Windows 7 Dual Display unstable?


New Member
Has anyone experienced problems using dual display on Windows 7?

On my system everything seems to work fine, but after a while and not always, the primary monitor starts to present random errors, like duplicated parts of the screen horizontally copied in other areas. Minimizing the window, does not solve the problem and soon the error spreads to the entire system (other windows and the desktop and eventually the secondary monitor). The only solution is reboot.

UI have tried with Windows 7 default drivers for my video card (Nvidia 7300 GT 512MB), and also with beta drivers from Nvida and Windows Vista drivers. All of them presents the same issue.

This error appears to occur when there are several windows oppened and /or video file being played on any screen.

Any ideas?

PS this error never appears on Windows Vista or XP.

My system:
core2 duo 2.0Ghz w/ Cooler Master Hyper 212
Asus P5QC
Corsair 2GB RAM 800Mhz
Hard Drive Sansumg 250GB
I've not had any problems running dual monitors so far.

I'm using the Vista 64 182.08 drivers, and I'm usually running vlc streaming live TV on one monitor and browsing or playing games on the other.
