Issue Details
- Overview: Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 PCIe crashes Dell Studio XPS 9100 after startup. System randomly shuts off and begins sounding the "beep code" (6 consecutive beeps) indicating a video card failure. Noteably, I've been running the setup discussed herein for around two years without issue. This is the first major problem I've had.

-Frequency: Sometimes the issue presents immediately, sometime the computer will run for a while (up to 36 hours) before crashing again.

-Possible Related Problems: I don't know if these issues have anything to do with the video card problem, but after rebooting from each crash, Windows denotes the following error messages:

1. in the Action Center: "PCIExpress has stopped working properly." (Every time);

2."The version number of the component "HydraDMHY.DLL" (4.0.66) does not match the component "HudraDM.EXE" ()..." (Sometimes)

- Trouble Shooting Attempts:
1. I disabled Hydravision due to the error message mentioned above (problem continued)

2. I disconnected one of the three displays (i.e., the DVI to DVI). This seemed to resolve the issue as the computer would no longer crash. Moreover, when I would reconnect the thrid display, the computer would eventually crash again and continue doing so until I disconnected the monitor.


Fix Needed:
Obviously disconnecting one of my three monitors provides a temporary fix; however, I would like to trouble shoot the problem so that I can reconnect all three monitors.
