Video Freeze with EVGA Precision X

The BMS forums have been an immense help in troubleshooting and learning the F16 sim. The knowledge and patience users have in their responses to posts of all types is impressive, particularly from the Benchmark Sims staff. My thanks in a small way is to offer a solution to an aggravating issue I’ve recently dealt with and solved.
On a new computer, I finally got back to setting up the BMS display extraction to a second monitor as I had with my older computer. In testing numerous BMS and Windows settings I would either get video lockups in the 3D after only a few seconds, or I would get successful 3D and display extraction, but when switching from 3D to 2D, the video would freeze on the exit splash screen. This would require that I force close BMS with task manager.
The video freeze in 3D is one where I could continue to interact with commands and hear sounds such as tower comm. or throttle adjustment, but the screen would just freeze at the cockpit view. The exit screen freeze would allow me to move my mouse around the locked splash screen and be able to hear the ‘chirp’ as I hover over a menu item hiding under the splash screen. I also experienced random crashes to desktop and other oddities which may be related to a number of settings adjustments, but the video freeze was the predominant issue.
Finally I found that turning off the EVGA provided Precision X 16 application has corrected all issues and I now have successful MFD display extraction and sim operation. Since I didn’t see this specific fix in my searches of the forum posts, I hope posting this may help others.

Interesting, I use Precision X for the custom fan curve and overclocking. Have a 4 screen setup with 1 for extracted MFD’s and haven’t had any issues.
