    i just switched back to MP from vista MC because of drivertrouble with vista.
    cant tell you how happy i am to finally be able to use MP (have always tryed
    but somehow have had hardwaretrouble eversince i bought the PRV500).
    but now i have this very annoying problem...

    MP runs perfectly until i drag it on my right screen. while running on that screen
    (secund from my primary card (gf7900)) MP causes BOTH - the first and secund
    screen of that device to go black for 1-2 sec. - it happens ~ every 5 min and keeps
    me from working...

    i assume the problem is somehow related to my vga-cards.

    i am using the 9700gs as primary and a 7200gs as secundary card - running 4
    displays with them.

    all i really need is MP working on my primary screen (runs perfectly even in fullscreen)
    and to be able to drag it as windowed app onto my right screen (produces the blackout).

    i tryed to use dscaler or ffdshow - installed the rc1 and the svn (was suggested to me in
    the irc-channel), setup a profile in my nvidiamanager for MP (AA and other filtering set to "off")
    ,monitored the taskmanager to see if some other application is causing this and... got no
    ideas left...

    i am really frustrated right now - i became used to work with 3 displays (really speeds things up)
    but have to suffer poor 3d grafic with vista because i cant install the newer driver versions
    (bluescreen - i assume that 2pcie-cards working not sly-mode are too uncommon for nvidia:)

    on xp i can work with my screens, use 3d apps but... cant watch tv while surfing or writing
    because of those blackouts (i had about 30 while while writing this and watching the news^^)

    thank you for any ideas.
