    I am running Windows 10 and have 2 monitors and one Radeon RX590 Fatboy video card w/8gigs of GDDR5. My monitors are 2 Viewsonic 27" in. I have an AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Six core. The motherboard is an Asus Crosshair VI Hero. I have 16gigs of ram. I run my CCTV on one monitor and everything else on the other one. What keeps happening is one monitor will change resolution all by its self. It will get narrower and unintelligible. Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    Go to Control Panel > Device Manager > Display adapter. Right click on the driver and choose Update. See if that helps.

    You could also try swapping the monitor cables (when the PC is powered off). You will have to rearrange your screens after you boot into Windows (to keep everything displayed in the same orientation). However, if the problem continues to occur on the same monitor, you have narrowed the problem down to a monitor issue. If the problem "moves" to the other screen, then it's a computer issue.
