duel monitor issues

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have an evga gtx 580 superclocked and i just brought out my other monitor because i wanted to go duel. When i hook the second one up and set the control panel for duel monitors my main monitor just flickers and the second on comes on just fine. it makes my main not useable at all. Any ideas why this would happen?

Hi Dazsinister. Have you been able to try the monitors individually with your setup? This would help to rule out the displays as having a fault. How are they connected?

The dual monitor flickering is caused by a bug in the more recent EVGA GTX 580 BIOS. I had this problem as well. EVGA released an older BIOS which fixed the issue. You can find the BIOS here: http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?h...mpage=3#854218
