Not to get you guys nervous but i don't think this has anything to do with drivers it sounds more like faulty gsync module but that is just a a guess.

That's exactly what my monitor (Nov. 2015 unit) started doing recently, it will randomly go black but the LED light stays blue and the only way to get it to work again is hitting the power switch on the back and turning it back on after about a minute. This can happen after 30mins from starting up or sometimes I can go a 5+ hours before it happens just very random.Tried changing the DP cable from the one that came with the monitor and reinstalling GPU drivers but that didn't help. At this point I'm positive the problem lies within the monitor because it functioned fine for about 8 days before the random black screens started. The "Quick Start" option in the monitor OSD in my unit also completely disappeared as an option.

Amazon will be sending me a replacement this week. This kind of sucks since other than the random black screens the monitor was perfect too me no dead/stuck pixels, pieces of dust, BLB, and uniformity was great.

I'm going to have to agree with you here. Interestingly enough this and Niteblooded's issue prompted me to test my HDMI port...and it's dead. I don't think that's a coincidence.

Given how severely that gimps resale value, mine's headed back. Shame, Shame. mad.gif

£12 for the service. I will be going mad at them now. I turned it on went close up on a black screen as you do after confirming no dead pixels and i instantly saw them. Yes they are tiny but that is not the point... I've had this one for 8 days now too, so my returns time is now low.. I'm tempted to keep it as i don't really notice them when gaming. A lot are on far sides... Others you only see from certain angles and have to be looking for them specifically to notice... I love the monitor but don't want to enter a lottery... I really need a new monitor right now so it;s super annoying.

Place I bought from is ARIA after a recommendation by a friend.

Reading the service offering on their website, they don't have any wiggle room here, and have clearly failed to provide what you paid for, so hopefully they won't give you any grief and will be very apologetic. Pixels ARE small, remind them of this LOL!

Thanks to the responses here it prompted me to do some more tests, which failed, and then ask my friend to borrow his PC and a DP cable (i.e. I brought my monitor to his place). The first Macbook we tried it on failed. Then on a whim he decided to get a 2nd Macbook (lightnight port to DP). The second one worked! So I asked if I could hook it up to his Win10 PC using my cable and it worked right away.

Brought it back home and sure enough nothing on POST screen so I figured it must be my graphics card. And then it all of a sudden worked when Windows loaded. I'm stumped but whatever it is working and that is all that matters. Now I just gotta cross my fingers and pray it keeps working.

Outside of the initial 2-3 day setup of it not working it looks great. No bad pixels. There is a little silverish blacklight bleed in the corners but not bad at all. Gotta do the dark room, dark screen test to see it. No screen tearing so far and my previous monitor screen teared non-stop in SC2 so loving that. If I didn't have a headache of a long time getting it setup I would say this is a damn awesome buy. But even though I can't be sure it was totally the monitor's fault I still remain skeptical and feel like I should knock on wood right now. But thanks again for the replies!

You faced a software issue. Only way to do is to delete any monitor calibration profiles you may have had in Windows and go to safe mode to reinstall nVidia drivers.

Do you have UEFI BIOS enabled on your motherboard? What about your GPU, is it also UEFI? These settings can cause some headaches if not configured properly.

I grabbed some settings from a review on Amazon. Although everyone has their preference this one looks pretty good to me personally:

40-60 Brightness (Depending on preference) (I personally went with 40)
50 Contrast
120 Saturation

2.2 Gamma
Colour Temp --> User
90 Red Gain
90 Green Gain
100 Blue Gain

Course if I had a calibration tool I'd go with that but these settings seems to work quite well for me.
