Unable to display 144hz on my Asus VG248QE - Page 2

post #11 of 16
You can try installing the refresh rates with toastyx strobelight. This is how us AMD users do it since nvidia has a hold on lightboost as well..

I am not sure if my GPU is the problem as it's a little dated (GTX 460).
If you have 120Hz but not 144Hz, then it's not a DVI cable problem or a DVI wrong-port problem (that often limits you to 60Hz)

To re-add 144Hz, you can use nVidia Custom Resolution (add 144Hz "Reduced", not "Auto"), ToastyX Custom Resolution Utility (likewise), or ToastyX Strobelight (add "120Hz Strobed", "121Hz" and "144Hz" in strobelight-setup)

Sounds to me like you installed strobelight wrong.

But why am I having to re-add? Is it something I did when I initially attempted to install the Lightboost?

I'm currently running Lightboost now but believe it can only be done @120hz, correct? When I initially did it I neglected to run the "reset.all" tool to eliminate the extra monitors along with adding the product number that was specified. I've since went in and fixed those.

What I mean is that on the following part of the installation, you didn't add 144 Hz.

^^

Strange, I didn't even see that step during the installation. Will have to install that.
