So I have a dual monitor setup and about a week ago my second monitor, right after booting the system, will just go black after a few seconds of being logged into windows. Its not shutting off but just going black. if i restart the monitor it will work again for a few seconds and then go black again. Its connected to my graphics card (gtx 980) via a DVI cable.

I've already looked at the power cable and even bought a new DVI cable. After a while it will start to work properly but its usually around 30 minutes which is very inconvenient.

Thanks for any help!

Please list your specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

Which version of the OS are you on and which driver version are you on? You might want to list the make and models of both your monitors and see if changing the cables to them changes your experience of the issue.
