Just installed my razer raptor monitor, and I have the HDMI and display port plugged in. The display was in auto and for some reason no desktop icons were showing and no apps were able to popup they were running but couldn't display. So instead of auto display I switched to HDMI and it worked for all of 30 seconds where I got black screened and then I got my display back but then this back and forth keeps happening, so I switched to the display port and found out that's the display where no icons show and the apps will run but not display themselves, I have the USB-C installed but not plugged in as I don't have a place to plug it in I bought an adapter and will plug it in when that comes in, I do have the USB extension plugged in but I have no use for it yet. I am running on windows 10 64 bit. I've made sure all the cables are secure. I have no idea why it's doing what it's doing. Any help or feedback is appreciated.
