This started happening about 2-3 months ago and I'm 99% sure that this isn't related to the GPU (at least not the chip itself, IDK if the DP interface is dying) as the PC is a laptop and the built in screen functions properly.

The display in question is an ASUS MG278Q. The issue can manifest itself in a 5 minute to 24 hour interval and appears mostly as noisy grey lines (the actual content, even video still displays properly) followed by a black screen. Any menus I open close themselves, but it happens any time the connection is lost . It repeats frequently after the first appearance, and disappears after turning the display off and waiting a few minutes.

Display: ASUS MG278Q
GPU: GTX 1070
