Question Dual Monitor Fullscreen Issues

Dec 23, 2019
Hi Everyone,

When I have anything playing in fullscreen on my second monitor, like twitch or youtube, and I open a fullscreen game on my primary monitor, the second monitor goes black and I can still hear the sound, I just can't see any video. Is this a common issue that people have? I've had a dual monitor setup for years and never experienced anything like this.

For reference my GPU is the RX 5700xt and I know they've been having a lot of driver issues. My drivers are up to date.

One monitor is 1440p, one 1080p, the 1440p is 144Hz, the 1080p is 75Hz, and both are Freesync enabled.
