  1. Okay so ive had this problem on and off since upgrading to windows 10. My monitors keep disconnecting and then reconnecting every minute or so. I have 3 monitors 2 * 1080p and a single 4k. Im running a 780ti and because it doesnt have enough outputs on the back to drive all three displays im running one of the displays of my integrated graphics (display port on my motherboard) the other two displays the 4k and the other 1080p are connected through display port and hdmi. This is everything i have tried. Updating driver software for both the 780ti and the integrated graphics. When i look at task manager i can predict the monitor disconnect as my cpu usage starts to peak and then spikes ranging from 80-100% load. I have turned of my overclock and my temps are around 35c. i have tried disconecting each monitor one by one from the display input to see if there is a bad cable, on every monitor the screen still flashes black for about a second. I have timed each disconnect and they seem to be in the range of 1 minute +/- 5 seconds. sometimes when i boot my pc maybe ⅖ times it will not have this problem. When the CPU peaks an application is run called ‘Windows problem reporting’ which uses about 70% CPU. During this time my RAM usage is a constant 4GB i have 8GB in total. So im stuck i have tried everything i can think of can anyone help?
  2. Hi I currently have 3 monitors a 4K in the center and two 1080p monitors on either side. Ive been using the 4k unscaled for some time now but i get eye strain trying to view the smaller UI elements. The problem is if i turn the scaling to 150% on the 4k display, applications like chrome and others will become blurry on the other two 1080p displays. Is there a way to fix this?
  3. I was getting really slow speeds upstairs as the main wireless access point is down stairs, so i though i would repurpose an old wireless router as an access point. I have a direct ethernet connection upstairs for my main pc so i thought i might as well. My old router is a Netgear N600 so i connected the ethernet to the back of the N600 and then another ethernet cable to my computer. Like this: Ethernet port --> Ethernet Cable --> Netgear N600 --> Ethernet Cable --> PC. The problem is that im getting around 20-25mb/s on the wireless on both 2.4 and 5. I have a 200mb/s link on my main computer yet im only getting ~25mb/s on the wireless. Is there a software problem or something i need to enable to get this to work. Thanks
  4. Thanks so much i just ended up running the 3rd monitor off of integrated graphics as im not gaming on it.
  5. So i just brought 3 new monitors a P2415Q and two U2414H's ive been trying to get them to connect to my 780ti for about an hour. The 4K display connects however the two 1080p monitors wont. Because the 780ti only has a single display port ive connected the other 2 displays with a displayport to dvi adapter. Any help would be appriciated thanks. Update: I have got one to work using a hdmi cable instead of the adpater cable, but now i dont know how to connect the other monitor.
  6. I think the way it should be dealt with is to make the game play period equal to a percentage of the game say 10%. Devs will tell steam a 'recomended' completion time for the game say '10 hours' to complete the game or '2 hours' or whatever. That way if the game is long say 20 hours of gameplay you will be allowed to 'test' the game for 2 hours. Whereas if the game takes 2 hours to complete you are only able to play 12 minutes until the return period is up. I think the gameplay return period should scale with the length of the game.
  7. Just moved to America from Australia and wondering if my Corsair 860 will work on the American grid? Or will i have to buy a new powersupply. Do they have switchable transformers? Thanks
