Hi,

I have a Philips Gaming 242G monitor running at 144hz plugged in with display cable to my new PC with ASUS RTX 2070 Strix OC gpu. Monitor is 5 years old i think. Now i'm getting some problems that i never saw before. Last few days i get a horizontal gray line across the screen, line shows up at random spot at random time and stays there for few seconds then it follows up with screen turning off and on two times. This happened at random and maybe two , twice or three times one day and sometimes not at all. I'm running latest NVIDIA drivers 419.67. I don't know if it is the GPU or monitor dying. I had clean install of drivers and i had gone thru few GPU benchmarks without any problems. I really cant pinpoint the problem when it happens so fast and at random , cant even take a picture of it. Any ideas?

PC spec:
CPU: Intel 9700k
GPU: ASUS RTX 2070 Strix OC
Motherboard: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-F GAMING
Memory: Corsair 16GB 3000mhz
Monitor: Philips Gaming 242G5DJEB (link)
