video hang on 3rd monitor with SSD drive
Posted on 2013-01-07
I have 4 new Acer vx4618G desktops, these are core i5 processors, 4GB RAM, windows 7, dual video support on board. i have installed OCX vertex III 120GB SSD drives in all in place of the standard drives, and have added a HP USB NL571AA video adapter for a 3rd monitor. these are all using the factory preloaded image.
issue- the computer and all 3 displays work great, power on to login screen is less than 7 seconds. however, if i open an IE window (IE8) on the HP usb monitor the page stays white and never opens, if i right-click the screen the menu will pop up and the page will populate, but the menu never goes away. if i drag IE to another screeen it works fine. if i drag it between the usb screen and another screen the usb screen stays white while the other side populates.. resource monitor shows no spikes or high memory, processor, or disk usage. all other programs function as normal.
what i have done- these are all freshly imaged, i have removed every single program except for windows itself and the necessary drivers. i have used 3 different drivers and all have the same issue. i have reimaged using both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of windows. I have 11 of these adapters, it is not related to the adapter itself. I have multiple older core2's running 3 monitors with no issues at all.
what i discovered - if i put the standard hard drive back in with the exact same image IE works perfectly on all 3 screens. TRIM support is enabled, AHCI is enabled on all active channels in the bios. BIOS is completely up to date. With the standard drives the boot time is 5x's longer than the ssd and the computer functions slower all the way around, but it does work.
I have come to the conclusion that there is something going on with windows 7 and the SSD, just not sure what. this issue is affecting multiple machines. i will try an EDGE Boost Pro SSD as well. Any other suggestions?
