The white ribbon, you mean? If so, I'll go try reseating it. Hopefully the monitor is easier to open the second time around...

Yes, the cable that connects between the circuit board and the LCD.

Just reseated it and it's still happening. :(

Should I try not sliding it back to lock it? The instructions make no mention of that.

Let me wait for a response from NVIDIA. They are real busy, so a bit slow at replying, but this is important info to find out. :-)

I haven't noticed any rainbow banding on mine, though I haven't tried any games yet. I'm about to boot up Far Cry 3 though.

For the brown connector for the blue-tipped ribbon cable, I followed the instructions in the manual: Use the round end of the prying tool to unlock the connector. After this, I just pushed the cable into it and it popped open really easily.

Hmm, what page is that on? My manual doesn't say anything like that for the ribbon step.

Oh I was using the updated PDF guide since it has some extra information. They tell you to use the rounded end of the prying tool to unlock the connector on step 31.

I was able to produce the rainbow bands on my monitor while testing Far Cry 3. It happened once out of at least 20 various game boots, alt+tabs, and renderer reinitializations due to changing graphics settings.

Bah, I had no idea there was an updated guide. That would have saved a lot of time.

I've mainly been using BF4 and Metal Gear Rising to test the rainbow thing. it happens more often than not.

I had it happen when starting up Saints Row 4 as well. It must be normal.

Okay, here is a GREAT kicker for everyone. Getting my GSync installed now and My monitors are going crazy...

GSync

Dell 24" IPS

It has to be my GPU... SLI GTX 670's. All my connectors are seated properly on the monitor. I've torn it apart twice looking for a problem.

Other than that, I can't get BF4 to launch either. It launches and then goes to 'No Input Detected' and then crashes BF4.
