PC and Games crash with Samsung U28D590D 4K and GTX 980 GPU
Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Intel i7 3820 3.60 GHz
16 GB DDR3 @ 666MHz
EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Superclocked
Samsung U28D590D 4K 28 inch UHD Monitor
1TB Samsung SSD
ASRock X79 Extreme4 Motherboard
Xtreme Gear 800W ATX PSU Model: XG-P800 PSU
Recently I upgraded my rig to a EVGA Superclocked GTX 980 and I also bought the Samsung UHD 28 inch 4K monitor. I am running a 1.2 DisplayPort cable from the GPU to the monitor and have drivers up to date, 344.16 from NVIDIA, and I got the monitor's driver from Samsung.
My issues is, when running the monitor in 60Hz, 3840 X 2160, and I start a game, Skyrim for example, the entire machine just locks up once I load my saved data or shortly after, and I lose all display and I have to restart. Interesting enough, I usually have to restart several times for the display to come back. It will show the BIOS screen, and the Windows startup, but will not go into the blue login screen unless I restart it 2-3 times, and eventually it starts up properly.
Some games, like World of Warcraft will startup and run just fine, but suddenly the machine will lock up again, screen goes black, and have to do the restart schenanigans to get it back. If I go 30Hz, and the same resolution, most games seem to be fine and the machine won't crash, however Skyrim still will crash on me.
I've tried using the GTX 980 with my old 1920 X 1080 60Hz monitor and had no issues so it seems to related to this monitor. I tried rolling my NVIDIA driver back to 344.11 also and that had no affect either as well as installing the monitor's driver from Samsung.
I'm really having trouble figuring out what is going on.
Thanks in advance,
