01-09-2015, 05:08 PM
ROG swift monitor .Ok so, there seems to be an andicator of some sort, which is definately from the monitor when i am in fullscreen mode. It looks like a white recycling circle with a diagonal red line on it. I have tried on/off gsync and wiggled with the monitor settings but nothing changed.It is the first time i am seeing this. It was not there when i first booted it up but now it is there in every game. Does anyone know how the heck to get rid of it? Thank you all in advance.

It's looks similar to icons I see temporarily in the lower left, and lower right of my screen. When I play games through STEAM, I'll get notifications in the lower left hand, telling em which games my friends are playing. But that icon is only visible for a few seconds. I also have FRAPS running, with the dispalyed FPS counter running in the lower right. Origin games has a pop up in the lower right, that works like STEAM regardig my friends playing such and such game. Although I can't recall if it's only visiable on the Desktop, or during full screen games.

Perhaps you have some utility/app/game service that is running and that is causing that icon to come on screen?

First of all thank you for taking the time to reply. The thing is though, it is not from an application like these, because i have them and since i got the monitor (today) i have not installed anything new. Also, when i press print screen this indicator does not appear. That means that it is from the monitor and not an output of the computer. But again thank you for the reply.

Your welcome.

Good idea to print screen to figure out it's the monitor displaying it, and not the graphics card.

The red light means G-Sync is active. Otherwise it would be a different color (white, or green, or?). Hmmmm what could it be? Maybe it's an icon that means one of the SWIFT's features is disabled for your current settings? Like maybe ULMB, or something like that? Check the quick reference guide fold out paper, it might have a key for the icons.

I'm at work, and can't look at that information at the moment.

Ok so i switched off g sync to enable ulmb and see if it does anything, but it seems i can not tourn ulmb on even if g sync is off. Maybe the monitor tells me there is something wrong with ulmb? weird.... Or simply too obvius for me to see.... Thanks again. Also i read the quick start guide but it doesnt say anything about it.

NVM the ulmb thing i had the monitor at 144hz where ulmb is unavailable. The "problem" is still there

Well thanks for the help! Something must have went wrong with previous reinstallation of the drivers, bacause after i did the 3rd reinstallation the icon was gone! Cheers and i appreciate vary much that you took the time to reply!
