Question Monitors getting black screen repeatedly ?

Dec 25, 2022
I've recently built a new computer after years of using a very old one. Have an MSI Geforce 3080 Ti ventus 3X which has:
  • 1 x HDMI 2.1
  • 3 x DisplayPort 1.4a
Have 3 identical Acer KG241Q monitors. 2 are hooked up with hdmi from monitor to a hdmi/displayport adapter. one is straight hdmi hookup. The 2 that are hooked up through adapter get alot of black screen "resets". Monitor will go black screen, then come back to picture. Power doesn't shut off or anything, just a black screen for about 2 seconds, then back to normal. Main monitor hooked up through just hdmi does not do it. Through right clicking, display properties, those monitors are both at 60hz as well and I can not raise them , where as my main monitor(hooked up through hdmi) is at 144 hz.
Would I be correct in assuming it has something to do with the hdm to displayport adapters? And if that is the case , can I just run straight displayport cables and should stop the black screen "resets" and get me my 144hs refresh?
