    G-Sync issue with XG32VQR

    Hi,

    I recently bought the XG32VQR , a FreeSync 2 display, which should work with G-Sync. But I've run into an issue with G-Sync, it constantly stops working, and it's really hard to get it working again. I'm using NVIDIAs G-Sync Pendulum demo to verify if it's working or not.

    Example: I turn on the computer, start up steam, chrome and my usual apps, I try the G-Sync demo and it works. Then I start something else, it could be anything: another chrome window, spotify, uplay Star Citizen, whatever - it then stops working.

    I try turning G-Sync off and on again, 9/10 times it doesn't help... it could even stop working just by tabbing between different windows.

    Super frustrating...

    Anyone else run into a similar problem and know how to fix? I have the latest NVIDIA + monitor drivers...

    Thanks!

    If yes, when it happens, if you turn off the monitor via the power button and you turn it back on, does everything work properly ?
    Thanks for the response,
    sorry, I should've been clearer:

    It's the G-Sync that stops working, at least according to the Pendulum demo and the NVIDIA setting that shows a G-Sync ON message.

    So the screen doesn't go black or anything. I just stop getting the G-Sync on message and the demo show G-sync off

    On your NVCP > Display > Set up G-Sync :

    - Check the box "Enable for windowed & full screen mode (if it is not already the case)
    - Check the box "Enable settings for the selected display model" (if it is not already the case)
    Yes, those boxes are already checked.

    Could it be that I have a 2nd monitor as well? that I use for temp monitoring, discord etc.

    The 2 are connected to a ROG Strix 1080 Ti OC, the XG32VQ via DP (DisplayPort) and the other via HDMI.
    I'm at work rn so can't check, but I think my secondary monitor is registered as a "generic monitor" by the system, for some reason.
    But it's a 24" 60hz monitor. Connected to my 1080Ti Poseidon via HDMI, the XG32VQR uses DP.

    No other NVCP settings somewhere that could be the issue?

    Pretty sure I have it disabled on the monitor, but don't know if there's a windows setting that has it on. But I'm not using it no. I can double check when I come home.

    I'm not using it because it's way to dark to my liking.
