Don't Try This At Home

Before spending a couple of grand on a whole new computer, I thought, why not try updating the drivers?  The video drivers for whatever reason aren't getting updated by Windows, so why not install them directly?

Turns out the answer is, because then your mouse will stop working.

If you have a Radeon graphics card and a multi-monitor setup and one of the monitors is off - or detected as off because it's switched to another input - your mouse will act as if it has four broken legs.  This apparently is a known issue dating back to at least 2018.

The solution is to disable HDCP.  Because of course it is.
