screen randomly goes black for a few seconds

Whenever I'm playing a game on high-medium settings and my monitor will randomly turn off for a few seconds like 2-3 then turn back on like nothing happens. This happens quite frequently. I just updated the drivers for the GPU 2 days ago and that didn't help. Not quite sure what to do next.

My computer specs are

GPU: Radeon RX 580 Series

CPU: AMD RYZEN 5 2600 six-core processor

RAM: Crucial Ballistic Sport LT 2666 MHz DDR4 x2


I'm also running Windows 10 x64

You are probably running too high of a resolution or refresh rate for your display cable. Try turning down the refresh rate or getting a higher gauge cable.
