View Full Version : full screen video crashing GL551JW w/ dual Dell Ultrasharp U2715H

Hi everyone,

I've had my GL551JW for about 4 months now and I ever since I upgraded my monitors my system wont stop crashing under certain circumstances. I think it's pushing the graphics card beyond it's limits.

I have dual displays setup with laptop closed
2x Dell UltraSharp 27" U2715H, one via displayport, one via HDMI
Resolutions on both 2560x1440. I think max res on this GTX960M is 1920x1080 although everything runs fine normally and is crystal clean.

Basically if I have two fullscreen videos or one game full screen and a video on the other it will crash my system in about 5 minutes. It goes into a sleep state in which I can power it back on and it resumes, nothing has closed.

All other times it runs perfectly. I multitask at home with many programs running all day and I never have a hiccup

Could this have something to do with the on board intel 4600 graphics?

Please help!!

Yep, that's a lot for a 980 to drive, let alone a 960!
