My screen goes black for a second before and after video playback and any format (online and offline). I use a dual monitor setup (HDMI and DVI) setup. I the problem only happens on the HDMI monitor. I had recently reinstalled windows and there was no issue beforehand.

I use a Iiyama Pro Lite E220hds (HDMI) and Acer AL1916w for the DVI. If I revert to one screen for the HDMI the problem is still present.

Thanks for the reply,

It's everything. VLC, KMPlayer, Youtube (FLASH), Quicktime. I did notice, it only happens if the HDMI screen is the primary display.

Armoured - what about your machine specs?

Video\GPU specs?

Have the same problem over here.

Currently running with gtx 680, 3.5 ghz intel i7. Screen goes black in a second when starting any kind of video, including watching youtubeclips aswell as local video clips.

Any ideas? I have the recent update on the GPU.
