RE: Strobelight - LightBoost Utility for AMD/ATI and NVIDIA
Okay, I've completely run out of ideas on how to get this working. Every time I get the same error upon initializing, "No compatible displays found." Not once have I seen the Lightboost option available on the OSD (remains grayed out no matter what I do).
  • Windows 7 x64
  • GeForce 660 Ti (EVGA)
  • Asus VG248QE

I have tried all of the following:
  • GeForce Experience installed vs. uninstalled
  • DVI-D vs. Displayport
  • 3D Vision installed vs. uninstalled
  • 334.89 driver vs. 327.23 driver vs. 335.23 driver
  • Strobelight Beta 4 vs. Strobelight Beta 4 swapped vs. CRU method vs. EDID method
  • NVIDIA Pixel Clock Patcher (grasping at straws here)
  • DisplayFusion Pro enabled vs. disabled
  • Have another person verify that I am installing this according to instructions

I have NOT tried but am considering the following, although I'd strongly prefer not to have to resort to this:
  • Reinstalling Windows 7
  • Installing Windows 8

Debug info is the same every time, save for the number of passes:
[2014-03-12 00:00:31.485] LOAD(AMD): LoadLibrary("atiadlxx.dll") = ERROR 126
[2014-03-12 00:00:31.485] LOAD(AMD): LoadLibrary("atiadlxy.dll") = ERROR 126
[2014-03-12 00:00:31.488] LOAD(NVIDIA): NvAPI_Initialize() = SUCCESS
[2014-03-12 00:00:31.689] INIT(NVIDIA, 0, 20): 3D = FALSE
[2014-03-12 00:00:31.890] INIT(NVIDIA, 0, 20): VENDOR = 0x06 (ASUS compatible)
[2014-03-12 00:00:31.890] INIT(NVIDIA, 0, 20): Initializing display 1...
[2014-03-12 00:00:54.383] INIT(NVIDIA, 0, 20): DELAY = 40
[2014-03-12 00:00:54.383] INIT(NVIDIA, 0, 20): PASSES = 274
[2014-03-12 00:00:54.984] INIT(NVIDIA, 0, 20): 3D = FALSE
[2014-03-12 00:00:54.988] INIT: No compatible displays found.

Other notable issues:
  • When the "strobed" refresh rate is enabled (despite strobelight failing to initialize) there are significant artifacts present, most notably on darker colors/blacks and along the edges of the screen (see images [1] [2])
  • Normal function is restored by changing to a non-strobed Hz or by resetting the monitor in strobelight-setup.exe. However, unplugging and plugging back in has no apparent effect.
  • This issue is also present after installing the override .inf file

Might this be a problem with the monitor itself? It seems unable to get any 3D signal. I'm at the end of my rope!! Any help would be immensely appreciated.
