[Official] ASUS RoG Swift PG348Q Owners Club - Page 182

post #1811 of 3542
So newegg have processed my new monitor after. Verifying RMA. I'm hoping this one was as good as my last as the only issue I had with it was dead pixels.

Will see soon awaiting it's arrival, for what it's worth I only had 3 dead pixels , they replaced it without question. Fingers crossed.

Can't test it properly yet as I'm planning on getting a 980ti tomorrow


Whats the best way to test for backlight bleeding?


So I have tested the screen at 100hz 1440p and it's amazing!
Wow from having played all my life at max 60hz to this is like two different worlds.
I have no coil whine and no issues at all 100hz, no scanlines.

Super happy with this overall. April 2016 manufacture date

One thing I've noticed was that when the monitor went into deep sleep the gpu would lose track of what display resolution it was supposed to be in. This confused windows about what to do with the desktop display, and it would shrink any open windows into a cluster at the top left corner and rearranged my icons. Coming out of sleep would set the display back to full resolution okay, but the desktop was still left in disarray. I finally realized that I had to disable the deep sleep option to avoid the annoyance of fixing it every time.

I've had this issue on other monitors and it turned out to be a windows configuration problem. My current monitors (including the 348q) dont do this.

I did two things that seemed to resolve this and let me turn deep sleep back on again.

Right click on the desktop select View and uncheck Align Icons To Grid. (Auto arrange was already off because I use a cluster arrangement to group similar subjects) This took care of the icon shuffle that had been occurring.

Using Regedit, find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers\Configuration and in the entry that starts with SIMULATED change the key values for ActiveSize.cx, and ActiveSize.cy to 3440 and 1440. This takes care of the windows being jammed into the upper left corner.

This SIMULATED display entry is what Windows uses when you disconnect all monitors to run a computer as a server for example. It defaults to minimum pixel dimensions since Microsoft assumed the server would not want to tie up memory for outputting video it won't be displaying.

We'll, it seems the icons are staying in place, but the windows are still getting jammed up into the top left corner. More research required...

Keep up the good work major! It's very annoying having them all grouped up in the corner like that especially when you have many windows open all the time.

It was operator error. The SIMULATED entry has two sub key sets, and I had only set one of them to 3440 x 1440. once I had modified the second one it works as it should.

What does the deep sleep setting do?

It's part of the Energy Star power saving standard. In the past many electronic devices would continue to draw a fair bit of power even when they were essentially inactive. For CRT monitors that would have been keeping the tube warmed up even when the screen was not displaying anything (black) so it could instantly turn on again. I'm not sure what the equivalent would be for an LCD, but evidently if it's not in deep sleep the monitor continues to burn energy as it waits for an image to display again. With deep sleep the only thing running is a low power circuit that is listening for the wake-up signal.
