Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have dual screens on a desk top. Now my 2nd monitor has a blue screen and has cut out boxes that come on sometimes like a quilted set of patches. Not too large-these cut out boxes- but annoying during a fastpaced work-day.


Answers :

Hi gibbo,

please try to switch the main monitor from the secondary and see if you still have the same issue. if you have the same issue, then it is the monitor you are having problems with. if not then it means that either the video-out slot for your 2nd monitor is bad or the drivers for your video card needs to be reinstalled.
