I have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Display Driver

Dual Monitors both were on resolution 3840 x 2160 (both recommended)

I needed to update in order to play WoW today (Error driver out of date, fixed when updated driver). After the update, one of my monitors has a max of 1920 x 1080 (Recommended). I can revert the driver, but then I can't play WoW.

I also tried downloading 'GeForce Experience' and getting the latest driver from there (as appose to Windows finding it for me). Still the same issue.

Having 2 monitors with different resolutions is really annoying and I don't want to go back to 1920 x 1080.

Edit: I will also mention the text seems blurry on the smaller resolution Monitor, although it could be my eyes adjusting.

Both monitors are the exact same Samsung monitors.

Edit 2: Issue found Just tried the 1 problem monitor by itself, the issue occurred. Tried switching converter (I'm using Hdmi -> DVI and Hdmi -> display port) and it turns out the issue only occurs with the hdmi -> DVI converter.

I will buy another converter tomorrow and see if it gets solved.

I managed to solve my issue by no longer using the Display ports of the GTX 1080. Instead, I am using both the HDMI and DVI inputs.

This video is how I found my answer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rfe0jYSpUg

At 3:15 he says he fixed the issue by using DVI instead of the Display Port. In my case I'm using DVI and HDMI, whereas display ports are giving me a problem.

Edit: It's an HDMI 2.0 port, which the monitor supports 60HZ, 1980x1060 or 3840 x 2160 30HZ.
