Now there's another problem. The Swift will repeatedly lose connection and re-connect from my PC! It goes into "out of range" and then comes back... then goes away and then comes back. I've tried all the display ports on my GTX 980 and made sure that all connections were good. I've tried unplugging and plugging the power back into the Swift. It will just continue to lose signal and regain it, and lose signal and regain it. And it will also flicker black on the display as well, as if the connection isn't 100%.
It just constantly loses signal and re-gains signal, then loses signal and regains signal. I'm just trying to identify what the issue is here so that I can replace whatever may be causing these issues. Could it be the DisplayPort cable? Or is my Swift defective? I really don't think it's my GTX 980, especially since it outputs to HDMI completely fine and without any issues whatsoever. I've also pretty much ruled out software being an issue due to the fact that I've completely re-installed Windows along with all necessary drivers and the issue still persists.
Also, I have the latest BIOS for my motherboard, and latest NVIDIA drivers for my GTX 980 (even tried older drivers as well, still didn't work)
EDIT: Here's a pic of it running without any NVIDIA drivers installed whatsoever. Stays on perfectly fine. As soon as I install the drivers, I begin to have issues.
Just a quick update... I finally fixed this issue. Go ahead and take a wild guess as to what the issue was?
It was the DisplayPort cable that came with the Swift. I purchased a $25 high quality Belkin DisplayPort cable, and plugged it right in, and it worked flawlessly. I cannot believe how smooth this monitor is. CS:GO just looks........ unbelievable to say the least. Can't wait to keep playing with it some more.
