    What are these weird black boxes on my display??


    This box randomly showed up on my computer yesterday. At first, it was only on my right monitor, and now it is on both. I was initially able to eliminate the problem by changing a game application from fullscreen to borderless. poof! the box on the right disappeared. I reloaded my computer and it appeared on BOTH monitors!

    I can't figure out if it is a display issue, or maybe an application running in the background that is causing it. Any ideas on how to figure out what the issue is?

  4. What are these weird black boxes on my display??

    Issue with black screen, dual display, ATI Integrated GPU

    Hi,

    I suggest you to follow the below methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1: I suggest you to go to device manager and disable the display drivers, check whether the issue persists or not.

    • Press Windows + X keys and click
      Device manager.
    • Click to expand Display adapters, right click the second adapter and click
      Disable.
    • Restart the computer and check whether the issue persists or not.
    • Repeat the same steps to disable the first display adapter and check if it helps.

    If you find the issue is with anyone of the display adapters then, I suggest you to update the display drivers from the manufactures website for Windows 10 and check if it helps.

    Method 2: I suggest you to follow the steps form the below article for
    “Black Screen” issues and check if it helps.
