Recently I connected external monitor (acer 144hz) to my laptop (ASUS TUF GAMING F15) through HDMI cable. The first 3 minutes it worked perfectly, but soon after a lot of strange things began to happen:

-I couldn't open file explorer or any other app
-It seem like the screen froze, but i could move the mouse and the shortcuts were interacting
-Even if I could open any program/game it looked like the files weren't reading etc.

Everything changes after I plug off the monitor. Everything works normal and seem fine to me.

Specs:

Nvidia RTX 3060
Intel i5 11400H
16 GB RAM
Windows 10 Home 19044.1645

First step would be to update both video drivers.
