When im in google or doing something on desktop, monitor would just go black for few seconds like i turned it off and on, and then would come back like nothing happened. I got this problem since i got new motherboard and cpu. Monitor is hp 22es more than 1 year old, graphics card is gtx 1050, im using hdmi cable.

Are you running the latest driver for your graphics card?

It sounds like the monitor is losing signal, its either at the monitor side or the GPU.

What power supply do you have? it may be that at times of high load the GPU is not getting enough power.

Simple way to test this would to be to download and run Cinebench - https://www.techspot.com/downloads/6709-cinebench.html

Run the OpenGL test and see if it cuts out during the test.

-Try a different cable.

-Try different HDMI ports.

-Try a different monitor, or any type of display.

-If you have a HDMI port on your motherboard, then try that one too.

-Did you instert your graphics card into the PCI slot properly? Try a different slot. Maybe the slot is broken.

-Did you install all the drivers for your motherboard?

Try to find the source of the problem. There are a lot of different stuff that could be the problem here.
