Scaling mode does not work

Hello.

I have a video card AMD rx580 8GB connected to the monitor AOS AG251FZ via DisplayPort 2.0. Driver: Adrenalin 18.3.1

There are 2 problems with this bundle:

1: The scaling mode "Center" does not work. The monitor has a native resolution of 1920x1080, when I try to set the scaling mode "center" in the driver (for example, running Counter Stike: Global Offensive at 1280x1024 (5: 4)), the monitor displays it to the upper left corner, not "centered" ", which is naturally a problem.

2: I can not disable Freesync, it's possible to do it, but in the menu of the display, in any situation in the "refresh rate" field, this function remains on, which makes it impossible to activate another function "low input lag". On the specifics of the monitor, I must disable any buffering of frames to use the "low input lag" function.

Help me solve these problems.

Thank you for attention.

Re: Scaling mode does not work

Cant answer why center doesn't work but full panel works fine. Plus it centers and expands to the full limits of your screen if the native image does not. I would recommend that setting to you.

Re: Scaling mode does not work

Do you have GPU scaling on/enabled?

Re: Scaling mode does not work

Yes, ofcourse. I tried to enable and disable GPUscaling, but there is no difference. The image always rests on the upper left corner.

For example, it all looks something like this when the scaling mode is "center":

Re: Scaling mode does not work

Thanks, I pictured what you were saying just don't know what to do about it. I have never seen this issue before.


As I said I run full panel. This doesn't make everthing full screen either unless it is maximized or set to be full screen, otherwise it just centers. Have you tried this?

Another thing I have noticed in fact it just happened to me again after last months roll-up update in Windows,

after the update my monitor driver is back to being the Generic PNP,  I then have to reload my manufacturers driver. In my case, the PNP driver messes up FreeSync. So you might check this, or if you never had a Manufacturer Driver installed to begin with it could potentially help, even if not with this issue, something else.

I have also seen where the settings in the monitor itself can affect things, and many of the weird things going on causing issues in current drivers is because Microsoft has been sneaking in new standards upgades into their updates. So for for instance many monitors have settings for the different levels of Display Port Standards. You might look into the settings you have, as something that once worked might now be an issue. I even had an monitor once that would mess up and you had to unplug it and let it discharge and then turn.

Also give another port if available a try on your card and monitor. I have seen ports just go bad out of the blue. I have a bad HDMI port on my last R9 380x card.

If none of these simpler things don't pan out, I would move that monitor to another computer and see if it is fine there and/or vice versa try another monitor on yours to trouble shoot the issue. At least you will now for sure where the issue definitely resides.

If you don't have that option, unless your mean to your neighbors or family members, someone will help you out.

Good Luck! Let us know what you figure out.

Hold left mouse button, drag it to centre (windows should remember it after that) ?

Re: Scaling mode does not work

Hey ray_m​  gave some input in another thread that says "Scaling options are only available on HDMI connections, so you will not see them when connected via DP."

You can read that thread in entirety here: Can't get CCC to install with Adrenaline. It will only install Cnext/CCCslim

I know the topic looks different but it gets into the scaling stuff as it evolves.

Re: Scaling mode does not work

In the end, I need to switch my monitor to hdmi for the normal functioning of the scaling mode. Right?
