Editor goes black with Direct x12/RT

Hello everyone, hope y’all are safe out there.

I’ve been facing an issue that the whole editor either goes black or replicate a random window on top of everything else. I tested it and it only happens when I enable directx12 / RayTracing. On ‘‘normal’’ projects the engine is working fine. According to some forums, it is because of the Nvidia drivers, but I installed multiple versions and the problem still happens.

I uploaded a video so it can explain a little better what the issue actually is: Black Screen Issue - YouTube

My setup:
I7 8700K
32 gb RAM
RTX 2080TI

Don’t use DirectX 12, Unreal it is not working, and it is not your graphic card, it won’t work.
