Thanks Nawcom...I'll try it.....on my second display off of this card I can't even scroll or swipe to the other screens....kinda frustrating.

no luck....a little smoother but the second monitor still can't scroll between different desktops.

any ideas are greatly appreciated.

The new NVIDIA kexts are causing some interesting issues. I've verified it on my PC with my 2 GTX 770s (GK104, uses NVDAStartup.kext to inject needed values, NVCAP, etc) which didn't surprise me since I've had to deal with issues with it in 10.9.2, though that has to do with the new IOPCIFamily kext and was able to get around that and get them working again. But when I installed it on my laptop (GT 525m) which uses Chameleon's GraphicsEnabler which has always worked fine, I had the same issue - the laptop display was gone by the time the desktop loaded up. For GTX 770, DVI #1 is detected, DVI #2 is not detected at all, and HDMI is detected fine. This behavior matches both GTX 770 cards. Before all three get picked up just fine for both cards.


I could plug in my second DVI display to DVI #1 on my second GTX 770 and have them detected fine with the new kexts, but that will screw up using SLI in Windows for gaming, and I'm not willing to move around cables in the back of my PC whenever I boot OS X or Windows for the sake of things working. And of course there's no fix like this with the case of my laptop with GT 525m losing its screen.


Anyways, this kind of behavior usually happens when the injected NVCAP value is incorrect and as a result not all display ports are correctly identified. I verified that the NVCAP values as well as the rest of the injected values match up with GTX 770 and GT 525m in both 10.9.2 and 10.9.3 beta. Rolling back the NVIDIA kexts to the 10.9.2 versions fixes the display issues.


If anyone is having similar issues, the easy fix is to roll back all the NVDA* kexts your card uses to 10.9.2 release versions, though that isn't a good long-term solution. I made sure performance wasn't affected by rolling back. OpenCL and VDA still work fine as before. I'll see if this persists in the upcoming beta releases. Also be sure and mention it here if someone is having similar NVIDIA issues, because if I'm the only one having issues, then I guess I'm lucky, hehe.

Do you know which kexts specifically?  My GTX 580 is really jerky now.  Kind of frustrating...
