I have recently built a new PC and recently I have run into the problem of my displays randomly going black and saying "no signal" only to turn back on a second later. This is obviously very annoying, but what is odd is I have only noticed it happening when on Google Chrome, I have never had my monitors lose signal when gaming or anything else. But for whatever reason when watching YouTube or doing college work on Canvas, my monitors will randomly turn black and say no signal then a second later turn back on. So I am not sure if this is a problem directly related to Chrome or if I have an issue with my GPU.... Any help would be appreciated! (Even typing this thread out it happened)..... Here are my specs:

MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Edge AC
MSI GeForce RTX 3070 Gaming X Trio 8GB
G.Skill Trident Z Royal Series 16GB (2 x 8GB)
Corsair RM 750X 80+ Gold

Could be power related state or a bug with Geforce driver itself. Try prefer maximum performance in NvidiaCP and if that doesn't solve intermittent signal issues with little GPU usage then try a different Geforce driver.

Have you tried another browser also? Perhaps look at hardware acceleration settings in Chrome.
Was about to try a new browser and I was just idle on my desktop downloading a game and it did it, so I am not sure if it is the browser anymore I just seemed to notice it when using chrome. Which is very weird that I still have yet to experience it in a game....

Might still be power related. Set preference in NvidiaCP and try another driver. 3xxx is new and drivers could be bugged who knows, won't know until another, even if it's a few iterations back, is tried.
