Issue with plugins crashing in Ableton when using two monitors

I have an ongoing issue with newer NI plugins crashing Ableton in Windows. I use two separate displays in "Extend these Displays" mode, and if I launch a plugin, say Raum or Massive X, and open the plugin interface, the plugin window is white and the DAW crashes. It's obviously a graphics issue. If I use only one display there is no issue, and if I use older NI plugins like Massive, or other manuf. there is no issue.

Anyone know what's going on?

    @tornpaper5 Are you using Nvidia GSync? Please try disabling it as it's known to cause issues.

    Also found this on Reddit:

    "I'd just like to say I had the same problem a bizarre solution. I found through some digging that certain high end motherboards have gaming overlays which interfere with certain UI's, specifically sound enhancements for some reason?

    Anyway, I uninstalled some software that came with my ASUS motherboard namely Sonic Studio and the VST problem disappeared straight away.

    This isn't specific to ASUS motherboards as the original post I saw, the guy had an MSI board with the same problem and uninstalled some of their sound enhancement software and it worked for him."


    Is that of any help?
