Re: Vertical line defect fixed itself?

Yes, be careful moving around the monitor. The "electronic equivalent of a loose wire" is usually embedded inside the glass or panel so it is not user-fixable, and probably not professionally repairable either. If it happens again, and your warranty is expired, and you have nothing to lose by openi...

Re: Vertical line defect fixed itself?

Temperature changes and panel settling can make a big difference in this kind of borderline defect. That said, a tap on the monitor could also worsen things for this "electronic circuit equivalent of a loose wire" -- so be careful when moving around the monitor. Alright, thanks! I'll be careful. :m...

Re: Vertical line defect fixed itself?

This would probably be a borderline panel defect. One pixel column addressor glitched -- possibly address-line corruption or something similar that caused one vertical pixel row to go all black (zeros) for a single refresh cycle. Noise in address lines or data lines could have caused that to happen...

Vertical line defect fixed itself?

A few months ago I bought an off-brand 4K monitor. It was particularly cheap because it had a visible vertical line defect and it was seemingly a permanent defect. So I thought: "for what I paid for it I can live with it, it's no big deal." But to my surprise, recently this vertical line started to ...

Re: Why are refresh rates "off" by a bit?

With the new GPU, I was trying to downclock the refresh rate of the monitor below 60 Hz - I set it to 59.95 Hz in CRU but the real refresh rate was 59.99 Hz, so it doesn't seem like I can go below that. I tried 60.003 Hz next to get it as close as possible to real 60 and that made the GPU clocks ent...

I can confirm that it works. All I had to do was plug it in and G-SYNC got detected & enabled automatically. :)

It's soooo smoooth! :lol:

Yes, native g-sync works perfectly fine in W7.
That's music to my ears, and actually the monitor just arrived to my door at the same time you posted that comment, but I have to get a couple of things done first before I play with it. :lol: :cry:

Re: Does my monitor not support FreeSync?

I just bought a G-SYNC monitor, but it's the true G-SYNC kind that has the G-SYNC module in it. It will be interesting to see if it works with Windows 7. If anyone knows for sure post a comment below since I don't have the monitor yet (it's supposed to arrive Thu-Fri).
