screen freezes whenever I touch my mouse pointer to the left hand edge of the screen.

    Question

  • odd bug.  If I move my cheap logitech mouse pointer to the far left of the screen (actually touching the border) the whole system freezes for about 10-15 seconds  before recovering.  gets annoying everytime I hit the side of the screen by accident and I have a 10 second break...  anyone else having this issue?

  • Managed to solve it... but till don't know what caused it.

    Uninstalled Nvidia Drivers from control panel and did a BIOS reset

    Will do some more experimenting and see if I can pinpoint the problem.

    Windows Developer Preview (x64 efi)

    Asus P8P67 DELUXE motherboard

    Intel i7 2600k

    2x Zotac 470 graphics cards

    16GB Ram

  • Are you still getting the split-screen behavior when moving to the far left side of the screen?

    No, either nothing happens or it freezes for up to a minute

    Will give them a go when I come home from work.

  • I have been using the new beta drivers all along so that probably going to be a dead end unfortunatly.
