Blank screen with cursor if DP and HDMI connected at the same time?

I have a 980 Ti with an ASUS PG278Q connected via Displayport. If I connect my Samsung KS7005 (Nordic KS8000) HDTV via HDMI two, sometimes the ASUS gives me a black screen with just cursor on it while the Samsung shows picture. Sometimes this goes away if I use Win+P and toggle between settings a few times but often I have to unplug the HDMI to fix it. The display that goes blank is always the ASUS while the Samsung shows picture as normal.

Since the cursor shows up on screen it doesn't seem to be an issue with the displays or cables, Win 10 just refuses to draw the picture on the ASUS (primary display).

Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Sounds like a driver or Windows problem.

Have you tried using the free software called DDU to uninstall your Nvidia drivers in safe mode? That will clear out any leftover garbage from previous driver installs. Then just reboot and install the latest driver from Nvidia.
