"You're screen is blurry" when playing video games at 4k even though nothing is blurry at all?

What is this? I did click on "don't do anything and stop bothering me" (or some such) because it *additionally* kept making warning sounds in the background lol... 

 

Just curious, is this somehow avoidable? 

And why does it even happen... it makes no sense... I'm using Nvidia DSR and it's *never* done this when I play at 1440p (down sampled obviously) but 4k is suddenly not ok and "blurry"?? 😂 

 

Anyways everything seems to be okay now, except the icons in the task bar on the right side (where Afterburner, NVCP etc is) is very weird now, like it has the wrong spacing... I checked everything is still set to 1080p (my monitor's resolution) but these icons seem to be displaying like they probably would on a 4K screen, so question is will this go away when I restart (can't right now, uploading video) or can I change it back manually (probably not)?

Also, I'm really curious, why does this even happen? it's of no concern to Windows how I set my GPU's DSR settings lol (and as said it never complained about 1440p) 🤔

I am confused as to what you are doing... you are playing a game at 1440p, with DSR to 4K, on a 1080p monitor?

What are your DSR Factors and Smoothness settings?

What is this

You really need to clarify your questions, long winded with little information isn't going to be helpful solving your problem. 

 

What it sounds like is you have a 1080p screen, were running 1440p Nvidia dynamic super resolution (dsr) and the icons looked alright but now that you have gone to 4k dsr everything is blurry and the spacing is all off. 

 

Windows cares about your resolution because it hass text smoothing, anti aliasing for icons and controls window sizing and scaling of programs. By using Nvidia DSR you are screwing with the way all of that is being displayed. The blur is coming from 4 pixels of colour info being sent to a single display pixel causing windows to choose which pixel data to use. When it's just 1440p there is on a 50%chance windows will pick wrong. 

Your best option is to run 1080p in Windows and use dsr within game settings for supported titles

Ok. 

Game. 

DSR > 4k

 

*everything is working perfectly fine, 60fps*

 

 

*Windows (in the background with additional alarm sound)* > "your screen is blurry, should we fix it?"  [repeatedly, non stop] 

 

it literally makes no sense to me either, but it's what happened - and I'd really like too know why - and what was possibly changed.

I agree and I've never done anything else. 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Ok I get now what is happening... but not why or how to fix it. 

 

So if I play this game (Tekken 7) at 4k dsr resolution, in full screen because I only play in full screen so I haven't tested other options, windows instantly thinks it's set to 4k resolution, even though it isn't, it's still just 1080p because nvidia dsr let's the desktop resolution alone... 

 

 

I only figured that out because when I edit 4k video with built in editor it keeps the 4k resolution, it would usually convert to 1080p, its native resolution no matter what. 

 

And the only way to "fix" it seems to restart windows. 

 

EDIT: while this is really an annoying issue, I think it's kinda funny this gives me a way to edit 4k videos in the photo app, it still converts 60 fps to 30fps, but at least it keeps the resolution! 😄

 

Btw I've decided to just play in 1440p *for now* as the difference isn't that big and this weird scaling issue is just annoying. I still hate that windows even gave me these continuous "false warnings" whoever thought that was a good idea should probably not work with software ever again. (honestly, *if* you already need to give out weird warnings like that maybe one would be enough instead of continously spamming it?)
