So i just built a new PC. Everything is going well besides a black screen for 2 seconds while im playing a game. it happens every few hours, not often. But it still irritates me.

I have a Ryzen 7 3700x

MSI RTX 2060

27” alienware 240 hz monitor

and a brand new display port cable so theres no way thats the problem. Its secured in there too.

Anybody else have this problem?

My PC ASUS MB with a EVGA 1050Ti was doing that when it was being O/C too long. When I went back to default settings(no O/C) I no longer have the black screen.

this might be a stupid question but what does O/C mean? lol. it might be a fix, i’ll try it out if i find out what that means lol. im guessing overclocked but mine isnt overclocked

I went into the NVIDIA Control panel and turned off all the "automatic" selections and picked all the NVIDIA Vs CPU decisions. I also slowed down the refresh to 30 HZ

I have a Gigabyte Z270x-gaming K7 MB, Gigabyte 1650 super GPU, 4K monitor, 32GB ram, SSHD, 750 PS, I7

Seems to have stopped the black hole for 2 second problem.

My apology for the delay with a reply to your question "O/C".
Yes "O/C" does stand for overclocked.
