i recently obtain a new i7 station with win10 x64 installed. since it is a workstation for 3d works, an ATI firepro w5100 is installed. when running single display, it is perfectly fine, but for duel display, i started encounter problems with photoshop.
first off, since w5100 only has 4 display ports, and my second display is a vga, i have to enable to the motherboard display, so my 22' LG is plug on the w5100 and my olf vga is plug on motherboard, when i start photoshop, it came up with a warning windows that states that the display card is not support and when i go to the preference > performance, i see that photoshop detects no gpu on my system... i usually don't care if photoshop need to draw things from my onboard gpu, but the photoshop started crashing after 5-10 second i select the text tool in this condition... is there anyway i can enable the w5100 gpu while the dual display is on?
f the issue only occurs with Photoshop text tool, It's possible that some of the fonts on your computer are responsible for this issue. Please take a look at this https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/troubleshoot-fonts-photoshop.html and let us know if that helps.
hi akash the photoshop runs 101% fine when i only have 1 display on (the 22' LG on w5100), can this still be a font problem?? thanks!
I believe it is a Graphics card related issue.
Have you checked under GPU control Center/Switchable graphics which card is the primary graphic card?
