    Hello,

    I have various Geforce gtx9xx cards, like 980Ti's, 980's, etc... All share the same problem with any driver released in the last 2 years which is why I still use 390.65.

    I use the following config:
    Win 10 pro.
    Pri screen: 43'' TV running 3840x2160 @ 60 hz via HDMI
    Secondary screen: 19'' 1280x1024 via VGA/analog
    Tertiary ''screen'': Sony DA2400ES AV receiver at 1280x1024 (Cloned from secondary screen) via hdmi See: https://i.postimg.cc/RZvRPPMQ/screen-config.png

    Why do I use this config? Because I use the AV receiver for audio (6ch LPCM, only supported via at least HDMI) and I can't use HDMI passthrough for my tv because it only supports 1080p max.

    Using ANY driver over 4xx.xx, coming out of sleep/standby mode, my TV has a fully Green, Pink or Grey screen until I plug my HDMI out and in again. (note, the analog screen is fine and the av receiver also looks fine as it plays audio thus is receiving a video output). A clean boot is fine and doesn't give any problems, I always use standby mode for my pc though. I have tried various GPU's (of the gtx9xx series), HDMI cables, and all 4 HDMI ports on my TV.

    So far no problem, 390.65 runs fine and is stable and doesn't have this issue. Now I have a problem, because I want to play RDR2 but need a newer version.

    Is this bug known? How to fix this, I can't play RDR2 now because it forces me to use a newer driver but any newer driver (I've tried more than 6 versions over the years) breaks my UHD video output to my tv when waking up the pc...
