    Unhappy PG278Q fullscreen failure

    Hey guys,

    got my new PG278Q yesterday and having a pretty major issue with it, in 144hz mode (not properly tested in other modes yet). From first use it's having a spectacular (full screen artifacting) failure whenever i fullscreen a browser window.

    After a couple of instances I updated my (AMD) video drivers and it went away, and it played a game perfectly for around an hour... until i rebooted the PC.

    The card is a 7970 Ghz Edition, mildly overclocked, watercooled. I've never used the displayport before, so I'm wondering if it might be the card. Interestingly, when i press the power button the PC shuts down normally and the artifacting disappears.

    Both GPU and VRMs are all running cool when the failure happens (45/55C respectively).

    Just wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction to fix this, or if I should be looking at RMAing the screen. Thanks!

    In case it helps anyone, i fixed this.

    All you need to do is enable "Unofficial overclocking mode: without PowerPlay support" in MSI Afterburner
