Describe your issue:
Hello, whenever I open video with VLC, or just try to watch a Youtube video, the primary monitor goes nuts. Doing this too many times makes both monitors go black, mouse freezes and about 15 seconds later computer hard-shutoffs itself.
After asking help for this many months ago, I found something interesting. I had plugged in a Quadro FX 1700 in my system to run my other monitors, leaving only 1 monitor for the R9 280X, I had no screen glitches after that.
Sounds great! Well.. the Quadro is very old and has very outdated drivers. Whenever I tried to launch ME2 it caused a BSOD, I recently removed it since I am going to upgrade the GPU hopefully soon, also because I wanted to play ME2.
Was changing resolution settings and tried if Virtual Super Resolution could increase quality, turned the resolution back to normal for comparison and the screen glitched out.
I have had no glitches, problems whatsoever when I only had 1 monitor plugged in.
Most likely a bug or hardware issue.
