Has any one seen this error and been able to fix it???
 
I know it has something to do with my graphic cards, and i only get it when i use all 3 monitors. I can use 2, and 1 just fine but it does not like the 3rd one. This happen after i did a windows update (i have not done one in about a year maybe more, for this very reason).
 
I have update all the drivers and reinstalled every thing a few times. I also check the drivers on all my other devices. Windows conforms everything is up to date.
My computer is equipped with 3 nvidia gtx 470 cards ( i did this so each monitor can process graphics on it own). I can use any 2 cards i want with no problems (i try using different orders). Just to note i did think about removing the sli bridge connector this morning on my way in to work and i will try that when i get home. But i have little hope that will work.
 
I am try to avoid doing a full reinstall as it not easy to do with my monther board and it will take me a few days to install all the drivers, and recall the settings (the board is the EVGA SR-X, powerful but you need to know both computers and severs).
 
I did a full system scan for viruses and every thing came up clean (used norton, malwarebytes with deep scan on), i did a disk check, Defragmentation.
I also try doing a restore, but windows will not restore back, but this has not all way work for my system (evern before i switch to a SSD).
Any ideas???

    Sounds like you're going to need to do a fresh install of windows since you can't restore the system using system restore.

    Let me introduce you to the print screen button ;)
     
    I would suggest using DDU to uninstall your Nvidia drivers, then reinstall them using the Custom option and do not install the High Definition Audio drivers.

    Thank you for your suggestions, but i think i got it working with out reinstalling windows or the drivers.  Sorry about the pic, i was SMS someone last night and i decided to post this this morning.
     
    I just removed the SLI bridge, i really did not need it.  I installed it years ago because i was gone to do a different set up with my graphic cards but change my mind.  I left it in there ever since and had it disable by the program.  Not sure if it when bad or it a program error, maybe the 2nd one.  But so far my work station been running for a few hours, with no problems.  Before i would get only 10min before it blue screens.
