Hi, before start will like to mention that this issue does not happen on Windows 7.

The problem is screen corruption once two monitors are plugged in and i extend the desktop. I have two minitors, Samsung P2370H on HDMI, and a Samsung 943NWX on VGA via DVI adapter.

Generally the screen corruption starts on the second monitor only, and it movs to the main one once i run a game, it happens both on desktop and in-game.

Its hard to explain, so i made videos to show up.


Thats the corruption happening on secondary display ONLY:

When i run a game it moves intro the primary display and stay in that way until restart (powering down/up does not work probably because is hibernation).

It seems like playing videos effects, but it happens even with not videos at all.

I see it didn't happen with win7 but does with win8. Weird, but my spidey sense tells me it has something to do with the VGA only monitor or the adapter.  All 3 of my monitors are digital and there's nothing like that happening. Your vid mentions this is a 5850 and I have the 5870 so..

So, can you beg, borrow, buy a digital monitor to replace the old vga.. just for testing purposes?

No, its driver problem, the problem starts on the second monitor, but it jumps to the main ONLY after running a game.

Also it does not happen with the Intel IGP.
