With my two 5870s I have a weird problem in crossfire. I have two screens a 24''' LCD and a 37'' LED TV.

When in crossfire if I play video on the second screen it gets some odd artifacts of black(ish) horizontal lines across the bottom half of the screen (not seen a problem like it before). The problem will occur with flash content and VLC, so I think its hardware driver related.

Only solution I've found is to not have the cards in crossfire and plug the TV/Screen into different cards for watching stuff. My drivers are only a few weeks old now.

Annoying, any thoughts?

I think this was a driver problem. I tried a load of things but I think what worked is probably using Driver Sweeper to remove all GPU stuff then reinstalling a newer driver.

Hi! Your question wasn't on topic for Gaming, so I migrated it. It lost the checkmark in the progress, however. – badp May 5 '11 at 9:16
