Once I plug my rift in my monitor goes black.

I've been doing some searching and I can't find anyone with the same problem. Everything used to work find but out of no where it's stopped working. 
So here's whats happening:
I start my pc with no issues.
I plug in my oculus rift head set into my HDMI port on my graphics card and after 2 seconds my monitor will go black and say no signal.
The headset still works but I'm unable to use my computer at all, I can't even use the desktop viewer in the headset. 
Once I unplug the headset my monitor returns to life. 
Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? I am running rift 2.0 and the problem doesn't happen if I opt out of the beta but I would really like to continue using rift 2.0 because it's so much better.

    what operating system do you use, rift 2.0 works best with windows 8 and 10 i think

    and it could happen if you have 2 monitors plus a rift connected into your graphics card

    Thanks for the reply. I'm running windows 10 with the latest updates and I've already unplugged my seconded monitor but the issue still persists.
