I recently installed 18.04 and seemed well. The system detected both monitors I have and all was fine. 2 days ago my screens went blank suddenly, not waking up from a few key presses or a wiggle of the mouse, I rebooted the machine. Now Ubuntu is only on one of these monitors. I performed a fresh install but the issue still persists. I have also downloaded and installed the latest AMD GPU driver from https://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Radeon-Software-for-Linux-Release-Notes.aspx and no change. (slight change in that now I get a very slight flicker now and again)
This particular machine is dual boot with Windows 10 and that performs fine - detecting both monitors. Even the BIOS displays over two screens so am pretty sure this isn't hardware related.
I'm not looking for 3D acceleration or anything on my Ubuntu partition - just two monitors for working.
This kind of thing really is beyond me but some output from some various commands:

Any help or guidance would be massively appreciated!
