I have a client that is running 3 19in monitors on one system. Two are on a card (NVidia) one is on the motherboard (AMD). Everything works fine until she starts watching streaming video online, then the screens start having random pixilation issues that show up on all 3 monitors. The can get bad enough to make the screen unreadable, but it's hard to explain. It's like artifacts appear on all 3 and get worse and worse until reboot


 I had them unplug one monitor, and didn't get any additional calls on it until yesterday. Not sure on the timeline between plugging the monitor back in and the pixels showing back up. All drivers are updated, all cables are tight...not sure where to go from here.

I'm very surprised you were able to get both of the cards working, typically you cannot get both working at once when they are the different brands, they cause all sorts of issues with each other.


I would recommend getting a second Nvidia card and use that for the 3rd, or get a newer single card that can handle 3.


Im not sure why it only shows problems once you look at online videos but chances are its just dumb luck.
