Safe mode maybe? I dunno.
Post in a new thread, you'll probably get a better response.
Why would you go from a high quality Phillips monitor that has thousands of pages of support across HardOCP, OCAU and similar forums to a yum char model just to save $250?
When you don't think pages of waffle on forums are worth $250?
Or perhaps when you think the idea of a local replacement when there is an issue is a much better safe guard.
Picking up one of these bad boys this weekend. Anything I need to get beforehand to run it from my GTX780? I've currently got a Displayport cable running my 1440p panel but I'm sure I cheaped out when I bought it - does this matter?
I'm also hoping to mount it on an Ergotron LX arm. I'm assuming I'll need a VESA 100mm to 200mm conversion plate?
Use the DP cable that comes with the monitor, and make sure you set the monitor to DP 1.2 in its settings.
Yes you will need the VESA conversion plate.
Welcome to the club, you'll be blown away....
I was a bit underwhelmed by the 1080 to 1440 upgrade, hopefully this will give me the pixel boner I've been looking for.
Will Windows 7 handle scaling alright or will I finally have to suck it up and move to Win10?
Pixel boner is a good description...
Can't comment about W7 as I'm using W10 but should not be a problem scaling wise.
I use no scaling on mine anyway.... it makes the screen even BIGGER
It's perfectly readable without any scaling.
Windows 7 here. Not scaling anything, at 40" it's the same DPI as a 20" 1080p screen which is fine.
Sweeeet. I've got a pixel semi just thinking about it
I doubt this is an issue with my monitor - but does anyone have any issues with this monitor not waking up after the computer goes into sleep mode
I am sure this is my GPU not sending a signal properly - but in the off chance its my monitor it will help me figure out the cause
I always turn mine off and on at the switch so haven't noticed it, you running single or dual screen?
BTW - i can turn the monitor on and off - still doesn't wake up
I find the whole displayport over HDMI thing annoying as my GPU detects and redetects it as a device.
might be a cable, gpu, driver or seating issue. hard to tell - but I reckon if it was hooked up via HDMI you wouldn't get this - stupid displayport.
Yeah the TV is HDMI and my monitor is DP - its probably that.
I will test it when it happens again and see if the TV has display.
I find that if I leave my second screen on (HDMI) and fiick the Philips off at the power switch it will auto-detect the secondary as the only screen.
Other monitor didn't turn on either (which is HDMI) after going into sleep mode
However, I do have wireless stuff...next time I will try and plug it in and see if it responds to that. It might be the USB?
All good here, never did that for me, but I've somehow worked out to stop it going to sleep.
I'm sure someone in this very thread had the same issue though...?
Christ this thing is insane
