    Windows 10

    Main monitor gets messed up when streaming.

    So when I installed windows 10 originally on launch day I found no problems until I was hit with BSOD_VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE a week or so later when trying to watch a stream.

    Rebooted, continued using the OS with no issues aside from a sporadic TDR FAILURE, until about the end of August/Early September.

    I got hit with a very similar issue where opening a stream would result in my monitor getting all messed up while the video played. My second monitor remained fine and was usable. The sound also continued to play perfectly fine. It would rarely crash the computer and would just remain this way.

    This issue persists for as long as the video plays. Sometimes I can pause the video which will cause the screen to return to normal only to go back to being messed up if I hit play again. Other times the opposite will happen. I will open the stream (youtube, twitch.tv - doesn't matter. Neither does browser), have the issue come up. Pause. See no change. Hit play again and THEN the screen will return to normal.

    I looked through this place and many other boards extensively. Found that the issue could be with my integrated graphics (Intel HD 4600). The way I originally fixed the issue is up in the air as it sort of stopped working after I rinsed and repeated a handful of methods a dozen times, but what I think I did was use DDU to remove all of my drivers (INTEL and AMD) Downloaded the new intel HD graphics driver. Restarted my PC. Used DDU to once again clean out the drivers (someone suggested having the HD graphics driver before my GPU drivers was important). Downloaded the GPU drivers and left my windows update as manual.

    My streams worked fine until I had to Reset This PC recently for unrelated issues. I did a clean install. Didn't carry over any files. I let the drivers download automatically through windows for just my GPU and everything worked fine for 3 or so days until I got the same monitor crash when streaming a video. So I tried to recreate how I solved the problem except that this time I don't have an Intel HD driver at all and when I try to install it it says that I don't have the hardware. If I use the Intel Utility, it says I don't have a download. So I'm stuck. I don't know what to do next. I can't find any forums where the problem is specific to streaming so I figured I'd leave a post.


    So I got the Intel driver installed eventually. Needed to download some drivers via my motherboards website first which made it possible to install the HD graphics driver.

    Now I'm just in the process of messing about with removing and installing to try to get it to work again. It seems to happen most often with twitch. I'll post another edit if I make progress but to be honest I'm just mindlessly doing these things over and over and probably won't remember the process I manage to fix it with, if I can at all. Any advice is still appreciated. It is definitely a driver issue. I just don't know how to get it stable again.
