    So I have a dual monitor setup and it was all working fine then when I accidentally opened steam into big picture mode my monitors resolution went all wacky. Now ordinarily the two monitors resolution is 1920x1080 (main monitor via HDMI) and 1440x900 (secondary monitor via DVI), but when I plug both in either my main monitor goes black and the screen only shows on the second monitor or it gives me a resolution of 3300x2100.

    I don't know how I caused this issue and hve no clue how to fix it.
