I just got a new monitor the other day, it's the same as my first one and is a Gigabyte AORUS AD27QD; basically two identical monitors. For some reason, whichever display is not my primary display keeps turning on and off again randomly, sometimes this is triggered by opening certain apps such as Messenger on that display. The behaviour is very similar to constantly changing resolutions in a game, I get the input message on my display once it turns on. The only fix seems to be just restarting my system till it doesn't happen. I ruled out the connections being loose as this only happens on whichever display is not set as the primary one, hence it has happened on both. I'm using the included DisplayPort cables for both monitors, and both have the exact same settings.
