    Screen flickers, then it logs me out. Multiple monitors


    Just reinstalled Windows 8.1 and can't figure out what the deal is. I have a four monitor setup, and all of this worked perfectly before I reinstalled. I actually remember dealing with this issue before, but I couldn't remember how I fixed it.

    Basically, with two monitors, everything works perfectly. The minute I connect my third monitor, it's like all the screen flicker, and then I get logged out and back to the start screen.

    Anyone have this issue? I've tried updating nvidia drivers but it doesn't help.

    Nevermind. Driver update fixed it. Thought I was up-to-date but apparently not.
