When Mixed Reality Portal is loaded, PC/screen freezes every 2 seconds and Acer hmd is off/black
I've reinstalled MR several times but this problem still persists. MR used to work fine for me about a month ago.
When I switch the ports on my GTX 1080 GPU around (hmd into the screen's previous slot), the hmd starts working but then the hmd starts freezing instead of the screen (with the PC screen suddenly working fine). It freezes consistently after about 2 seconds for about half a second and renders using both my monitor and hmd impossible.
I'm not sure what's happening but only Generic PnP Monitor appears in display adapters but at one point Mixed Reality Headset was there, once second in the list and another time first with the same problem but now it's gone. Perhaps the freezing is caused by Windows mixing the hmd and PC screen up but I'm not sure. I've no idea why it's not detecting the screen at all but the strangest thing is the constant freezing.
My OS build is 16299.251 and my Windows version is 1709.
(Initially I reinstalled my GPU drivers because ever since recent windows updates whenever I loaded the portal my screen would go black but that doesn't occur anymore. I've reinstalled my GPU drivers and the hmd works on other PCs/installs of Windows. Reinstalling my PC is not really an option as I have a lot installed on my computer.)
