Monitor flackert mit Quadro P2200

Help, the monitor msi MPG343CQR flickers in connection with the graphics card Nvidia Quadro P2200. Monitor has already been checked.

Hi, there should be no general compatibility problem with any screen really. Couple of questions to boil down the potential root causes:

  • whats the target resolution?
  • whats the connection/cable, any adapters in use?
  • has this very screen, while using the same resolution, input and cable, been tested with a different GPU?
  • has a different cable, a different adapter, a different GPU output been tested?
  • has a different screen, same res, same cable and adapters been sucesfully tried?

Pls help with more details around the problem - THANKS
-Frank

Hi Daniel, thanks for this (little) information.
Generally this resolution - assuming 60Hz - should work and not be at the edge of bandwidth-limits.
Your answers leave the possibility, the monitor might have an issue.
DP is a complex protocol, and has a mechanism in place, to ‘compensate’ for transmission errors, where a new bandwidth negotiation will be triggered by the sink, which received corrupted signals → which will cause flicker. All I can assume from your feedback is that there is a signal corruption happening between GPU/sender and display/sink, which often happens with adapters or long cables.
Its unclear which part(s) contributes to the signal corruption.
And even if it was undoubtly proven its the GPU, I’m unsure you still have any warranty on this old P2200 product. If you expect to still be under warranty, you will have to go via your dealer to claim the warranty, this could be an OEM like HP or Dell, or a channel partner like PNY or Arrows…
kind regards
