Like in the title, my screen is really flat…
I have a NVIDIA GTX 1650 and Web Drivers installed, Whatever Green, and it do this. I tried to plug it in the motherboard and change to iGPU but same thing… I was also asking if it was possible to use a second monitor plugged in the motherboard and the other in the GPU in Hackintosh ? I send you photos in close.

Hello and welcome. :thumbup:

The problem you have is that the GTX1650 GPU has no macOS drivers. There never has been. So what you are seeing is your display in a basic VESA mode with no hardware acceleration. (A give-away is that the Menu Bar and Dock both have solid backgrounds when they should normally be translucent).

As for a second monitor, well the above still applies. You can use the iGPU if your i5 has one and it is supported. I tried to Google for your Asus model - Asus ZK-914 - but could find no details to help me. Perhaps give us more detail, like the Intel series.

My motherboard is ASUS z97-k. My processor is a intel i5 4790k, I have 8gb of ram (ddr3) and Hackintosh is installed on a Nvme. Thanks you for the reply.

You could connect the flat screen to the Intel HD 4600 IGPU via HDMI cable, from the HDMI connector on the rear I/O plate.

The Asus Z97-K's Graphics connections can provide the following: HDMI resolutions highlighted

You could use an SSDT to disable the Nvidia GTX 1650 in macOS but still have it present and usable in Windows, Linux etc.

This would possibly mean using 2 x HDMI connections, one from the GTX 1650 for Windows etc. and one from the HD4600 HDMI connector for macOS.

same story here. Tried to plug on the motherboard and the screen is flat… But my second screen is perfect ???! I use VGA for one and HDMI for my principal screen and the resolution on VGa is actually good…
