Can't Deactivate freesync (RX580 and AOC AG241QX)

Monitor will not get out of freesync mode, although I turn it off in AMD Radeon Settings. Only when I boot the pc in safe mode, or I uninstall the GPU drivers, the monitor turns the freesync off, but the problem remains, when I boot normally, or reinstall the drivers. I run windows 10.

So when you turn Freesync off in the monitor's OSD, it will switch itself back on?

This monitor does not have an option for freesync in the OSD. It just shows the state that it is in.

How do you know Freesync is not being disabled when you disable it from the Radeon Settings?

I was able to disable it by first disabling in Radeon Settings then reboot the PC. I did that as a workaround for the current bug with video playback and freesync when playing a video game that exceeds 60fps.

I know it because the monitor OSD shows it is in freesync. I of course have tried to disable it and then reboot the pc, but still the OSD shows that the monitor is in freesync mode. The only way i have managed to get it out of freesync mode, is when I uninstalled the gpu drivers (but when i reinstalled the problem was still there), or when i boot in safe mode.

What is the reason for disabling freesync? If you really want to disable it, in the monitor osd change display port from 1.2 to 1.1

The reason for disabling freesync is for using the Low Input Lag mode which i need most. I set DP from 1.2 to 1.1 and the monitor OSD still shows that it is in freesync mode, and the Low Input Lag is still greyed out and I can’t turn it on.

Odd. My Samsung monitor has the low input lag feature and it is still available while Freesync is on.

Did you ever figure this out?

Unfortunatelly not... I contacted AMD support and I followed their instructions (clean uninstalled drivers, reinstalled some older drivers, etc.)  but

no luck...
