Artifacts showing, but only on my secondary monitor.

Hey everyone, I'm running two GTX 570 HDs in SLI, and running three monitors. Monitor 1 and 3 work just fine, however, monitor two seems to be failing. It is showing red pixels on black parts of the screen, and blue and green on white parts. I don't believe my GPU is overheating or failing simply because two of the three monitors work just fine. What should I do?

Don't bump your posts(it's against the rules). Check all your cables - especially the one going to the center monitor. I would reconnect both ends, and see if this makes a difference. Try moving the cables between monitors and see if the artifact follow the cable.

Sprry about the bump, didn't know. Anyway, no. Monitors 1 and 2 are on card 1 and 3 is on card two. I think im going to try a new cable at some point . I've also tried moving the cord to a different output on the card, no difference. Could it be the monitor? Or most likely the cable?

try taking the cable off 1 or 3 and using it in the same slot as 2 and see if the problem switches over to the 3rd monitor. if its still on the second monitor, it is either that the specific slot on where cord 2 is is broken, or the monitor is partially broken.
