GTA Crashes afeter minimized

Question

demosethell

i havent played GTA online for a while, now that i have returned, im facing an issue. Everytime i need to minimize the game, i cant retore it. The screen stays all black and doesnt allow me to do anything else. If i left it for a while, i get a "lost signal connection" on my 2 other displays.
It happens even if i play in windows mode. I Have the latest 1080Ti driver. 

Yesterday i ran "IOBit Driver Booster" and updated every driver i had and it start working, but i had to leave the house, and when i return, the issue was there again.
I Realized Chrome does also crash everytime i have GTA Online open, and i cant reopen it. 

GTX 1080Ti

Windows 10 64Bits Pro.

Instead of minimizing the window just throw it into the background which is what I do.

 

Change it from Windowed to  Borderless Windowed and when you want to look at your Browser/Discord or whatever just ALT-TAB and throw the game behind the current window you pulled up doing and when you want to go back to the game just ALT-TAB again and bring the window back to the front this should help another perk is R* doesn't recognize the game as minimized and won't kick you offline after 3 minutes you'll have the regular countdown idle timer also looking at the TV or Cameras will give you infinity idle time as long as you throw the window behind another instead of minimizing.

 

Hope this tip helps :^:

 

PS: Next time you make a post and your font is black over white simply highlight it and click the little Tx and it will fix it for you.

Thanks for the help and tips, but yeah, when i say "minimized" im also refering Alt Tab. Anything that makes the game not being active. After i return to it, it crashes. 

It also doesnt let me use chrome. Either it crashes chrome, or puts a blank page saying that i dont have enought memory to load the page (i have 16GB). But this issue is just sometimes.
