Today I added a second monitor to my pc, now it randomly crashes. The displays show a random color or combination of colors when it crashes leaving me to believe the GPU doesn't like pushing this many pixels or something. The crash seems to happen when there is GPU accelerated video or 3d objects being rendered, it doesn't matter what monitor has the gpu accelerated program running on it.

Here is a picture of it working:

And of a crash:

The vertical monitor is 1680 x 1050 and the horizontal monitor is 1920 x 1200. The laptop is an entirely different computer, the error on it's screen reads, "Master failed to respond."

The event viewer for the desktop gives:

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
