    Is this normal or not? ^^ PG279Q

    Hey guys'n girls, i have this very strange thing with my PG279Q that whenever i start the monitor, for the first 2-5 minutes i can see the pixels very clearly... .. and efter the monitor got "warmer" it kinda melt in more and it looks fine... it's even worse if i start a game and it's put under load for the first minutes and the monitor is "cold" as i see it xD

    it's like you can see a pixel and a smallsmallsmal white space between next pixel... and this is over the whole screen.. like they not melt together...

    but after about 5 minutes this is all gone and the picture is clear as it should..

    is this normal and why does this happen? i have the latest driver update aswell so... basicly i do not know what to do next ^^

    Please help me! <3

    just tried to have it in standby for like 30 min untill it got cold again... and now it's the same.. seeing pixels... and as i said, if i'm in a game... it gets worse when i move, when i'm standing still and the picture aint moving it gets better... but when i move again it comes back... it's like instead of being a good smooth color, you can see small small small pixels.. =/ and it almost looks abit faded at a point.. but as i said earlier.. after like 5 min.. everything is perfect and it never comes back.. untill the screen gets "cold" again... because if it's warm and i turn it off and back on... it is still fine ^^

    Doesn't sound normal, this is the first time I've heard of this. Can you take a picture/record a video?

    Is the room really hot, really cold, or really damp and humid?

    Sounds like something wrong with the logic board or the power module. Usually dead or dying caps, a problem which is likely to get worse over time.

    Sounds like an RMA unless it's out of warranty and you can arrange the repair yourself.
