I've been running a multi-monitor setup for a while now, with an ASUS VG248QE 144Hz monitor as my main, and one or more spare monitors as secondary displays. I've set the ASUS monitor to 144Hz without issue in the past, while the other monitors stay at 60Hz.
The other night, Windows wanted to update. I figured it was the usual patch session, so I let it do its thing. However, after restarting my computer, I noticed that my ASUS monitor would only operate at 144Hz if it was the only monitor plugged into the system. When I try to set it higher in the Nvidia control panel, it just reverts back to 60Hz after applying changes. I updated my graphics drivers (though I was only one version behind) and even sought a special ASUS driver for the monitor to resolve the issue, but nothing has worked.
Did Windows recently add a forced refresh rate sync between all monitors recently? If so, that really sucks because I only own one 144Hz monitor.
I've been playing on 144HZ for about a year now. A few days ago I downloaded Windows 10, and still had 144hz. When I woke up today I only get 60hz... That's the only options both on my nvidia and monitor settings.. If I set my native resolution down to 1024x768 I can get 120hz. That looks weird, and I had 144hz on 1920x1080 native resolution yesterday..
I installed Windows 10 and found some apps did not fit the monitor screen (too big). I went in and changed the monitor resolution to a larger size (windows recommended 1920 x 1080) but I tried something larger, and now the monitor has a black screen with a little box moving around which says "input not supported". Not being able to use that monitor to go in and change it back, I hooked up a flat screen t.v. which worked but Windows only showed the current monitor size (which was smaller than the original monitor.
I tried the monitor on another computer I have also running Windows 10 and it worked fine. It shows the resolution as 1920 x 1080. When I plugged it back into the original computer I get the same plack screen with "input not supported" so I can't change it there. I suspect the issue is with the registry somewhere in Windows 10 on the first computer, but what the problem is. I've been working on this for a whole day now. You can probably tell I'm not well versed in computer technology. I just want my old monitor back (Acer K272HL) and I promise I won't mess around with it again.
I'm using Amd radeon graphics, windows 10, of course, but the problem is that i unleashed my change-settings-see-what-happends power and i changed my graphic cards resolution a little too high... And now i only get the error screen 'resolution too high, change it to 1280x1024■60fps'.
But i cant do that if I'm unable to login to my desktop. And actuallt i DID reach safe mode trough F8 but i screwed it, I changed the resolution in system settings, cuz i could not reach the graphic driver... so i restarted my computer without any profit, and now i can't get back to safe mode either...
I recently got a new monitor, an Eizo EV2750, which Windows only recognizes as a generic PnP monitor.
I've tried connecting it thorugh DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI without any luck. The often mentioned sollution, to unlplug everything and wait 10 minutes, does not work either.
The graphics card seems to read the EDID however, as in nVidia control panel it displays correctly as EV2750. Same thing with other applications, like DisplayCAL which I use as my color management system.
Seems like it's only an issue with Windows. This issue, however, also means that I can't get full functionality from the monitor. For instance, the ambient light sensor does not work (which is typical when Windows doesn't recognize the display properly).
So recently I upgraded to windows 10 at the same time I got a 4k display.When I set the display scaling to 150% on my main 4k monitor and ensuring that the scaling stays at 100% on my other two 1080p monitors, the entire chrome application is blurry when viewing on the 1080 monitors, and I cannot seem to fix this. Other applications seem to be okay.
Furthermore after the scaling change, some icons on my 1080 monitor's desktop get larger, as if some scaling is applied to them. Is there any solution to this? At the moment I have had to set the scaling back to 100% on my main monitor in order to use chrome on the smaller monitors.
I just installed Windows 10. Now my laptop monitor won't work - only the external monitor. I go to Graphic setting and click on multiple displays, but it states it doesn't see another device only the external monitor. Tried disconnecting the external monitor and rebooting, but the laptop display still doesn't turn on.
MSI R9 390 GPU AMD Catalyst version 15.7.1 Main monitor is CrossOver QHD270 via Dual Link DVI Second display is a Vizio TV via HDMI/DisplayPort
So I was messing around with a 3 display setup for the first time today, one monitor (DVI) and two TVs (one HDMI, one DisplayPort). Everything worked okay, and I could unplug one TV, but when I unplugged the second TV, my monitor went to a black screen. As soon as I plugged the TV back in, the monitor started working again. The main monitor I use every day is now completely dependent on a TV I occasionally use as a second display to be plugged in to function. When I turn on the computer with just the monitor plugged in, I can see the BIOS load up, and the first Windows 10 logo, but as soon as the password screen should be shown, the screen goes black. I tried uninstalling my graphics drivers. When the drivers were completely uninstalled, the monitor functioned normally, but as soon at AMD Catalyst Control Center was reinstalled, it went black until the TV was plugged back in. I've tried plugging the TV up through HDMI and DisplayPort, it makes no difference. Also, my monitor is listed as the main display in both CCC and Windows 10 display settings. Every once in a while when I unplug the TV, the Monitor will get darker and slowly fade to black instead of going straight to black.
I have a PC, and have been using Windows-7 until today, when I started using the free Windows-10 instead. One huge problem is that Windows-10 changed all my documents to "Read-Only." (Regarding my documents, I use "Microsoft Office Word 2007," which has been working great, and I use it daily!) What can I do to fix this situation?
I just got Windows 10 and installed it last night. When I go into certain programs, my fonts have changed. It changed the default fonts of certain programs to Linkin (it's a custom font I've installed.) For example, the default font for Steam has changed to it. It's real annoying, and I'd like to find a way to fix it.
How it changed, but I want it back to normal where I have to double click to open a file. Everything is now a hyperlink and I use a wireless keyboard with a touchpad rather than a separate mouse and I am constantly opening files by mistake. Even files I place on the desktop are all hyperlinks.
My wife's laptop auto updated to Windows 10 last week and everything had been working perfectly until yesterday. Suddenly her desktop/start menu reverted from the new Windows 10 start menu to the old Windows 8.1 desktop. I did some searching and supposedly if you go through control panel, appearance, taskbar and start menu properties there should be a start menu tab where you select which one you want. That tab doesn't exist on her machine or mine for that matter.
I was recently browsing the internet (on windows 10) when suddenly it crashes then restarts. Instead of restarting fully it did a disk analysis. It restarted a few times when doing this scan but eventually it finished. When restarting it brought up a completely new desktop picture and had no password. This was completely different to mine. When going onto the desktop there was no taskbar, no recycling bin, but only 4 small white buttons in the bottom right corner. These buttons consist of language, wireless connection, ease of access? and power. None of these buttons seem to do much if nothing. In ease of accses there is a tab saying on screen keyboard and when clicked nothing happens. You cannot right click on the desktop either!
I upgraded to Win 10 with 2 computers and my WIFI network worked with my printers and even a third computer not at that time upgraded. Yesterday I upgraded the third computer to Win 10.
I noticed that the name shown for my WIFI network was changed on the computers after another update on the software. Now I cannot get to my printer on my WIFI networks!
I called forWin 10 support and aafter waiting 1 1/2 hours goot to talk to a live person who told me they would charge me for fixing the problem! I told him that I had not installed, changed anything and he said it must be in my computer and they wanted to charge me - they were not "forcing me" I asked to talk to a supervisor and he gave me a number to call that went to a OLD peoples health support number!
I am using Windows 10. Am having problem with Active Windows changed to other window automatically. For eg. Lets say am using Microsoft Word and Micro Excel and I am working on Microsoft Word. Then suddenly application changes itself to excel.
I then have to press alt+tab or mouse to change application again. It's bloody annoying. Just writing this much small threat, 3 time active windows changed. So practically it is impossible to type long letters or any typing work.
Also am browsing and reading something and then windows changed automatically. it's bloody annoying.
Also if suppose there is only 1 active window, for eg word then it tried to change itself to desktop but since word is in full screen format, word kept open itself but become non-active. So suppose am typing anything then nothing will type and i have to retype everything again.
On the log-in screen the language is English, but AFTER I log in to Windows, the default INPUT language is Bulgarian, although English is the default one in Language Preferences. How can I change it to English?
WIN10 update from WIN8.1 converted all my .jpg format photos to .mix format items, which I can NOT open or access. My "new" WIN10 operating system will not even recognize the .mix format for conversion. I cannot restore to WIN8.1 as I am pretty sure the .mix files will not restore back to the original .jpg. Photos are part of family genealogy collection.
WIN10 has also corrupted a number of my resident applications, in that they run much slower, and it keeps wanting me to use 1-DRIVE and I-CLOUD for storage which I do NOT, repeat do NOT, want to do.
I just noticed a lot of music in my collection was not downloading, when trying to manually download any "steaming" albums in my collection I get an error saying "Couldn't download to your library. Your library doesn't contain any folders that are not associated with a cloud storage service"
I don't recall having this issue before, but I'm pretty sure its because my profile's Music folder is stored in OneDrive. Does this mean we must have two music folders now? One for music stored in OneDrive, and another local-only folder for music downloaded from our collection?
