My monitor is about 2.5 months old and my PC is 5 weeks old. It's an ASUS VP228H.

I only noticed this today but whenever I go on Reddit and start scrolling really fast and come to a specific video in the "Instant Karma" subreddit my monitor would go black for a second before returning to normal. I tried the same thing on Facebook, Twitter, Quora and Instagram and nothing happened.

The video in question is this one: https://www.reddit.com/r/instantkarma/comments/hqocor View: https://new.reddit.com/r/instantkarma/comments/hqocor/iguana_isnt_in_the_mood_to_play/


Just to be safe I reconnected my VGA cable and opened up the same video but I still got a black screen.

I don't know if this has something to do with my monitor or if it is Reddit related?

test with just the 8gb ram stick?
Actually I've tried with both ram sticks yesterday and the same thing happened. Only on that video. I've had no issues with other Reddit video and I've used HBO, Netflix and Youtube today without any issues.

By both I mean that I tested both.

try different browser? turn off the hardware acceleration in the browser?
Just tried it in Edge, I didn't get the black screen. Hardware acceleration is on in Chrome because Youtube sometimes drops frames when it isn't.

Should I dismiss it as a Chrome/Reddit issue?
