    Tried everything! Random shutdowns and black screens - Need help!

    DDR4 RAM can pass tests most of the time and still be bad. If you have two sticks, try one stick at a time and use the computer normally. I wouldn't be surprised if one of the sticks if bad.

    Your 1440p Monitor Could Be Using a 4K Panel

    What monitors do this? I doubt this is true. If any monitor did this, it would be obvious and people would be complaining.

    Is Chrome brighter (targeting lower than 2.2) compared to win10 viewer or other browsers?

    The problem is Lagom's images have embedded sRGB profiles, and sRGB uses linear gamma for the darkest shades (it's not 2.2). Chrome displays sRGB images correctly if your monitor is calibrated and assigned the proper color profile. Lagom has the images without color profiles embedded here...

    AMD Eyefinity HDMI Freesync Question (Variable Refresh Test?)

    Make sure to set the refresh rate to 75 Hz before running the demo. FreeSync is capped at whatever the current refresh rate is, so if the refresh rate is set to 60 Hz, you will be limited to 48-60 Hz. If you can't set the refresh rate to 75 Hz with the adapters, try my pixel clock patch...

    AMD Eyefinity HDMI Freesync Question (Variable Refresh Test?)

    Make sure the fps is within the FreeSync range. You can set a custom fps range in the demo. The SE2717H is only 48-75 Hz, so it doesn't even support LFC to handle less than 48 fps.

    AMD Eyefinity HDMI Freesync Question (Variable Refresh Test?)

    The Pendulum demo works with FreeSync. The demo doesn't have an option for FreeSync, but FreeSync will work if it's enabled in Radeon Settings. If FreeSync is working, there won't be any tearing with "No VSync" selected. This is more noticeable with the bars test pattern.

    miniDP > DVI-D adapter: 2560x1600 @60HZ

    The $10 Monoprice adapter is definitely not dual-link. It only happens to work at 2560x1440 @ 60 Hz with some monitors that accept out of spec single-link DVI signals. This one should work at 2560x1600 @ 60 Hz with dual-link DVI...

    Acer XR341CK Freesync owners thread

    Make sure to include the range limits using the "Edit..." button at the top. You can also edit the FreeSync range that way. CRU 1.2.5 now includes the range limits by default if the min/max horizontal values match and certain conditions required for FreeSync are met in the default EDID...

    what could cause such blurry text at 2560x1600?

    Does the text look like this? That would mean the monitor is only receiving one of the links in a dual-link signal. That can happen if you're using a single-link DVI cable, but you said the same cable and video cards work with the ZR30W, so the Z30i might be defective. This would not be...

    Eyefinity dual monitors and DVI splitter

    A splitter would just send the same signal to both monitors. My driver patch will allow 2560x1440 @ 60 Hz to work over single-link DVI and HDMI if the monitor can handle that: http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-AMD-ATI-Pixel-Clock-Patcher

    LG L246WP 24" display shifted to the left Nvidia 8.15.11 driver- EVGA GTX 260

    This is a really old thread. The original fix just disables the extension block. This is easy to do now with CRU. http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-Custom-Resolution-Utility-CRU Simply choose "Custom extension block" and click OK. Then reboot and it should be fixed.

    Monoprice announces 2560x1600 120Hz IPS

    I got this monitor yesterday. It's not overclockable at all. It skips frames at anything higher than 60 Hz on all inputs and has one frame of lag at 60 Hz. I'm working on a review, but it's not complete. You can see the frame skipping and lag results here...

    Mac External Display Problems

    You said the display is not properly rendering text/images, but the only example you showed is one site displaying a different icon, which is obviously not a monitor issue. The site is probably just choosing the icon based on the screen resolution. What rendering problems are you having?

    Adjusting color via drivers vs monitor

    With NVIDIA, yes. With AMD, no. AMD uses a higher precision lookup table and temporal dithering to emulate more shades, which is why you don't see any banding. That depends on the monitor. Some monitors also do temporal dithering, while others will just duplicate shades and cause banding. If...

    Yellow tint on AMVA monitor

    The setting in Catalyst Control Center doesn't mean anything. If you were to get a color calibration device and calibrate both monitors to 6500K, they would look closer to the BenQ. If you were to calibrate them to 9300K, they would look closer to the laptop panel. You would have to reduce the...

    Dell P2414H

    It should be the opposite. The "LCD reduced" option in CRU should work with more monitors at 70-77 Hz than the automatic option in the NVIDIA control panel. NVIDIA's automatic option is not the same as the automatic options in CRU. If anything, it's more like CRU's manual option because it...

    Attention Eizo EV2736 Owners. Does your input signal match your resolution?

    Chances are the monitor is reporting the correct resolution and that the video card is scaling. The video driver will always add certain resolutions like 1680x1050 even if it's not listed in the monitor's EDID, and the video card will scale any resolutions that aren't listed in the EDID to the...

    Help me to understand Flickering...

    LCDs don't flicker from the refresh rate, but the PWM might be tied to a multiple of the refresh rate. I think the Dell U2311H does 180 Hz PWM at 60 Hz, so it might do 225 Hz PWM at 75 Hz.

    input lag

    Lag doesn't fluctuate. It's the testing methods that are flawed. If lag fluctuated like that, there would be obvious jitter. Neither of those sites did a proper test for that monitor. It's likely that monitor has no lag at all other than pixel response times, or if there is lag, it's probably no...

    ASUS/BENQ LightBoost owners!! Zero motion blur setting!

    I don't know if I should get the VG248QE or the XL2420T. My main concern about the VG248QE is the low gamma at higher refresh rates. I hate washed out gamma more than anything, and the TN gamma shift is just going to make that worse. I need a darker gamma to compensate for that. Adjusting the...
