5830 flickers on 1 of 2 Monitors

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have two monitors plugged in to an XFX 5830. When I watch a video on one screen, the other constantly flickers anytime I move my mouse. I've installed all my drivers from the ATI website, but I can't figure out what's causing this. The only thing I have modified is OC my CPU. Thanks in advance!

Use MSI Afterburner to monitor your idle clocks. If they're at 157/300, then OC your memory and see if it still flickers.

Its been awhile since I've tried watching video on my system but I remember having issues setting my TV as a secondary and trying to watch videos on it. I had to make my TV my primary monitor to get things to work properly. I know its not a solution but hopefully it will help you some.

Hmm, I can try that. I have two monitors and my TV hooked up via HDMI cable. Problem is that I wouldn't want to keep a 42' TV as my primary for too long. That's just too big for me. Thanks to all who offered help.
