Sorry if it's been mentioned recently, I don't really want to trawl through 500 pages - I just saw this problem earlier for the first time after owning the monitor for about a week. Wondering whether it's an intermittent thing that effects all monitors under particular settings, or just some.
My settings at the time were running at 144hz in Nvidia control panel, although I checked and it was set to overclock to 165hz on the monitor itself (it read that it was running at 144hz though). Will wait and see whether I see it again, turning the monitor off and on again seems to fix it. Some users on that forum were reporting it happening when they have ULMB set.
Basically the Acer rep has said it is fixed with a firmware upgrade that you will actually need to send the monitor in for. He has also said it isn't at risk of damaging the monitor if you decide against the firmware route.
Currently running with overclock off at 144hz. Will continue to report back if this interests anyone...
Yes I've experienced this MINOR bug with all three PG279Q's and my first Acer XB271HU.
With the Acer in fact I saw the issue THE VERY FIRST TIME I plugged it in via HDMI to compare with the Asus #3, so it was @ 60hz.
If I'm not mistaken it's a problem with the G-Sync module firmware, I'm not sure if you can get it to happen with G-Sync off. It should happen to everybody sooner or later (it probably happens more frequently with certain GPUs, who knows).
In any case, the fix is VERY EASY, I think you can do any of these:
- Get in and out of fullscreen (games, madVR video renderer exclusive fullscreen, etc.)
- Change refresh rate
- Turn the monitor off and back on
It's really pretty random, sometimes you can get it several times an hour and others you don't get it for a whole day. I think it depends how much you change refresh rate or enter/exit fullscreen content.Edited by EXPERIMENTONGOD - 6/16/16 at 10:11am
