Running a Flex 6600, Windows 10 machine, SmartSDR, DDULTI, DAX, CAT, HRD all running simetaneously.... Rig has been running flawless on a single slice ( I have never ran multiple slices). I decided to try using a 2 meter transverter this weekend. All is working great for both FM simplex and FM repeaters.  I am using 3 slices... one is tuned to 20 meters using slice A and my Steppir Antenna thru antenna 1. The 2 meter connections are using slices B and C one is setup for simplex and the other is on our local repeater. Again all working great. However after approximately and hour or so my monitors (dual monitors) go black as if they lost there signal... I can still hear audio but within about 10 seconds of the monitors going black the CPU goes into a frozen mode as anything that is connected to it stops working and I am forced to reboot the CPU and to play it safe I also reboot the 6600. I was unsure if the transverter setup was a culprit in this issue so I have now been running only Slice A on HF and no other slices open. So far the 6600 has been running again as normal for the past 3 hours. 

Any Suggestions? I am suspect the graphics card could be getting overloaded with the multiple slices running?

Your Flex can demand a lot from your graphics on your computer. You could change frame rates slowing down the water fall,,or even turning it off. this may help with CPU power needed.
