  1. Adding 2nd Monitor is causing PC to crash


    I recently added a new monitor to my gaming PC set up, and now it occasionally will crash the entire PC. Could this be a power supply issue or something else?

    2nd Monitor, HDMI, Causing Crash BSOD


    When powering on 2nd monitor, a Sony flat screen, system crashes with BSOD and SYSTEM_THREAD_..... (atimdag.sys) error message.

    Using AMD's latest Win10 drivers, also tried the Beta release. No change. Uninstalled drivers and reinstalled. No change. ANy ideas? Radeon 5670 supposed to be WIn 10 compatible.

    Thanks all!

    Color Display on 2nd monitor

    I am using Windows 10 on a Dell laptop with a 2nd monitor which has been working fine. For some unknown reason I have suddenly lost the full color range on the 2nd monitor. I don't know if I have changed some setting by accident or what. I have tried
    resetting the defaults but that didn't change anything on the 2nd monitor. The primary screen on the laptop continues to work fine. Any suggestions what needs to be done to restore the full color range on monitor #2?

    Hi Billy,

    This is Wil, one of the independent advisor and an expert with Windows 10.

    I understand your concern with Multiple displays.

    To get your PC to recognize multiple monitors:

    1. Verify that your cables are connected properly to the new monitors.

    2. Select how you want the desktop to display. You can press the Windows logo key + P and select an option, or use the following steps if you need more settings options.

    3. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and select Display settings to open the Display page. Your PC should automatically detect your monitors and show your desktop. If you don't see the monitors, select Detect.

    4. Scroll down to Multiple displays, then select an option from the drop-down list to determine how your desktop will display across your screens. For the largest work area, select Extend desktop.

    5. Select Keep changes.

    6. Scroll up to Resolution and select an option. We suggest that you use the recommended resolution settings.

    7. Select Keep changes.
