Re: Broken Monitor - Damaged DisplayPort Socket

Update: The monitor has been tested with a new VESA-certified 2m DisplayPort cable on two different computers, with the exact same issue. System goes as far as to detect its name and identify it as a G-sync capable display, but any attempts to save any stock or custom configuration fail. Nothing oth...

Re: New term: "Frame Rate Amplification" (1000fps in cheap G

Thank you for the in-depth explanations! It took me a while to read over this slowly, but am I glad that I cancelled the order on a 240hz Zowie for now. Looks like more goodies are coming soon! Although I feel like I should clarify something: By "frame time" I did not mean image persistence. I meant...

Re: New term: "Frame Rate Amplification" (1000fps in cheap G

I have just stumbled upon an old article, touching upon the non-linearity of FPS values: https://www.mvps.org/directx/articles/fps_versus_frame_time.htm https://www.mvps.org/directx/articles/images/fps_ve1.gif If I understand the logic correctly, the jump from generating 240FPS (~4.17ms) to 1000FPS ...

Re: Broken Monitor - Damaged DisplayPort Socket

I assumed the GPU side was fine, because the monitor did not work for the guy who originally tried to fix it for me either... although he was using either my HDMI-DisplayPort adapter, or an untested 20 pin cable which were apparently notorious for not working with Acer Monitors. You may just have fo...

Re: Broken Monitor - Damaged DisplayPort Socket

Having taken apart the monitor, I see no immediate flaws in the mainboard: https://imgur.com/a/bKPKJ The monitor powers on, displays the Acer welcome screen and can even be detected as a G-sync capable display as well as identified by both the Windows Display Setting configuration and the Nvdia Cont...

Thanks very much for the quick response, this sort of information is hard to come across! I'll open it up and have a closer look at the DisplayPort socket and decide what to do next.

Broken Monitor - Damaged DisplayPort Socket

Hello, My Acer XB240HA (144hz G-sync) display has stopped working after pulling out the DisplayPort cable too forcefully. It still shows up as a potential display, but no settings can be saved with any computer configuration, leading me to believe that the some of the DisplayPort's sockets are broke...

Re: XL2546 vs. XL2540? Which should I get?
