    Left screen turns off 2 mins after boot once every day.

    Hello all,

    Recently I have wired to screens up as dual screens, they were working fine at day 1 but after the left screen (main monitor) has started turning itself off completely.
    As soon as I boot, the screen goes black and I am greeted with the screen startup logo, then "no signal detected" Windows will only pick up the one screen (right monitor) until I restart the screen from the plug. My main monitor is connected via HDMI from the GPU into the screen, and the other DVI to HDMI adapter, again from the GPU, The weird thing is no matter what I try, it will always be the left screen, I have tried:

    Swapping the screen over with another
    Changing plug sockets,
    System Refresh
    Swapping screen power supplies
    installing drivers
    swapping HDMI cables

    I can only assume it's something to do with Windows, but what is it?

    Any help would be much appreciated,

    Swapping the other end of the PSU of the monitors did nothing at all.

    Windows seems to make the "connection" sound when it turns off, also, scanning for hardware changes also switches the monitor back on.
