Hi all. Came home with a Dell S3220DGF Monitor and am having issues.
When I first connected using provided DP 1.2 cable and enable HDR in windows display setting, the screen went white! I restarted the PC but it booted in to a white screen. I was lucky my son guessed that the monitor OSD would allow me turn off HDR , after which everything came back to normal. I purchased a DP 1.4 cable today (as the manual says the monitor ships with a 1.4 port) but this has not helped. Windows display setting no longer shows any HDR options and they need to be turned off at monitor end to prevent white screening. I have failed to find any solutions on the net to my problem.
Here is some general info.

Win 10 Pro
i7 1000
RTX 2070 S
32 GB RAM
Display port 1.4 and cable 1.4
Refresh rate164Hz (could this need to be dropped?)
Output color depth 8 bpc
G Sync is enabled.

P.S. Forgive me if I have missed something obvious. Might be just a little over exited.....and by the way it is a beautiful monitor.
