I have a setup with 4 pluggble units, one vga monitor run off the laptop and the laptop screen. It works great and I love it, but since geetting a new computer (same operating system, same manufacturer - different video card, more memory) it seems like anytime I have a screen that is heavy in motion (not video, but webads and the like), or has a large load, the affected monitor will bug out and go half-blank - the other half shows up fine - the blank half has pixellated fuzziness but won’t display even a ghost of an image. The failure does not affect the other monitors in this array.
Unplugging the USB or that monitor and plugging it back in fixes the problem, but is inconvenient. I have the latest drivers, and it does not seem to be a resolution or monitor specific problem because a) I have one monitor at 1366x768 (VGA), one at 1920x1080 (DVI), and two inverted protrait at 1080x1920 (VGA) and b)they are two Acer and two Viewsonic.
The current laptop is Toshiba Satellite S870, i7 3630QM @ 2.4GHz, 16GB and 64 bit on Win 7 Pro.
It worked on the old machine without fail and was a fantastic fix. Any suggestions?
