2ND monitor is black

Hello when I woke up this morning I started up my computer and the 2ND monitor was black, it would also randomly start flickering yesterday. I have updated my drivers. When I unplug and then plug in my HDMI cable it flashes my screen saver then goes black. My settings/menu buttons also do not show up on the black. The Monitor is 4-6 years old. I can also use Gyazo to take a picture of my second monitor and see everything I put on it.

Right, you can still use print screen or whatever to take a pic of your setup and both monitors will show up. Windows still thinks you have 2 good monitors, but it sounds like the 2nd one is shot. Flickering is a tell tale sign it`s dieing, most likely.

Try to test it on another pc.
