New PC, just built last week.
This has happened 4 possibly 5 times. The four times...I have VLC media player open, computer freezes for 1-2 seconds, then audio resumes but image on each monitor becomes frozen. Tried turning monitor off and on again, didn't work. Nothing I can do but press reset.
The 5th (3rd, really) time happened when I was afk for 10-15 minutes. Came back and monitors were 'no signal' mode. I forget what was running then... but the other 4 times I definitely had VLC open. It doesn't seem to be reproducible. I tried going back to where I was on a couple videos when the freeze happened but it didn't happen again...so I don't think it's corrupt video files. I used these two monitors on previous PC and this didn't happen... probably something to do with new PC's video drivers.
