So i have this problem with my main monitor only (my second monitor ,a TV, is not affected by this) where right when i hit play, start a video or sometimes just randomly my screen goes crazy and displays something like this

I noticed that it started to happened when i got my dvi cable for my main monitor ( i was using hdmi before) and i used the hdmi cable to connect my pc to the tv and use it as secondary display.
I need help to solve this because it's becoming really anoying to restart my pc every time this happens
My pc specs are
Fx 6300
Msi 970a g43
amd xfx 7770
Monitor is a dell st2220L
i also have this setting that i don't know if they might help

Start by making sure there's no dust on the cable's connectors at either the PC's end or the Monitor's end. Also ensure nothing heavy is sitting on the cable (ideally that nothing at all is on the cable).

Well the cable is new, and nothing is on top of it. However going back to the question this screen thing happens when i play videos mostly. Exactly when i hit play my screed does this. Can you suggest anything else that i can check software wise. Thank you for your time

Have you updated your drivers recently? This issue could be caused by Driver corruption.

http://support.amd.com/en-us/download

Download your Drivers from here.

Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Uninstall your current drivers. Alternatively go to Control Panel > System > Device Manager > Display Adapters > Right-Click your GPU and select 'Properties' > Select 'Drivers' Tab > Click 'Uninstall'. Proceed to reboot your system and install the new Drivers you have downloaded.

Well i did what you said and the driver was definitely different, i used the AMD driver download tool and for some reason it showed that i had an apu, which i don't, but i guess is because apu's use about the same chip for video as 7770. In any case, i think this might work so i thank you for your help.
