Hi guys,

I have dual Samsung U28E590D setup and whenever I play fullscreen web video (Youtube, twitch, etc..) on the 2nd screen, the screen turns green with slight pink and also enlarges to the point that only top left portion is visible.
See attached.
It's not a monitor defect as I just exchanged it today thinking it was a hardware issue.

Your graphics card is old if that is what I see in system specs. Did you try connecting it to another graphics? I have 3 monitor settup sometimes I connect UHD TV with one UHD monitor and FHD monitor. When I change resolution on some of monitors everything goes in a mess for few seconds. Sometimes it stays in mess :D...

I didn't update my spec sheet. My graphic card is GTX 780 which is a few years old but it should be good enough to support both monitors.
