Unexplained green/red "ghosting"

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

I have been experiencing this strange color blurring on my monitor for a few weeks now and I can't pinpoint the cause. The specs of my computer are listed below. I have not changed any hardware/settings in the last few months and my monitor and GPU have been running fine for over a year and a half. I have include two short videos to display the issue. The issue started around the time I started playing Anthem but I don't believe this has anything to do with it since the problem persists on the outside the game as well.

Have you tested it on a different monitor to isolate things, if not do you have a spare GPU laying around? I would test a different monitor first though to see if the issue persists. If you don't have another monitor try a TV, pretty much all of them by today's standards have and HDMI port and some have Display ports.

I'll try using the HDMI port instead and see what happens. I do have a TV but no spare monitor. I can try ordering another GPU to swap it in. That being said, if it does fix the issue, what should I try to pinpoint the cause with my current setup. Is this a type of ghosting, or is this something else entirely? All the ghosting videos I lookup don't show any color trailing like I'm getting. (Your able to view the videos right?)

Yeah I watched them and my bet is on it being the monitor and not the GPU, but still try it on a spare tv just to make sure it doesn’t do it on that, if it doesn’t then its the monitor or display port at least, if it does its the GPU.

 

Also what you are seeing is not ghosting, ghosting is an artifact caused by a slow response time. As the screen refreshes, the human eye still perceives the image previously displayed causing a smearing or blurring visual effect, not the rainbow thing you see. That could be due to the monitor being on its way out, GPU being on its way out or possibly incorrectly supported color settings that the monitor can’t process set within your graphics driver, i.e. Full RGB vs Limited RGB.

 

Edit: One more thought, have you tried an older graphics driver? Before I retired my R9 290X a few weeks ago Radeon would tend to have a few buggy drivers every now and then, could be something minor like that or sometimes it would disable my overclocks. I would honestly try this one before all else. Make sure you DDU before you do though so no remnants of the current driver make their way to the other driver you try. And if it’s already an older driver try a new one.

Use DDU and reinstall ur video drivers , see if that helps.

Interesting development. I went through my settings on the monitor menu. There were two in the submenu marked FreeSync and Overdriver. I know what Freesync does but it's unclear what the Overdriver does. I disabled Overdriver and it seems to have fixed the issue. I'll have to do further research into these Korean monitors to see what this function is for and what disabling it will do to my refresh rate.
