    Windows 10

    Delayed display detection after five minutes of being logged in.

    I'm having an issue where after logging into Windows 10 the display goes black and comes back on again after about five minutes. It's very annoying when watching movies or listening to music because of using HDMI. I have the AMD Radeon R9 280 and I'm using the most recent crimson drivers. The display is fine when at the welcome screen and after logging into Windows, but this happens about five minutes after. I think Windows is trying to detect the display. Is there a way to change when Windows tries to detect the display? This is a fresh install of Windows 10 on an M.2 SSD.

    Hi ledgema.

    When this happens what events are being recorded in the event viewer? (Check system and application logs.)

    Hopefully this will give you more info which you can share.
