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.
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.
