Display capture shows nothing


New Member
So I recently got a new computer and I'm interested in starting to stream. I've used OBS in the past on my old computer and it worked fine, but now, when I add Display Capture as a source, I still have a black screen. I've updated my drivers, made sure it's using the Nvidia GPU and not Intel's built in one, and all the other recommending fixes but still nothing. I even uninstalled and reinstalled OBS. Any suggestions on how to fix this? I've included my log from today incase that helps.
