Dirt Rally Crashes during splash screen when launching using eyefinity

TIDG3YTIDG3Y Member New Car Smell
When i try to run the game without eyefinity on 1 monitor, it works absolutely fine. But when i activate eyefinity for my 2 monitors, the game instantly crashes during the logo splash screen, and i can't seem to stop it. I've updated my drivers, i've verified the game data, but i don't know what else to do. Does anyone have any advice? 

AMD FX-8350
Sapphire R9 390X
12 GB RAM

Monitors: LG 23MP65 and LG 23EA63

    This is NOT Dirt Rally but a Windows 10 update issue and Microsoft knows about it and you have the recommend fix.

    Nope, i deleted that update and stopped automatic updates and it still crashes. I have also tried other games with eyefinity and they all work fine.

    Did you delete the My Games\Dirt Rally folder too for it to re-detect your hardware? Maybe a cache verification might help as it's isolated to DR.

    So, i deleted the dirt rally folder, and verified the cache, re-downloaded some files, but it still crashes after the splash screen. I don't get any error or "dirt rally has stopped responding", it just disappears.

    Are you launching DR from the desktop icon or within Steam? Did you uninstall anything recently?

    From steam, and apart from that windows update, no i haven't uninstalled anything.

    Are you using the latest Crimson drivers?

    Would having my monitors have different inputs affect it in anyway? Because 1 monitor is dvi-d to hdmi and the other is hdmi to dvi-d

    Nope, I'm playing like that and no problems for me.

    then i have no idea what is causing it to crash. I have tried starting the game without eyefinity and then activating the second monitor, but that results in an instant crash as soon as i try to change the resolution or go fullscreen.
