How to Overclock Your PC Monitor
What's wrong... Please write below.
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.
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.
Every time I reboot, my Generic PnP Monitor is disabled. In order to get my monitor calibration software to work, I have to go into Device Manager and enable the Generic PnP Monitor.
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.
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...
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.
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.
