A Reminder To All Those With Strange Monitor Issues!


PCSarge

Recommended Posts

your monitor has firmware updates just like your BIOS has updates on your motherboard, if you are having strange connection loss issues or anything

 

UPDATE YOUR MONITOR FIRMWARE

 

i just walked someone through this process before he drove 2 hours to bring me his GPU for testing.

 

his monitor was 6 firmware versions behind. he did an update to it and has had no issues since!

 

i know i sound like a broken record, but alot of us forget these things as we go about our daily lives.

 

and yes, i know not all cheaper monitors offer it, but usually anything over $500 does

I have never thought to update a monitor firmware. I will have to learn how to do it. I have a Dell SE2717 that is freesync. 48-75hz I think. But I managed to OC the monitor and increase the range to 45-81hz. Think a firmware update might improve that?

firmware updates for monitors usually solve latency/connection issues. image quality and color accuracy. overclockingi  cant say. but you may get more accurate picture and in rare cases better response times

I did install new firmware for my M28U when I purchased it, but I haven't checked since.  Thank you for the reminder.

I never thought about this...

I'll take a look at all the monitors I use, if I don't forget it 😂
