Black screen when on Youtube

So, randomly whenever I have FireFox or IE open I get a random black screen for a second or two then it comes back on, I only ever get this when browsing the internet, never when gaming or anything else, I can't narrow it down to anything since I recently installed Windows 10, I have a GTX770 (HDMI) I have also checked Event viewer and there is nothing there about it.

(I have tried running Firefox in safe mode and it still does it)

check this:

  • see if there are updates for your graphics drive drivers

  • disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)

  • disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin See also:

If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select Submit Feedback... or use this link. Your feedback gets collected at, where a team of people read it and gather data about the most common issues.

Nope nothing same result, it's only my primary monitor if I turn my second one on nothing happens to it, drivers are up to date, by the looks of it, it happens in all browsers, event viewer shows me nothing either, I am really at a loss here...
