Multimonitor Issue (1 monitor starts black)

Recommended Posts

One problem I have when running the DX10: when running the triple monitor setting, my far right monitor always starts off with a black screen. To fix it I have to turn it on and off again so the picture appears or go into a menu option temporary like FSUIPC and go back and then it turns on again. It's quite annoying, that's why I bought the DX10 2.11 Fixer in hopes it would fix it, but it didn't.

 

Anyone else have a workaround this?

 

My 3 monitors are all the same resolution 1920x1080, combined to be 5760x1080

 

Graphics card: EVGA Geforce 780 TI, driver updated.Please assist, thank you.

The fixer deals with shaders and so I am afraid has nothing to do with the way monitors are handled.

 

Have you read the dx10 how to guide from nzfsim? - I wasn't aware of any combined monitor issues though  - to Fsx it surely should present as a 5760x1080 monitor?

 

It possibly sounds like a detection (power state) issue with the GPU?

 

Check your fsx.cfg for any extraneous entries but I imagine any solution would involve changing something GPU related.

the thing is with dx9 the monitors run normally, only on that dx10 preview on is when I encounter this. Back when I had two monitors, this would also happen where fsx starts on my second monitor rather than the primary.

this sounds like a fsx.cfg config mix-up,

backup your current fsx.cfg; then delete the active cfg and let fsx rebuild it,

 

does this happen if you undock a different window other than the MCDU?

 

you mentioned you have 3 monitors;

does this happen if you move the undocked window to any of the other monitors? or just the one?
