Monitor goes black only when playing minecraft until i re-plug the VGA cable

May 17, 2018
Hello guys, so i've recently built a ryzen 3 2200g rig with spec:
RAM: 8 GB Team Elite DDR4 (1 stick)
MoBo: Asrock a320M HDV
PSU: 450W

so i keep running into this problem ever since the rig was first built, when i play minecraft lan with my little brother, every 5-10 minutes into the game my monitor will go black but there's still signal. it won't display anything until i re-plug the VGA cable and then it will work normally again, either port (mobo port, or monitor port) works. The computer will still run fine, music will go uninterrupted, only the display. The weird thing is it only does this on minecraft and not other games like Shadow of Mordor, Skyrim, The Sims 4, Tekken 7, and other GPU / RAM intensive games.

I can bypass this sorcery by alt-tabbing to google chrome once in a while to make it "rest" from minecraft.

Any help will be appreciated, thanks!
