    Thanks UKMedia,

    I have two NVIDIA GeForce GT 630 cards, with I hope, NVIDIA Windows 10 v358.50 driver.

    Today it was running fine with four screens, acer V233w, full of charts from Ninja Trader, when the trading market opened at 9:30 it all crashed. I couldn't even power off.
    thanks for your time.

    IT will really be interesting to learn why the other two are ot working... tks best2u

    Sorry to hear that and when they crash are you able to check Device Manager?

    Also, have you tried un-installing the drivers, rebooting and then clean installing the latest driver?

    Error code 31!


    Crashed again today, this time with no programs running, just four blank screens.

    In Device Manager I did notice however an ERROR CODE 31! Ya some clue.
    "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for the device (Code 31)

    And actually two screens work and the driver is working for those two. It's the same driver and the two video cards are the same NVIDIA GeForce GT 630s.

    P.S. Oh yes I have been unistalling the drivers, rebooting, and reinstalling NVIDIA's latest, bestist, Windows 10 driver.

    I'm getting the idea Windows 10 does not like more than one driver.

    Have you tried running SFC /Scannow in an Admin Command Prompt window?

    Also, if you disable the card that remains working within Device Manager, does the other card then work okay?

    Both Nvidia's & AMD's Windows 10 SLI support is iffy at best, so you may be just SOL until drivers are more stable.
    In the meantime, you might try uninstalling the drivers with DDU and reinstalling them (from Nvidia, not Windows Update) to see if that gives you any better stability.

    Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations
    -Also, if you disable the card that remains working within Device Manager, does the other card then work okay?
    Well there's just one listed now and two screens, but I did disable it anyway with apparent affect. At some point it will reboot with all four monitors and the two video cards. Then maybe I can try that. Currently the NVIDIA driver (from their website fracking4oil) gets replaced by some basic Windows driver.

    -Also, if you disable the card that remains working within Device Manager,
    First there's 2 monitors on and one Display Adapter listed instead of two before. So I disable it and one monitor goes out. ?
    These two remaining monitors plug into the same Video Card.

    Ha ha, so after awhile I booted up to two screens, but with two video cards in Device Mgr.
    One VC not working properly. I disabled the working VC and lost a screen, down to one screen, one not working VC and one disabled VC! Not sure what it's doing for a driver.

    When you disable the card, it is probably using the Basic Windows Video driver.

    If you right click on the background and open the Nvidia Control Panel, can you show me the screen below, using the Sniping tool?

    the snipping I took blew up and I had to delete it. I'll try saving them and posting.

    Oh and I still have run anything I want to save as Administrator even though it says I am!

    It should see four monitors.
