    Ok, they're all strange but this one just appears to be affecting the surface of the desktop.

    Any idea what does this? System specs not updated. two 7950's on an eyefinity setup.

    does it do it with just one card?


    Tested each card on it's own for this?

    I have heard of cursor corruption with these cards as well, so I am guessing that it is just a driver issue, similar to the problems with the 5-series cards.


    However, it would be prudent to verify if it's restricted to Crossfire mode, or maybe a specific card..not many users with Eyefinity, so it is possible others have this problem, and it's just seldom reported.



    If my theories are correct, AMD needs to change hardware design to fix these problems on the desktop with multiple monitors.:eek:

    I really hope that this is not the case though. Please keep me updated on this.

    I checked on break, it cleared up the desktop going to one card. I'll post back here if it happens again with two.
