Problems with Nvidia Surround? Drivers? GPU?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay I've been having a bunch of stupid issues with my computer lately and I'm trying to figure out what the problem is and I can't seem to find any issues so I wanna ask some people who have similar systems to mine if they have the same issues. I'm on the 314.07 WHQL driver, running 5760x1080 with 2 680s. Okay here is a list of the issues

1. When you right click something in the taskbar the context menu pops up on the far left corner of the left screen.
2. Foobar with certain skins does not work at all (Darkone being the worst, I know my friend uses it on a single screen with same drivers and no issues)
3. Battlefield 3 sometimes crashes on launching a map, causes chrome to go completely black for 20-30 seconds while the PC locks up and then recovers
4. Battlefield 3 crashing on launch causing chrome window and the taskbar to go all white, requiring a hard reset, start button doesn't work, ctrl-alt-delete power menu causes a complete lockup
5. And yesterday battlefield was running at ~1 frame per 3 seconds, hit alt-tab 4 or 5 times and it jumped back up. Not sure if this is related as I've only seen it once. The crashes happened about 25-50% of the time I tried to launch the game.
6. Some windows will maximize across all 3 screens even though it's set to maximize to one screen - this I'm pretty sure is a driver bug
7. Folding on the gpus fails. Every time.

This is a fairly fresh windows install (a week or so) I've run memtest on both gpus for about 8 hours a piece, and can run valley and new 3dmark with no issues whatsoever. All these issues are with the cards on stock clocks, I can run benchmarks stable at +52/+175 max power level.

I'm getting tempted to sell these cards and go AMD but I'm pretty strapped for cash so I wouldn't be able to throw cash on top, so I'm sure it would be a downgrade.

Well.... don't sell the GPUs because my 7970s crashed BF3 just as much for me by the sound of it. While it was just a few titles, I ended up giving up Eyefinity due to poor support myself. Some people have no problems (usually now, 16+ months after launch) but I never have that luck as an early adopter. I think I am just a sado...

Regarding the folding, I think folding fails with two reasons: SLI Enabled or bad OCs.

You say it benchmarks fine... so I have to ask, have you tried other games?

Yeah other games have been fine it just those issues, but battlefield is really the only game I play that is stressing on them at all. And as far as folding I have folded before with SLI on on older drivers (that I can't find anymore, was 309 I think? nvidiia only goes back to 310) and I don't have them overclocked 24/7, just when benching.
