This issue is only happening in a few of my games so far. If I'm playing in full screen my monitor will turn black and I can't see anything. The weird part is it only happens when I'm looking in certain directions or while I'm in the options menu. I can still hear the in game audio. If I switch to windowed mode the issue goes away, however, I encounter the same issues in windowed full screen. I've been looking all over for a fix, but haven't found much of anything. I'm playing on 1920x1080 which is the native resolution of my monitor. Also, I don't have VSYNC turned on.

I am using a two monitor setup. My main monitor is an Asus VG245H, and my secondary monitor is an Asus VS239H-P. This problem I'm having only happens when I'm playing the game on my main monitor. I tried it on my secondary monitor and had no issues. My main monitor is about a month old and my secondary is roughly 2 years old now.

I was on the newest recommended update for my graphics driver. I tried updating to the newest optional update which came out yesterday, and I still have the issue. I have also tried an older driver and encountered the issue again. I'm not really sure what to try at this point.


I just tried using DDU then reinstalled the newest recommended driver. I'm still encountering the problem, however. One thing I did notice though, is that when I was in safe mode to run DDU, my main monitor was black. Once I opened a program on my second monitor I was able to see the duplicated screen on the main monitor. I'm not sure if this was due to the lack of drivers, or if it is due to whatever is happening.
