I haven't noticed the return from sleep issue with my X34, but frankly i have turning off the display prohibited in Win 10 power management. When I'm using my PC, its on. When I go to bed, I turn it off. So sleep/standby stuff has always been all disabled on my machines.

Though I agree with your comment in that people should NOT have coil whine and stuff like that from a 1200 dollar monitor. That is nuts.

Ugh... Luckily i still had another monitor.... Displayport also wasnt working. Only with DVI was i able to boot, reinstall drivers and now I can boot into windows. This monitor STILL gets no signsl at all in post so i cannot get into UEFI or in safe mode.

Can anyone else confirm on this?

I just received my monitor from NCIX Canada. I unboxed it, placed it on my desk, connected it it via displayport 1.2 with the cables that I've seen recommended on here. Now the problems start.

The monitor does not appear to be detected before windows 10 booting, i don't know if it's because it uses custom drivers, that 21:9 needs to load extra drivers or what, but I cannot get into UEFI at all, nothing displays before windows 10.

I have 3x Asus GTX 980 TI STRIX OC cards with 3xDP ports on them each, I've tried using different ports.

The second biggest problem is the following. I've been reading multiple people saying to reinstall your nvidia drivers after getting the monitor. I don't know if it's my old school mentality, but I re-downloaded the drivers, then went to the control panel and removed everything nvidia that way. Normally it just asks you to reboot and windows set to default drivers and you reinstall over those.

So I uninstalled all my nvidia drivers and instead of defaulting to lower resolution default drivers, the monitor went blank and keeps saying "no signal". I've also been reading on how bad the monitor menu is and yeah... I don't know if it's related to the driver no signal deal, but after i lost signal, all the menu will do is make it appear, change inputs and turn the monitor on and off.

To sum it up, i have no signal in windows 10, no signal while posting, cant enter UEFI or enter safe mode.

Please help! frown.gif

I do not own this monitor yet (it's coming) but I'll try giving some suggestions based on my experience with my ROG SWIFT PG278Q.

1) have you disabled your iGPU? My machine froze many times until I figured out that I should disable it in device manager via safe mode. You can also disable it in BIOS I think.
2)Your method of uninstalling drivers is fine in some cases. But try using DDU and uninstall any Intel, NVidia and Amd drivers you may have previously installed and then do a clean Nvidia driver install. (Obviously switch to your old monitor with dvi or some other connection to do this).
3) I don't know how this monitor works yet, but did you check what input is selected on the monitor?

Hope some of this helps.

Interesting. I had a similar issue with mine, but in reverse. Post was visible but windows 10 was not. I resolved the issue by booting up using the x34 and my old monitor. Windows loaded on my old monitor then i used ddu. Fresh install of nvidia drivers upon reboot and a little mucking around with nvidia control panel. 2nd reboot and it worked fine. Got 2x gtx980ti g1. Make sure ur x3r is plugged into the furthest left dp on the vid card and ur secondary monitor is plugged into the 2nd vid card. Best of luck.

first start up with only x34 via DP did not work

so to start up mine I plugged it in parallel with the old one (old one via DVI)

once both were active in windows, I unplugged the old one

never had a problem later

Hey guys, quick question about the HDMI port. I heard that it was only 50hz cause it was an HDMI 1.4 port, but Doesn't it only apply to the native resolution ?

I plan to plug a PS4 on this monitor,so shouldn't I be able to have 60 Hz since it's only 1080p ?

Or am I missing something thinking.gif

What I meant was why are these expensive monitors having these issues when a $100.00 monitors have no quality control issues as much. I just simply do not understand. If there is a new product that is as expensive as the X34, there should be more quality control and people should be getting good perfectly working monitors. If I were to compare it to Bluray vs DVD. They are different format, but when BOUGHT as new, both shouldn't have any scratches on the discs. It seems like the more expensive the monitor is, the more problem it comes with.

$100 monitors can have just as many problems as a $1300 one if they are newly released. But people on forums talk more about problems with a $1300 monitor than they would of a $100 device that they would simply return and buy another brand without much fuss. If you dish out that kind of money for a monitor, you're in every sense of the word an "enthusiast".
