Resolved Question

Second monitor works in bios/boot, doesn't work in windows.

(Just a heads up, I'm probably seen a lot in this section asking all kinds of things. I will be here for a while as every computer I build/buy is a disaster.)

So, I built my new pc and started to see a weird problem, every time I boot my pc the second monitor works in bios/boot but then it switches to my first one and the 2nd one isn't even detected. It used to fix itself by putting the pc to sleep and waking it up, but that doesn't work anymore.
I don't think it's a driver issue as when I put this gpu into my old pc all works fine.
GTX 750 Ti
Ryzen 3 2200G 3.50GHz
8GB Corsair Vengeance RAM clocked at 2400MhZ
Gigabyte AB350 Gaming 3 MOBO
CXM 550 80+ PSU
Here's a speccy: (servers don't work so I uploaded it to a site)

It does sound like a driver problem.

Indeed they are old.

The drivers are from last year since the card is so old it had problems with newer ones on my old pc. I will try installing them on this pc and I'll update on how it goes later.

What works for me.

Is the GeForce Experience app. Since that app came out I no longer hunt for Nvidia drivers.
