Anyone ever use Linux on this panel? Its pretty hard to get everything to be the right size. You've got too small, or gigantic. I think linux hates 1440p.

I have my Glossy Xstar dusty in the box now. No need for it anymore. She lasted a long time and Oced to 96HZ but the little blue led light flickers.

Ive got a QNIX 2710 That I used for a while with zero issues. I have since been trying to get rid of it since I had to get rid of my desktop, but I cant seem to get it to work for my buddies computer. Rather, he cant seem to get it to work. He tried a DVI - HDMI cable, and also a DVI - DVI, cable, though im not 100% sure if its a DVI-D cable or not. He is using Windows 10 and says that it recognizes that a device was connected but wont let him install the driver. Any thoughts?

Do you mean he can't install GPU driver or the modded qnix monitor driver?

If the latter you disable driver verification in start up settings in Windows.



Regardless the monitor should work out of the box

If you

I have a question for fellow QX2710 owners here. Mine died yesterday, and I'm wondering if it's something inside the monitor that went bad or the power switching adapter. The indicator light on the power switching adapter does not come on. Is it worth buying a replacement adapter on the chance that that's the issue?

I had a very similar issue with mine about 2 years ago. Thought some of the pcbs died but actually it was the power supply. I replaced it an had no issues since then.

Hello once more-

Here’s my fifth update regarding my three X-Star purchases from September, 2014...Post #21863 on page 2187 of this thread.

https://www.overclock.net/t/1384767/...#post_23169288

After five years of ownership and continuous usage, my three X-Stars are still working just fine...No issues to report...

All three monitors are powered 24/7 at a 96Hz overclock.

OS: Windows 10 Pro v.1903 Build 18362.295
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Classified (x2)

Was there even any permanent solution to the light bleed problem with some of these monitors? The one I have just barely has the issue, but it is there in one of the corners.
