Hey everyone,

Just switched from a Mac to a PC. And I am experiencing an issue where I am able to run in 4k, but everything is very grainy. Basically looks like a over sharpened image. I would be able to tolerate this if it wasn't for how bad it effects my photos in lightroom. My photos all appear to have a ton of grain to them. I have tried everything and searched the net with no luck. Has anyone else ever experienced this?

Just to eliminate the obvious things, the graphics card on the PC supports 4K, and is set to 4K resolution?

Right-click on an empty part of the desktop, seletct Display Settings and check the resolution is 3840 x 2160.  If that isn't in the list (or doesn't have "Recommended" after it) then Windows thinks the monitor isn't 4K or the graphics card doesn't support 4K.
