Describe your issue:

  • Since upgrading to 17.10.2, the monitor connected through the active DP to HDMI adapter only displays blue, I've also updated to 17.10.3 with the same issue. Did a clean install as well as used the AMD cleanup utility to install both drivers fresh.
  • Reinstalling 17.10.1 or below results in the monitoring returning to normal operation. The monitor works fine during boot, but once Windows loads the screen goes blue.
  • I have tried the adapter and the monitor on other computers without issues, like I said, I can downgrade to anything lower than 17.10.2 and everything works fine.
