Question PC crash when gaming with two monitors

When playing a game (Fortnite, CS: GO etc...) and I have both monitors connected to my GPU it randomly crashes after a while I have an RX 580 Nitro from Sapphire and an AMD FX-8350 on a Gigabyte motherboard. I'm not sure what to do to fix it because it's not my pc I have 14gb ram and a 650w PSU and I can run both CS: GO and Fortnite at once when using only one monitor. It doesn't crash when I have both monitors on and I'm only on google chrome or word and I would really like to be able to play a game and have a second monitor on as well. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thank You.

CPU: AMD FX-8350
Motherboard: Gigabyte 970A-DS3P
Ram: HyperX DDR 3 8GB / 6 GB (unbranded 1x4 1x2)
SSD/HDD: Kingston 240gb / WD Blue 500g
GPU: Sapphire Rx 580 Nitro + 8GB (blue version)
PSU: Corsair vs 550
Chassis: Corsair Carbide Series 275R
OS: Windows 10 pro

What are you monitors? - are you running freesync at different frequencies from one another ie 1 monitor at 144hz and the other at 60hz?

Updated AMD drivers?

Are you running the game in windowed mode apposed to 'fullscreen' while gaming using the second monitor?

Or TBH - it could be just down to the fact you cannot do it with your GPU + CPU setup... maybe try not to multitask and stick to doing one thing with your gaming/productivity? - sorry...
