385.69 Driver has disabled DVI input of one of my monitors.
Howdy, Sorry for not putting this in the 385.69 thread, but it's apparently devolved from discussion of the driver to people bitching about how SLI is dumb/no it's not. Speaking of which, I'm running a system with two 970's in SLI with 3 monitors. Two are connected to to the "primary/first/top" card via DVI and HDMI, and one to the second via DVI. After updating to 385.69, the system still detects the monitor is connected, but no signal is being transmitted to it via the DVI ports. The monitor still receives a signal if I plug it in via the 970's displayport or HDMI port, but DVI doesn't seem to work anymore, even though the monitor is technically detected. Here's a screenshot of the control panel to see what that looks like: https://i.imgur.com/A2rqm1u.png Also, after the update, the monitor in question (an ASUS), stopped being listed in the Nvidia Control Panel as "ASUS-######" and became "Ancor Communications Inc ASUS - ######". I know this is due to the EDID in the monitor itself, but I assumed that the change in how the monitor is detected might have some relation to the lack of a DVI signal. While this isn't a huge problem, obviously, it's less than ideal, since the HTC Vive I have is rather finicky about working when more than one thing is plugged into the HDMI/displayports. As in, it doesn't work at all when anything but it is plugged into DVI. Annoying, but what are you gonna do? I've attempted disabling SLI, looking for new monitor drivers (none), and all that other obvious junk, but nothing's worked. I'm on the verge of rolling back the driver, but with the looming release of Battlefront 2 in a couple days I expect Nvidia to release a new gameready driver soon and was hoping that might solve the issue, whatever it is. Cheers. Update: After resetting my system, display ports no longer transmit a signal to the monitor, either. I'm just going to roll the driver back.

put all 3 screens on the main card, you have the dvi ports to do it going by the image at hand. also the square being dark instead of green means that it isn't currently active, which you would set up on the 'set up multiple displays' page rather then the windows display properties.

Thanks very much.
