Triple monitor setup not working in Windows 7 after upgrade

by lraearl / November 11, 2010 5:41 AM PST

I have a computer that is setup to display onto three monitors at once. It worked fine while I had XP but after upgrading to Windows 7, it only displayed onto one monitor. When I pull up the device manager, it indicates that one graphics card is working properly while the status of the other graphics card is "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" I would appreciate some assistance with this matter. I'm running a MSDNAA copy of Windows 7 on a custom made computer that has an ASUS motherboard.

Sounds proper.

Upgrades rarely succeed in keeping custom setups like that.

The MSDNAA copy comes with it's own support if you fail to fix it with a fresh install.

As no machine details are found (sorry if I missed it) I have only one idea. A fresh install.

Have you tried downloading the latest video card drivers?

Also, specs of your computer would be helpful.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
