    Source/Record Monitor glitching problem

    I have bought a laptop with Nvidia 970m, put Media Composer 8.0.1 inside it, but the source record monitor doesn't work. Audio can be played in both monitors but the video simply doesn't work. It seems Driver's matter because both monitors have glitching problems. They are not simply black but if I pass on them with another window they start to glitch with that window.

     Does someone know which driver can work or how fix this problem?

    Start with a driver version that's as close as you can get to the recommended or qualified version listed by Avid in the readme or supplied in the MC installer package. You may be able to use later versions but you'll have to just try them and see if they work and revert to an earlier one if you have to.

    The Readme file has a section for the nVidia control panel settings; I do agree that it's a driver issue, and You should be able to spot a working driver by testing releases prior to the MC release You're running. On certified laptops the working driver used to be the manufacturer supplied one, not the generic nVidia driver; don't know if this still applies, nor if it's true for Your device.

    If your laptop has Optimus (hybrid) graphics solution, try to enter bios settings and switch to discreet graphic card only. Then install drivers from C:\Program Files\Avid\Utilities\nVidia using clean install option. That should help.
