Windows 10, 3 screen, GSYNC, crash when waking from sleep mode



  • I recently went from 1 screen to 3 screens on a NVidia 1070 card. All 3 monitors have GSYNC. Every time the computer woke up from sleep mode, it crashed immediately. I tried switching in and out of NVidia Surround ( merging all 3 screens ), the problem still occurred.

    I disabled f.lux and everything started working again.

    Here's the test result:

  • Are you able to find an update for the NVIDIA driver? There are definitely 2019 ones available.



  • Thanks for the hint !
    Updated the NVidia drivers and that fixed the problem, along with many other odd flickering problems.

    I thought I had updated my drivers recently by asking GeForce Experience to do it, but turns out it just triggered the driver download, waiting for a second confirmation to do the installation.
