Hi , since few days ago my screen randomly flickers or flashes . the first time this have happen I jst have disconnected my earphones from computer and have slightly touched the DP cable , I have thinked well maybe the cable is faulty or badly conected to the GPU , after have wiggled that cable a couple of times I noticed that only moving the cable hard almost disconnecting it makes the screen flicker , anyway I changed the cable for another . and it stopped for a day or 2 , today I was only connecting a usb drive and the screen have flickered again ... I recconnected the usb drive , no flicker , I tried touching other usb cables , and the screen gone black for a couple of seconds , I wiggled the DP cable and flickered again , reconnected the DP cable and wiggled the cable again , no flicker ... So what the hell is happening ... I have no clue what is just happening , seems to be for some random reason ...

Anyone here have any clue what´s the issue ?
