    Crimson 16.1 "no signal"


      Hi guys, just joined this forum to see if any help is available on the following problem.


      I just upgraded to Crimson 16.1 from CCC 15.11.1, used DDU to perform a clean install etc.


      The problem I am having is that when I run Steam Big picture on my second screen (TV HDMI) and play Fallout 4 after roughly 5 minutes both screens go off and show "No signal" This probelm never happened when using CCC 15.11.1 so it must be Crimson related.


      My primary monitor is an Asus MX279H 27" LED Monitor with IPS Panel connected via HDMI

      My second screen is a Samsung 32" H5500 Series TV connected via a Display port to HDMI cable (direct no converter)


      My system spec is:

      Skylake I7 6700K@4.6ghz

      Asus Maximus Hero VIII motherboard

      DDR4@ 3000mhz

      Asus Fury Strix 4gb

      Windows 10 64 bit


      I have tried everything I can think of in Crimson but to no avail and at this time I am completely stumped how to resolve the issue other than having to resort to reverting back to CCC 15.11.1


      Any help is much appreciated, Jay.

          Suggest reverting in your case...the Crimsons have stripped out user control of resolution from inside the driver GUI, which may be the problem.  But I will say that DDU can sometimes be destructive and I don't use it myself as the regular CCC/Crimson uninstall routines work perfectly for me.  I'd suggest reinstalling the 15.11.1b CCC drivers, making sure they run like you want them to,  and then installing the Crimson 16.1's right on top of the CCC drivers--I did and it worked fine with no problems.
