Hey, the headline tells my problem. It happens since a week maybe and started after playing c&c 3 Kanes wrath. I played it befopre and it didnt happen until a week ago. Now it also started to happen while playing The Surge and I dont know why. Updated my driver software after it happened, didnt change anything. Unplugging and plugging my second monitor does sometimes get a black, a noisy or the normal picture. It seems random which one happens.

My Specs are:

Windows 10 64 bit pro professional

MSI B75A-G41 Mainboard

Radeon R9 290 X, Software vers. 17.5.2

Intel Core i5-3470 3.2 GHZ


Main: S27E390, HDMI

Second: S242HL, DVI-D


If you need any other informations you are free to ask.
