    Unique Problem


    I'm running four screens on Windows 8 Pro, 64-bit. Attached you will see my computer specs including the video cards (dual Sapphire Radeon 7850) and Intel Core i7.

    The problem I'm having can be seen in the screenshots. The title bar area turns to some Windows 7 looking interface and Photoshop gets mixed with its own interface and Windows. The buttons in Photoshop's UI appear when I hover over them, and then the stay visible. This happens frequently; always when I have Chrome and a Chrome icognito window open. I have all the recent drivers and Catalyst Control Center which I re-installed yesterday. I have also swapped out the video cards; the cards are fine.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    The first image attached is a screenshot of my set up which is as follows:

    LEFT ▬ 1600x900 Acer S200HL (Analog)
    RIGHT ▬ 1600x900 Acer S200HL (Analog)
    CENTER ▬ 1920x1080 Acer S230L (This is my primary)
    TOP ▬ Samsung 46" @ 1920x1080 (I rarely have this one on)

    try removing the catalyst drivers completely and just run windows generic drivers.

    If all works fine with the generic drivers then you may need to go down one or more versions on your catalyst drivers.

    Ive had a similar issue with 2 screens where I had to use the mouse to 'repaint' my icons by waving it around.

    went with an earlier driver and all is well now..

    Thanks. I'll try this. The computer is now crashing and restarting at least once a day -- only when I'm away from it (and likely when the screens go into the default power saving mode).
