    Ah Ha! I am fairly sure it is a driver issue. Reinstalling drivers... starting to sound like this was my fault
    Hopefully this resolves it. I'll post back later.

    So I had all the right drivers, but kept messing around with them anyway. I might have uninstalled a particular driver or installed an updated one, don't remember. I have solved my problem, anyhow. Thanks to all who suggested great ideas. Take care, both my computers are running well.
