So you’re getting the G-sync compatible display connected notification again and again and it’s bothering you. The problem seems to be effecting many Nvidia Users with G-sync compatible monitors, but it doesn’t stem from the monitor.
The problem is caused by many factors which we’ll discuss in this post and I’ll tell you how to fix the notification problem.
How It Happens
The most common thing that happens is screen flickering followed by a notification “G-sync compatible display connected”. Some players have reported that their computer started restarting or they could hear the sound of the computer but the screen of the monitor turned black.
How To Fix The G-Sync Notification Problem
1. Go into Manage Notifications and Turn Off The G-Sync Indicator
The easiest thing you can do is to simply turn off the notification as it is very bothersome, the last thing you want is for your screen to flicker and ruin your gaming experience, especially if you’re an Esports player.
How To Turn Off G-Sync Notification
- Right click on your desktop and click on “Nvidia Control Panel”.
- Go into “Display” and then Disable the “G-sync indicator”
This will most likely fix the issue, but you might still get the notification in some games. If it doesn’t work then move on to the next solution.
2. Reinstall Your Monitor Drivers Again
Re-installing the latest monitors is the best way to ensure that everything is setup correctly, here’s how you can safely update the drivers for your monitor:
- Go the website of the your monitors’ manufacturer
- Go to the download center
- Enter your model name and then download the latest drivers for it.
3. Undervolt Your Nvidia Graphics Card
Heavily overclocked graphics cards or sometimes even very powerful GPUs tend to cause screen flicker, this might be indirectly related with the G-sync notification problem so use a tool like MSI afterburner to undervolt your graphics card.
Overclocked GPUs usually tend to operate at a higher temperature so that might be the reason for why you’re getting screen flicker with G-sync.
How To Undervolt GPU:
4. Check if The Graphics Card Is Performing Properly
The condition of your GPU is very important when it comes to using G-sync with it, so make sure that your graphics card is not overheating, the latest drivers are installed and that it’s performing how it should.
5. Turn Off Adaptive Sync
I know, turning off adaptive sync is counter intuitive to our goal but we need to turn it off so we can diagnose the actual problem, here’s how you can disable adaptive sync.
- Right click on Desktop and select “Nvidia Control Panel”
- Click on “Display” and go to “G-sync”
- Finally, disable Gsync
6. Update Your GPU Driver to Version 466.77
Drivers above 466.77 are supposedly causing problems according to many of the G-sync users , so if you have the latest drivers installed then I would suggest that you rollback to this version as this seems to be the most stable version working with G-sync
So should you be worried if you’re getting this notification? No! because in most cases it’s a problem with either the monitor or your graphics cards drivers. However it can be quite bothersome if you’re getting this notification again and again so it would be better to turn it off completely.
