creating direct3d device failed (80070005)

Error message is shown on a black screen when I want to start playing a video.
The problem occurs only on my secondary monitor, but playing movies works fine on primary screen. I have a GTX960 graphics card and the computer monitor (primary display), a beamer (secondary display) and also a TV connected to it.OS is windows 10 64 bits.

Any ideas?
have you enabled "adjust refresh rate" in kodi? if yes you should try to handle these things only by madVR trayicon in display mode

anyway you should check if this it's happening also with dvdplayer because it could be a kodi problems not related to dsplayer

Thanks aracnoz for your input. I have checked it and "adjust screen refresh rate" is currently turned off. The problem does not appear with dvdplayer, and I can also workaround it by selecting "use in fullscreen (exclusive mode)". However, this selection brings other problems, i.e., on screen controls are not displayed/working anymore and Kodi sometimes crashes when a video ends.
Surprisingly, this problem does ONLY occur when I use my beamer, but not on the monitor or on the TV attached to the same graphics card. The only diffference I can make out here is that the TV and the computer are connected through DVI ports, while the beamer is connected via HDMI. Really strange that.

Thank, spencerjford for your idea. I have windows 10 which comes with directx12. I doublechecked with dxdiag and is says DirectX version is 12.

Btw, I forgot to mention, the error message starts with "madVR reports:". The kodi.log file doesn't show anything suspicious.
