenario but it did not repeat like yours). If you don't get a boot up then connect another monitor up and AFTER getting to windows plug in the Qnix as a secondary display. If it shows up then your golden.

I had this happen to mine and hooking the Qnix up as a second display has fixed every time. After getting into windows and successfully getting the monitor on as secondary you should be able to make primary or "focus" display and then start trying to overclock again normally(i would stay away from those timings though;) ).

Like i said this happened to me and after getting passed it i have not seen any issues since. I also was a bit more careful about what timings i used LOL. I recommend you read quite a bit more and figure out exactly what you are changing rather than just inputting someone Else's timings.0

Hope everything works out

I've had lots of 120Hz users asking me why they can only do 60Hz, until they move the DVI plug. I've even replied to 12-post threads on some forums where no repliers could figure out what was wrong, until I said "Try the other DVI port". This need to be part of the "Encyclopediae 120Hz".

Well trying a different port did not actually work for me but it was the next logical troubleshooting step. Running the monitor after boot and having a different one connect first has never failed. It would be good to have a standard troubleshooting guide somewhere. Maybe i will make one thumb.gif

I should have been more specific, it wasn't that which solved the problem. I did the other thing Spartan said - connecting my pc to a different display and connecting the X-star after it boots.
