I followed the instructions but after running Strobelight.exe I've been waiting for about an hour for it to complete the setup (currently over 20,000 passes). I'll assume at this stage that it's gone wrong?

What worries me more is, the first time I tried, I cancelled after about 10,000 passes, tried to uninstall everything but when I turned my PC back on, I can't get all of the monitor modes/refresh rates back. I tried uninstalling it through it's own panel but it still seems to be lingering.

So I guess what I'd like to know is, should the first test take anywhere near this long? Am I right in assuming that this is broken?

And secondly, how do I fully uninstall this and get my monitor back to it's previous modes/refresh rates?

After doing what ToastyX says, just use the XL2411Z's own blur reduction mode. Lightboost mode on the XL2411Z does have much lower overdrive ghosting (the panel, after all, is the same panel as used on the VG248Q, so Lightboost overdrive quality should be similar on both), but if you don't have an Nvidia video card, just use Benq blur reduction. You can get the same "crosstalk" level as Lightboost mode, by installing two custom resolutions, and using a "Vertical Total=1500" tweak, at 100hz and 120hz refresh rates, with the timings of front porch (48,3), sync width (32,5), HT 2080 and VT 1500. You need the pixel clock patcher installed for this. Make sure the "Strobe Phase" setting in the XL2411Z's service menu is set to "000". Strobe Duty=009 is a good starting point.

If you have an Nvidia video card and still want to use Lightboost for some reason, use ToastyX CRU, change the monitor's product ID to ACI27F8. This will change the monitor ID to Asus 120hz 3d LCD in the Nvidia stereovision tab (after rebooting). Then reboot and run the NVidia 3d vision setup. If it's not already installed, it should be in the NVidia driver extracted folder location somewhere. Once that's done, you need to 'test' 3d by doing the 3d test and then installing the lightboost custom resolutions:

100hz: porch 48,3
sync: 32,5
HT: 2080
VT: 1138

For 120hz: VT 1149.

Once you test one of these resolutions, Lightboost should turn on and you can control it with strobelight.
