The display works fine most of the time, the situation described in the title only happens when in-game, and only sometimes. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

The display is AOC Agon AG271QG in 2560x1440 144Hz
The graphics card is Asus TUF RTX 3080Ti

Could you give a list of all your PC components?

Could be as simple as a loose connection or something deeper like a power supply issue.
Gigabyte Z690 AORUS PRO
i7-2700K
Asus TUF RTX 3080Ti
32GB DDR5 6000Mhz G.Skill Trident Z5

Well at least you have a reputable power supply! How old is it? Were you having any other issues with your PC before the driver update?

Have you tried removing and reinserting your GPU? What about all the power connectors both at the Power Supply and the GPU?

The PSU is brand new. I checked all the connections. I am puzzled because the issue doesn't have regularity. Sometimes when I start a game it happens, but many times it doesn't. And if I can start the game OK it doesn't happen mid session, it's only when I start a game. So I suspect it is more likely to be a software problem, that happens when I start a game, but I have no clue what it could be.

Hmm What games generally cause your issue?

It does sound to be more of a driver or software issue though with a 3080 you have support for basically everything
