Hi,

Sometime last year, I started experiencing black screen flickers on my displayport monitor and green flickers on my hdmi monitor. I have an AMD radeon rx 5700, a ryzen 5 3600, msi b450 tomahawk max II. These flickers mostly happen when I am playing a game. There are also times when this can happen when I'm just browsing the internet but both screens go black and I get an AMD driver timeout has occurred error. It also happens when I move the cables in the back of the computer connected to the graphics card. I have tried using ddu and amd cleanup utility in safe mode and still didn't fix it. I'm starting to think it might be because I'm using the wrong cables? I checked the gpu specs and the outputs said there is 3x displayport 1.4a and 1x hdmi 2.1. Is this true or does that not matter?

Be sure that your GPU is not overheating. Its usually a sign of overclocked memory but I don’t think you overclocked. The other possibility is bad memory, I hope this isn’t the case here.
