So my screen does what's in the picture after it powers down or after it goes into standby/sleep

I have tried removing the graphics driver using the amd clean tool then re-installing the driver instead of updating them. Still the same.
To get it working again i have to either reboot or go into device manager and disable/enable it.

Hmm odd one.

The only similar problem I could find on Google was fixed by a driver reinstall, which you've done. In that case they went from the GFx card manufacturer's driver to AMD's unadulterated driver.

Long shot, but have you swapped out the signal cable?

I will swap the cables over. The monitors are the exact same make and model. Will have another go at removing the drivers, might even drop down to a lower version...

Well, I decided to remove all amd drivers using the clean utility then reinstall bit by bit. Dropped down to the recommended driver and not the latest. Worked ok for a while and now the left rather than the right monitor does the static thing.
