For whatever reason, ( This happens only sometimes) my screen goes dark for like 5 seconds and i noticed this when i was watching a movie using Windows media player and when i went in fullscreen, my screen went black for a few seconds. Then it started to happen when i open a youtube video. I haven't noticed any other problems with other video players other than Windows media player and youtube.


My GPU is a EVGA GTX 960 SSC
Driver version: 355.60

Sounds like a driver issue, Try to see if you have the latest drivers. And if the card is overclocked try toning it down just a bit and see if it persists.

It wasn't either of those things, but im gonna wait for a driver update and see if that will help.
