Asus VG259QM stuck on 60Hz on windows

Post by Nen » 26 Apr 2020, 14:24

In windows, it doesn't let me go above 60Hz. It does show 280Hz as an option but after applying it goes back to 60Hz.
I installed the driver from Asus website and I use the included DP cable.
Tried reinstalling GPU drivers,replugging the DP cable,restarting the computer..

Anyone have a clue to what might be the problem?
Thanks.

Ok, it seems like I fixed it.
The cause was CRU. There were traces left from my older monitor.
I used the Reset-All file and it fixed it. Was able to see all of the refresh rate range on windows afterwards.

Select refresh rate in nvidia control panel

Well, it happened again. Something weird is going on with windows.
I used the reset-all file again and it went back to normal. Maybe windows or my GPU (RX 580) doesn't support 280Hz?
I also have my TV connected to my GPU via HDMI and it keep resetting from duplicate to extend this display.
I will try to get a certified DP cable and test.
