    Duplicate These Displays Bluescreen. Crossfire HD6970s


      I have 2 6970s running a dual monitor setup, I've had this for a long time and it's been working fine when I just extend the displays. I wanted to duplicate them when I watched a movie or something, so I went into the Screen Resolution in the control panel, (accessed via right click menu on the desktop) and changed it to "Duplicate these displays", when I first did this, I was running the screens perfectly well with both plugged into the DVI ports on 1 card. The screens went black and flashed a few times, before bluescreening and inevitably NOT reverting the display settings. Now, when I launched the PC, I would be fine up until I loaded windows, on the login screen, there was artifacting and weird graphical errors everywhere, but I managed to login, when I logged in both screens lit up and the PC crashed as it did before. So, I tried running just 1 monitor and it worked just fine, but when you run 1 monitor you cannot set what the computer should do if it were to detect another, so when the other is plugged in, the same crash ensues. I eventually got around this by plugging one monitor into the HDMI, and another into 1 specific DVI port (when it was in the other one it would refuse to extend the displays, with the error: "unable to save display settings"). But now with this botched semi-working mess I tried to duplicate them again, this time I had learn't if it messed up I could press "ENTER" to click revert, which I wouldn't be able to see. This didn't work, the computer crashed, but I couldn't see it crashing since the monitors were telling me they were: "unable to display this video mode, change display input to 1080 x 1920". I assume it was the same blue screen error. Now when I loaded the pc up I had all the same problems as before, the crashing, the artifacting, the same issues. I am currently coping with just 1 monitor right now as I type this. I know this is specific but please help.


      Things I've tried: Unistalling then reinstalling latest official drivers, crying, trying to change the display settings in safe mode (doesn't show multi-monitor options), resetting BIOS <- I was desperate at this point, and trying to change it without drivers installed, which again just didn't show any options, taking out one of the cards (made no change).
