  1. This is the exact error I get when I try boot into Windows
  2. It’s coming up with the HDD having unpredictable fail when I turn the pc on and can’t even load into the operating system or bios. I know they make noises when the disk is spinning but this noise that I’m experiencing isn’t normal. All I want to know is whether it’s my motherboard causing the issue because the sata cable connected to the hard drive from the motherboard is brand new and so is the hard drive itself but I can’t even boot into windows because the pc thinks there’s an issue with the hard drive.
  3. Hello, I have been having issues with my PC recently specifically the hard drive. I replaced the sata cable after the hard drive came up with imminent failure and unpredictable fail and it fixed it for a while. Then I came onto my pc one day and it came up with the same error so I changed the cable again and moved it to another sata port on the MoBo and it still didn’t work. Today I replaced my psu and all the sata, pcie, cpu, gpu and 24 pin cables and also replaced the hard drive with the same model but brand new with a new sata cable. I turned my pc on before and it’s still coming up with the same error when trying to boot into my OS even though my OS is on my M.2. I have taken a video but I can’t post it here because it’s a maximum or 20MB. The hard drive also makes a horrible scraping sound when I turn on the pc like the disk is trying to spin and then stops because it can’t. It makes the exact same noise every time I turn the pc on. Could this be an issue with my MoBo’s sata ports? Because everything else was brand new and I’m still getting this error. Any help would be amazing as I’m literally going mental. Thanks again.
  4. I already posted images?
  5. Hi guys, I’m just wondering if this looks like a HDR issue or not? I’m also unsure where to post about this and if it’s a monitor issue or the games implementation of HDR. I’ve taken pictures of HDR on and then SDR in AC Odyssey and for some reason in the blue fire there’s bits of green. But in SDR there’s no problem at all. I’m using the Acer Predator X27P which is HDR 1000 with 1000 luminance and 80 paper white. The first two images is with HDR and the other is without.
  6. Do you have DP YCbCr sRGB enabled whilst HDR is on? I don’t even know what this setting does. When I turn it off it doesn’t seem to change anything.
  7. I’m using the ASUS ROG RTX 2080 Ti not an AMD card. I just wish that my monitor was working the same way it was when I got it because I wasn’t having these issues until today. I thought that my monitor had an issue when using HDR. Also I don’t think it will carry over from SDR to HDR because it locks most of my OSD picture settings when I enable HDR so it must be doing its own thing.
  8. How are you able to adjust your brightness to 140 nits whilst having HDR enabled in windows? Whenever I try to adjust my nits in the OSD it just says “this function is not available” and by default when I turn on HDR in windows it sets itself to 80 nits. When I turn off HDR in windows though I am able to adjust the nits for SDR content.
  9. I just realised what you actually said. That it happens when in full screen mode with windows HDR enabled. I thought you was suggesting to play in full screen borderless, my bad.
  10. Okay thanks I have been paranoid that I just bought this monitor and all of a sudden I start seeing this in the sample image. I was playing in HDR on full screen the entire time with it turned on in windows and I wasn’t getting this before. I would try full screen borderless because I have two monitors but HDR on AC becomes unavailable. Also when you say to adjust the HDR without it being enabled in windows do you mean the peak white nits option in the OSD? One more thing I have noticed as well is when I move into a darker area on the game such as a cave and then look at the reference image it gets rid of most of the weird image but keeps one tiny pink dot on one of the clouds.
  11. Hi guys, I just recently got an Acer Predator X27P and I have had it for two weeks now with zero issues and no defects that I have noticed. I have been playing AC Odyssey in HDR at 98hz and I had zero issues and everything seemed to look how it was supposed to even in the picture for HDR where you set up the luminance and paper white. Then today I went onto the game and have noticed this weird set of pink pixels in the HDR setup picture. So I restarted the game and went back to the HDR setup again and the image was back to normal with no issues but looked a bit dull. Then I went into the game and looked again and the pink and blue pixels appeared again. The sun also looked weird compared to before as well. I have checked for stuck pixels on my desktop and there is none. I tried changing the DisplayPort cable to a brand new one and the same thing is also happening. I reset the monitor to its default OSD settings as well. I literally haven’t changed anything to do with the monitor or it’s settings since the day I got it after I set it up apart from the ambient lighting and turned on auto black level. One thing that I think may have broken it though was the other night when there was a thunderstorm and I turned the monitor and my setup off and then unplugged the extension lead from the wall and then plugged it back in the next day once the storm had passed and the monitor turned on straight away with my other monitor even though I had turned them off before I unplugged. I think that may have caused this to happen but I am probably wrong. Either that or the game has something wrong with its HDR but like I said the past weeks I haven’t noticed any problems like that. Sorry if this is quite long I just thought I’d explain everything. Please look at the pictures I have put to see what I am on about. I also verified the game files to see if it would fix anything but it didn’t. Edit: I am going to add some pictures of how it should look when I load up into the start menu of the game before continuing into story mode where it messes up. If you look in the first two images you can see that everything looks wrong compared to the last two images. Any answer as to what you think may be wrong would be very helpful. Thanks
  12. Yeah I was worried about the fact I couldn’t use the new Xbox Series X with either of my pc monitors unless I played in 1080p and even then I wouldn’t be taking advantage of the Series X, but I am thinking about getting an LG OLED for the Series X so I can enjoy it from my bedroom if I want to play on that.
  13. I really am swaying towards the Ultrawide just so I can give it a go because I have never tried it before and it seems to be less risky than buying the 27 inch models and having them annoy me a year down the line due to the fan. Plus people keep saying to me how immersive they are compared to a 27 inch and it is mainly SP games that I want to use this monitor for. Do you think it will be alright to have a dual monitor setup with this ultrawide such as my PG279Q? I would use the PG279Q just to play competitive games because I prefer a smaller screen for it.
  14. Is there a particular reason why the x27 is better than the PG27UQ?
  15. I know the projection is stupid really but I do like the logo on the wall. I think it would look good with the led strips along my desk. And thanks for the information. Also the reason why I spoke about the RMA process with the PG27UQ and not the ultrawide is because I have heard issues with the fan on it whereas the ultrawide I have only heard one issue which was the flickering and scan lines which has already been sorted. So I don’t think I would need to RMA that monitor if I looked after it. If it comes with dead pixels I can just send it back to the place I buy it from.
