Heavy Lag on Second Monitor

  Steven Jon 20:07 29 May 2017

Hi! I have a dual-monitor setup. I seem to be having a major lag problem on my secondary monitor. The lag seems to be subjective only to a few video websites, though. Mainly Youtube. Netflix and Hulu work perfectly fine. This happens whether or not I have multiple programs running. I have also tried different web browsers, all with no luck.

I'm not super tech-savvy in this type of stuff. I'm not sure if this could be caused with a problem from my monitors, or something from my system or hardware. My main monitor is a 1080p Dell E2414H, and my secondary is a 4k Dell S2817Q. My computer has an Intel i7-5820k CPU and a Geforce GTX 1070 GPU, if that helps.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
