Main monitor pixellated after wake up?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have two monitors, my main 1080p one and my old monitor. The old monitor works fine when it goes to sleep but the main one is extremely pixellated and 25% of the screen has a barrier of wall. It's pixellated as well and if i try to turn it off and on again it just crashes/freezes the whole pc and I have to reboot again. Heres a picture. Only started happening 3-4 days ago IMG_20190114_160852.jpg

 

My second monitor is fine

Allow me a guess:

 

You have an Nvidia GPU and are running the 410+ series drivers as well?

Roll back the driver, DDU it if necessary and reinstall the latest drivers or the previous ones. See if it's stable in the latest drivers, if not then go to the drivers that came out before the latest ones.

Im not too sure what you mean, but i understand you want me to roll back the drivers. I'll try to update to the latest one and see if it will fix the problem im having.

So you have an Nvidia GPU as predicted.

You would actually need to roll back the drivers if you don't want to have to deal with this until Nvidia fixes the problems it's been accumulating with multi-display setups and DisplayPort since I believe the September or October update.

DDU is not necessary @CharminUltraStrong. The Nvidia clean install option will do in this case. But for your info @DrThots, DDU is a piece of third party software that does full/clean uninstallations of drivers.

Yes. A lot of us have run into those issues here and at home. My workaround since Adobe requires those drivers be updated so far is to either not run the 2019 updates or to... Run Quadros with enterprise drivers that haven't been affected (the regular update stream is), lol.

Download the older drivers straight off the Nvidia site and perform a clean install. There should be an "archive" submenu.

would i need to uninstall my current nvidia drive or would it just replace it automatically? Also is the clean install option avaliable ONLY when you download it. Is there a video tutorial online, im not too good with myself at this stuff

It should replace it, hence my reference ot the "clean uninstall" option in the installer.

Here's the page if you want to find old drivers.

Yes so long as you want to resolve your issue. Being on the cutting edge of updates is really not always better and can cause more headaches (namely, the ones you're experiencing) at times.

Just keep on the lookout for future updates addressing this bug. Nvidia releases patch notes and they've already fixed some of the multi-display problems in the newest patch, just not all of them.

You can reference the change lists of the updates that followed it to know if it will affect anything else.
