How to Overclock Your PC Monitor

How to Overclock Your PC Monitor
Views: 10
Why would you want to overclock your monitor from its default 60hz to 75, 100 or even 200hz? The main reason is smoothness in gaming. Hz (hertz) denotes the refresh rate of your monitor, and increasing it will increase the number of fps (frames per second) your screen’s capable of depicting, with each extra Hz corresponding to an extra frame, so a 100hz monitor will be capable of capturing 100fps.

Color calibrating screen on a dual monitor system

Color calibrating screen on a dual monitor system Icon

I am running Windows 10, and trying to calibrate my monitor which is the #1 monitor on a dual monitor setup. I am using the Spyder 4 Express for calibration.

When I put the calibration device on my #1 monitor and go through the calibration process, it saves the new profile, but the new profile does not correct the #1 monitor, it is effecting the color of the #2 monitor.

 

Multi monitor scalling differently with 2K monitor

Multi monitor scalling differently with 2K monitor Icon

I just upgraded to Windows 10 and everything works fine so far. However, Windows 10 let's you scale each monitor differently which was one of the reasons I upgraded instantly since I'm using a 25' 2k Monitor and a 24' 1900x1200 Monitor.

On Windows 8 everything on my 2k Monitor was small but readable but with Windows 10 the icons in the task bar got smaller (everything else is the same) and are now too small for my eyes.

To fix that I scaled the 2k Monitor to 125% (which Windows also recommends) and everything looked perfect until I looked on my other monitor. Windows states that it's still scaled to the recommended 100% but everything except Microsoft Apps gets blurry.

Computer wont boot (even into UEFI/BIOS) after upgrade, no signal to monitor

Computer wont boot (even into UEFI/BIOS) after upgrade, no signal to monitor Icon

After a MSFT Windows automatic patch push, My monitor started not to respond during boot up. Ran some basic troubleshooting for the monitor (Ie: check plugs, check cables, check Video card). They all seemed to work fine and my system booted up normal.

The very next day, cold booted again and monitor did same thing, it was not getting any signal from the computer. Went through the checks, after a little bit of a delay the system finally booted.

I checked my BIOs settings, which were all set up normally. I locked my computer after that and did not turn off the system, my monitor was unresponsive. I re-checked monitor, cables and even replaced the video card. Everything is good except no signal to my monitor.

 

OPEN Applications of the monitor i start them from (Using the taskbar)

OPEN Applications of the monitor i start them from (Using the taskbar) Icon

Example: I use the start menu of the secondary monitor to open an application, that application open on the primary monitor. Is there a way to get that application to open on the monitor I started it from. (Using the Start Button of that monitor) ?

I don't actually get the point of having an extra start menu taskbar on that second monitor if it actually open the application on the primary one instead of the current one. It defeat the purpose of having a Start button on those secondary monitor...

Setting up multiple monitors in Windows 10 is fairly easy and can be done under five minutes. After setting up dual or multi monitor, most users prefer using separate, individual wallpapers for each desktop/monitor/screen.

Monitor is crashing at random times Icon

I've recently installed crossfire on the R9 270X and installed a second monitor. I have a LG 29UM65 which runs fine and a new BenQ XL2411Z with randomly crashes after any amount of time. I don't know if its Windows 10 or the monitor.

 

Monitor/display will not turn off

Monitor/display will not turn off Icon

Using the same settings and programs as in my 8.1 installation. Nothing funny, or game-related running in the background (also tried disabling everything possible). The problem is that the monitor will not turn off, either from the Power/Display power-off options (nothing happens after set time passes), or with a program like ScreenOff and Monitor Off.

Using one of these apps, will start turning the monitor off, but it will turn itself back on automatically almost immediately. Something is interfering but I cannot figure out what. No security software installed (using Defender, tried disabling it). The only way this works as intended, is in Safe Mode.

 

How To Disable Sticky Corners On Windows 10 Dual Monitor Setup

How To Disable Sticky Corners On Windows 10 Dual Monitor Setup Icon
Windows 10 has reasonably good support for a dual monitor setup. It’s possibly the best support Windows has ever had for a dual monitor setup compared to the previous version. Windows also has a super neat feature called Snap that lets you quickly snap windows to either edge of your screen. Couple these two together and you have a problem; users on a dual monitor setup who try to move a window from one monitor to the other by dragging it along the top of the screen are stopped because the window snaps to the edge instead.
