I have duel monitors and have been using them fine for years. Recently, when I have any application full screened OR borderless windowed (Dota 2, Youtube running on Chrome, Netflix app) then once i click on my other screen my computer freezes for a second, audio can cut out, my mic on Discord will lag for others. This will happen going back to the full screened task too. This hasn't happened anytime in the past. I updated windows and updated my graphics drivers to see if either of these were the problem, but none of them worked. Just to try and mess around and see if it worked I even overclocked my GPU with MSI afterburner to see if that would change anything either negatively or positively, and nothing noticeable changed. If anyone has any idea what the issue is, I would appreciate any insight
