XPS 15 9530 HDMI Monitor Blanks when Maximize Window

I recently started using my XPS 9530 with an external monitor via the HDMI output and I have found a strange issue. The desktop will show up fine on the external monitor, but when I open an application window on the external monitor, the screen will sometimes go black. If the application window is small enough, everything will work fine. However, if I maximize the application window or even expand it to the point where it takes up more than a certain amount of the screen, the monitor goes black until I resize the window to make it smaller (which is difficult to do when I can't see anything on the screen) or drag the window off of the HDMI monitor to the built in screen of the laptop. This happens with all applications.

I have tried this with 3 different monitors and 3 different HDMI cables, and the same issue occurs every time. Using the mini Displayport output rather than the HDMI output does not have this problem. 

Any ideas/suggestions of what could be causing this and how it can be fixed?
