    i got a p65-e1 vizio 4k tv back in january. i use it as my pc moniter. i'm running a dual boot 7/10 pc. windows 10 works fine on the tv. win 7 keeps crashing. i have tried troubleshooting this thing for months now including doing a fresh install of windows. even with just windows 7 and no extra's(except drivers) installed it still crashes. i am fairly certain that it is something to do with this tv. i didn't have this problem with my old 1080p samsung. i have messed with the pc and have it where win 7 is stable most of the time. any idea what's going on and how to fix it? win 10 is not my favorite os so i'd really like to get win 7 back to working. btw, the tv is connect directly with an hdmi cable from the gpu to the tv. btw, right now it mainly crashes on some video games and any kind of web video(i.e. youtube). but if i don't tinker with it then it will crash just anytime. doesn't even have to be doing anything.
