so i got my new 240hz g sync monitor and i set up g sync and stuff but as i went through the monitor's settings(not on the PC side, the monitor side with the joystick and buttons) i turned on the hz counter and started up a game but... the hz isnt changing even tho the fps is lower than 240 is this a bug on the monitor's software or is it a bug on the drivers?(driver version 419.17)

You do have to enable G-sync if you haven't. Windows will typically remind you every time the device is plugged in.

You have to use Display Port.

You'll need a compatible Nvidia card.

In-game settings:
V-sync on will stop the monitor from going over its set refresh rate.
V-sync off will disable G-sync above the set refresh rate (allowing maximum frame rate, but no syncing beyond that point, but G-sync will still operate up to the set refresh rate.

thanks for the reply this early guys!
I use DisplayPort, it works after "re" setting g sync in the Nvidia control panel then restarting pc then it works but after a while it just locks back to 240hz and yes i have v sync off also i have a 1050ti

Don't think it's a counter per se, just lets you know what the refresh is currently set to. Would disable that and use an in-game counter or something like Afterburner.
you do know that what I'm talking about is the Hz counter and not an fps counter right? (sorry if i sound rude...)
 
Gotcha. Saying it's pointless (and probably inaccurate) especially if you use a framerate counter. If you are not seeing tearing with your Mark I Eyeball with gsync enabled then Hz=FPS and you are good to go. If you are actually seeing tearing, then there is something wrong.

i dont see it per say but i do feel the difference especially when im playing competitive games such as csgo
 
Hmm. Maybe try a new displayport cable in a different DP slot on the GPU?

Edit: actually, if it works then stops, could be a bad monitor. Try the cable thing first but may be a case where you need to RMA the monitor.

Might review your installed software and try running with the bare minimum. My old keyboard had a small LCD and the driver for that would prevent SLI or G-sync from being changed if it was running. I think I had a similar problem with my mouse driver for a while. Nvidia eventually got around to fixing that.
