    VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE when extending monitor on HD4000




      Answers (N/A if not applicable)


      Provide a detailed description of the issue

      When I try to extend display to two external monitors, the screen begins to flicker, and eventually BSOD appears saying VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE occured

      Does it fail every single time, or only sometimes?
      If you can offer a % rate please do.

      Each and every time, with only one exception: if I set both displays to 1024x768 resolution prior to extending display, this does not happen(tried 2 times, both times it worked).

      Hardware (HW)

      Brand and Model of the system.

      Lenovo G580 laptop

      Hybrid or switchable graphics system?
      ie Does it have AMD or NV graphics too?

      Nope. Only Intel HD4000 inside.

      Make and model of any Displays that are used to see the issue (see note2 below).
