    Dual monitor question/problem (scrambled/checkerboard display)

    Level 1

      I'll begin with system specs.

      Windows XP Professional
      Intel Core 2 Quad Processor
      Matrox Axio LE
      PNY Quadro FX-1700
      Four GB of RAM

      Everything is working fine computer side. I've tested and bench marked all hardware components, re-tested and re-bench marked again, got a coffee, repeat process...etc. Everything is updated and patched, all the drivers are playing nice with the system, absolutely no errors...BUT!

      The computer is able to load Premiere Pro CS3 and everything is fine except that I am not able to view anything out of the "source monitor" or the "program monitor" (the video feed is scrambled - picture below) ... however the external monitor displays fine from the Matrox Axio LE card. If I open a project in standard mode which does not access the Axio card, everything works fine and all of the displays do exactly what they are supposed to do --- they display fine. Strange thing is when I click on the timeline that I have displayed on my second monitor, I get the color bars within the source monitor and the program monitor but when I click play I get the scrambled feed.

      Any help is greatly appreciated and I thank you in advance...
