Bad video after using second monitor

Post by pfd27 » Tue Oct 10, 2017 9:43 pm

Hooked my tv to my laptop with hdmi to watch a movie. After unhooking it and rebooting the video on the laptop is
horrible and is full of horizontal lines. I use the open source amd drivers. How would I go about diagnosing?

Perhaps you might start by plugging it back in to the TV.
