Windows 10: Dual monitors causes crash

    Dual monitors causes crash

    Upgraded my system with 2x Dell U2415Q (run on GTX 970).

    When I have both moniters turned on and they go to sleep. Windows crashes when I try to wake them up (they are stuck in sleep mode and looking for signal).

    If I turn of either one of them 10166 (and all builds I tested) works perfect.

    Is it a NVIDIA (I have latest drivers and hot fix) driver problem or Win 10?

    Don't know what to tell you. I have a GTX 650, with 3 monitors (2 DVI, one HDMI) and it works fine. Do you, by any chance, have it configured for... I forget what NVidia calls it, but where it's one giant desktop rather than 2 individual desktops?

    Dual monitors causes crash

    I have the same problem with two Viewsonic monitors one a VA2212M and one a TD2220 and a Navida GeForce GTX 460 SE, but mine will not come out of sleep, I have to shut it down and restart the computer.
    I have had this problem in all of the builds.

    Dual monitors worked fine when I was using Windows 10 but I have a 970.

    I installed the latest intel-chipset beta from station-drivers ( and the nvidia hot fix. I think it might have helped..
