Hello all,

I am facing issue as I am using two monitor at same time to extend the screen.
I didn't have this Issue before, but I am not exactly sure what caused this issue. I am assuming windows 10, because I don't recall
having this sort of problem in previous windows.

I tried different versions of my video card drive, and this didn't fix it.
Now, I am using single display, which is working just fine.
I wonder what is the main cause for this issue(bad graphic card, drive incompatibility issues, or system conflict)?

Thanks for your help

A couple of things stood out in the Speccy report that is probably causing your problems. First your Hitachi drive shows to be failing. I would back up all important information on this drive and replace it ASAP. Also you need more RAM to be able to run 2 monitors or get descent service. Your available memory was less than 2 GBs. I'd bump it up to 8 GBs if your motherboard supports it.

As I said in windows 7 I didn't face this kind of problem. Also, can you explain how Hard drive and RAM can cause this to crash. Btw I have about 4GB or ram.

Windows 7 didn't require as much resources as Windows 10 does. A portion of your RAM is dedicated to your graphics card leaving little for other uses. A failing hard drive like any failing hardware will not work right. I encourage you to download the Hitachi diagnostic tests as Speccy isn't 100%
