    Trying to scale one monitor, but it's scaling all of them, help!

    So I just got a 4k monitor to add to my two 1080p monitors. I set everything up and it was all fine and good for an hour or so. Basically what's happening is the scale option is locked to the primary display. If I increase the scale of one, the rest follow suit. I've been trying to fix this for hours and need to get this in order so I can work, so please help!

    If it helps, I have an Nvidia GTX 970 and the monitors are two HP 2511's (1DVi/1 HDMI) and a Samsung U28E590D 4k monitor, running through a DisplayPort.

    The goal here is to have the 4k at 150% scale and the other two at 100%.

    I had the same issue but with a different 4K setup , but ended up returning it for a Benq 3200pt instead which has no issue doing what you suggested with my 970 .

    Only thing I can think of it that the monitor maybe in AV (TV) instead of PC mode

    I think it's related to the running app

    I used to do the same thing for my (previous) dual monitor setup with extended desktop, with one 1080p (125%) and another to 1366x768 (100%) and in some apps, the window appeared too big on the 1366x768 because was scaled to 125.

Blurry 2nd Monitor when using different DPI scaling
My main monitor is 2560x1440 and my 2nd monitor is 1920x1080. When I set both to 100% or 125% scaling they both look fine. If I set my main monitor to 125% and my 2nd monitor to 100% the 2nd monitor is blurry. Is anyone else having this problem?...
