Windows 7: New video card "Mirrioring" itself on multiple monitors, please help

09 Apr 2014   #11

Windows 10 Home Premium 64bit sp1

Ok ok The op is kind of confusing it says 9800GT so forgive the hasty reply i do read system specs from time to time and if he is using AMD it should work automatic

He should also edit his specs as well his specs clearly say gt 9600 and gt9800

Ok so I just installed a new SSD today so I really need to get this video card situation taken care of already.

1) So run AMD Clean uninstall in windows
2) Then boot in safe mode
3) Run Nvidia's Display Driver Uninstaller in safe mode
4) Restart
5) Then use the video card install cd when normals windows reloads? Is there where I get the fresh install of the AMD Catalyst drivers, or will the video card automatically download them when it reboots into normal mode with no nvidia drivers?

you installed an SSD without doing a clean instal of windows!?!?

you can download the latest driver from under downloads just select your os, gpu type and then the model.

No I did a clean install on the SSD, (even though it messed up & I have to format it already)

But I am still having the same issues with the SSD, so I'm assuming I need to run the Nvidia DDU before installing the AMD drivers.

Does the video card automatically install it's own drivers when windows starts up & recognizes it?

well formay it first. a clean fresh install wont have any nvidia driver on it. so theres nothing to uninstall.

and no youll have to download the drivers from amds website.

Actually I just got it all worked out on my HDD, thank you. Now I have to plug my SSD back in & install it on that. (I'm in the process of moving from HDD to SSD so having to do all kinds of things)

Windows 7 64 & Ubuntu 64

So the last day or so both monitors that I have hooked up right now start to flicker/crunch together (I don't really know the proper term it just seems to go crazy at times)

I can restart & it will be fine for a bit & then start acting up again.

Any ideas or options to fix this?

could be driver related, ram related, cable, psu related ect.

First of all unplug one monitor and just run the one. does that solve the issue?

if it doesnt try a new cable on just the one. if that doesnt, download the latest beta driver, and or the previous version to what you have no.

if that doesnt work and or befoee you try any of the above try reseating your graphics card. as well as swapping the power cables for any others on your psu if you have them.

if none of that works try doing a ram test, see if thats the cause.

and or finally try another power supply if you have one/can borrow one.

Windows 7 64 & Ubuntu 64

I uninstalled the latest driver & reinstalled the beta driver, seems to be working better.

Before I did that I also reduced the Refresh rate from 60hz to 59hz & that made a MAJOR difference even before trying the beta drivers.

Now the beta driver is on 60hz & I can't seem to get it to change to 59hz for extra stability but it keeps reverting back to 60hz

I do still get some lag/scratchy lines if I scroll a web page really fast, what would be the cause of this? It was happening before the beta driver too, even after I changed the refresh rate to 59hz it would still do it when scrolling a web page fast?

Any ideas?

"Color ringing" on text, ATI video card, only with Firefox
This problem in Firefox started around the time of the V13 video drivers for ATI HD* video cards (I have an HD4850 running v13.1 and an HD5770 running v13.4). Or, it might have been around the time v20 of Firefox came out (I'm currently using v21.0). Don't know exactly. So the problem may be...
