Since a few days ago I noticed that one of my monitors - the middle out of the 3 - has started going black for very short periods of time randomly. I haven't noticed a pattern or anything, it can be random but I have noticed that it mainly happens when I'm gaming. The screen just turns black for around 2 seconds, then goes back to normal. I think this started happening sometime after I updated my NVIDIA drivers but wasn't sure if that could have an effect on it. I did make sure that the cables were in correctly.

It might be a power surge, it happens if you connect too many power hungry devices into one outlet via Power Bar/Extension. Try to isolate the monitor and to keep a separate outlet for it. It also could be the VGA cable, less shielded VGA cables Receive interference from other cables or devices near them.
