Finally bought the EX2780Q and I love it. Something odd happened recently. I’ve been revisiting old games and playing some new ones i’ve been playing for years (GTA Online, Witcher 1, Skyrim). Played for hours and no problems. I go to run Crysis, I go into settings and see it’s still set to my old monitor’s resolution; 1680 x 1050. I go to change the setting to 2560 x 1440. I set the resolution and play for a couple of minutes. I notice performance is kind of bad. Definitely below 60 FPS. All of the sudden the screen turns grey with a weird slow, pulsating light coming from the left. I had to hard reset my PC. I reboot everything is fine. I read that HDR is only supported through 120Hz not 144 apparently after doing some searching. I figured maybe i’m pushing my 960 too hard. I have it going through a new Displayport cable btw. I switch to 120Hz from 144 in the Nvidia Control Panel. The grey screen comes up again. I shut down the display and turn it back on in a desperate attempt to fix it. Surprisingly it actually works. And here I am posting to the forum.
What the hell could have gone wrong? And what’s up with Crysis 1? Oh yeah, and I tried relaunching Crysis 1 and the screen goes grey when it launches from the start. Wtf?
