Second screen fault

Question asked by jimmytheboarhunter on Feb 2, 2018

Hey all,

 

Having an issue with my second monitor. After restarting the computer the second screen ALWAYS comes up like this:

The only way to fix the issue is unplug the second screen HDMI connection and then plug it back in, at which point it goes back to normal.

OS: Windows 10 Pro 64bit (fresh install)

GPU: AMD R9 Fury Sapphire Tri-X

Driver: 18.1.1

 

Primary monitor is 75Hz 2560x1080 connected via DP with Freesync enabled.

Secondary monitor is 60Hz 2560x1440 connected via HDMI.

 

Had this problem intermittently over the last year varying with different driver releases. Had it start again with 18.1.1, did a fresh install of Windows and the problem remains. About to install 18.2.1 to see if it makes any difference but it's getting pretty annoying.

 

Any information on the cause and any possible solutions would be greatly appreciated!
