    monitor freezes but computer doesn't

    I have 2 monitors right now. They are Samsung S22D300 and AOC 2269W. I have the AOC as the primary.

    At some points when I am on my computer, they both freeze. I then tried unplugging the primary one. The second monitor (Samsung one) works just fine. I then plug it back in and it still frozen. This happens when I alt tab from Minecraft.

    I have the lastest drivers for my graphics card, which is Geforce GT 720.
    Any help?

    I found this under my event log right before my computer booted off.

    The description for Event ID 1060 from source Application Popup cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.
    If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.
    The following information was included with the event: 
    the message resource is present but the message is not found in the string/message table
    I'm not sure if that helps.

    Monitors don't freeze but drivers for GPU can. Try reinstalling/ changing GPU drivers.
