Ahhhhhh.... i didn't realize swapping out a TV (or GPU) would cause so many troubles.I think the tearing no longer happens, perhaps it just needed a restart
, but now I get other odd issues.
*Edit: Tearing is back after another restart to try something. I think it is related to when Windows no longer lets Aero work, but I cant turn it back on and it may come back on its own after sleeping and I believe with TV/Receiver off.*
**Edit2: I found something showing some of this is a Windows 7 limitation so I guess it won't be fixable. Microsoft Link
The biggest now is that if the TV is not on PC input, my screens will turn on and off and keep cycling or checking inputs, idk.
This is the first time I have noticed any of this so something started it that I cant explain.
I disconnected the TV display in windows for now so it stopped.
I am also pretty sure then even with my TV and receiver off, windows still somehow thinks a 3rd monitor is connected and I can even move my mouse over into the "3rd screen".
I would expect it to just only see 2 screens and work with them until I power the receiver and TV back on, but it isn't working like that.I have also seen windows turn off Aero and make my desktops go to a black background and no longer see any icons on my desktop, this is with the TV connected and on PC input.
Perhaps it is just shifting the other 2 monitors into a corner of a display or something because the 3rd screen is 4k and it tries to make the others big too, but its not like my mouse thinks the screens are bigger.
(^^^This rolls into the above "edit 2")
I have a feeling most of these things occur once I have the TV and receiver off or changed inputs from PC to OTA TV or Smart TV Apps.
These few things are hard to explain and maybe not consistent so it's even harder to troubleshoot.
Everything may change too once I restart the PC again.
One last one that I am pretty sure is GPU related is that the GPU must have it's display inputs in some default priority.
When I do a restart, my Bios splash screen and stuff will show up on my secondary monitor connected via DVI, but once windows login finally pops up, it shifts to the correct main display connected via DP.
This may have occurred even before I swapped out my TV and certainly only started after changing GPUs and how my main screen is connected (used to be both via DVI).
So many little problems and troubles that I don't know where to begin or how to troubleshoot which component is causing the problems... very frustrating.Edited by mrtbahgs - 10/8/16 at 11:04pm
