    The DM system BIOS can not communicate with the new screens. The changes I have to make in order for it to do that will cause it to no longer understand the the older/other revisions.

    OK, so essentially it's an override. So until I get an updated BIOS i can't do any BIOS changes that would require a CMOS reset as right now I am able to get a signal.

    It's probably why it wouldn't boot back properly when I had the 1440p panel installed the first time.

    Sorry, I don't mean to be a nag about the screen :p

    I just installed the 1.4 QHD screen and it looks amazing, and I haven't even calibrated it yet. Really wish the 1.0 had looked like this all along. After having the other 3 options (120hz FHD, 120Hz QHD, 60hz UHD ) this one is my favorite. Hopefully there's a fix or something that works. Someone posted in another thread about a workaround that at least lets you reboot without swapping the screen out, so I will try that. Until then, fortunately I dont reboot that often.

    I would like to know your experience. I have to install it on a p775dm3g. what is waiting for me? Will not I be able to access the bios? When you restart it, you start windows directly?

    I haven't tried restarting yet. I swapped it out by putting the computer to sleep. The swap out itself, at least on the DM3 is pretty simple and takes 15 minutes. This weekend I will try the workaround described here and let you know how it goes:

    I think we should wait for a resolution of the problem

    Not on a Clevo, but would putting a B173QTN01.4 on a MSI with a 980m make sense(OC'ed stable around 1350Mhz core and +300Mhz VRAM)?

    I'm planning on upgrading to a 1070 on a latter date, but I have only been playing CS:GO and LoL, with a very occasional BF1 and other older titles.

    I imagine CS:GO at 1280x720p at 120Hz would be pretty dope.

    Also, anyone knows a reputable seller on EU, or only China imports?

    Best regards.

    What panel do you have now and what does it clock to?

    The panel is the LG Philips LP173WF4-SPF1, stable OC up to 70Hz, at 71Hz small text starts being fuzzy, at 72Hz the whole screen is shaking/wobbling, my external monitor is an Asus VX239H an it only goes up to 73Hz stable, above that, the same, fuzzy-ness, so I have both set to 70Hz.

    EDIT: Incorrect display model.
