Question Since connecting new monitor, both screens go black for 5 seconds when gaming ?


Oct 26, 2014
Hi guys,

I bought a new monitor (ASUS ROG Strix XG27AQM)

Since I conected this monitor I notice that when I start a game both monitors (I also have an Acer Nitro VG0 VG270UP ) goes black for 5 sec. When I ALT+TAB while gaming I have the same Issue. If Im watching a movie or browsing the Web the screens are fine, the problem only ocurrs while gaming and since a Multitask a lot this is really annoying. With my old ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q this didn't happen. Can someone please help me?

Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64Bit
Intel Core i7-9700K
MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Sea Hawk X
MSI MEG Z390 Ace

Latest Windows and Nvidia drivers.

Without know what the PSU is i would say that is your problem. I had a EVGA 650w G2 with my 2080 ti and had the same issue while gaming, switched to a 750w G2 and it went away till i stated playing New World which causes all sorts of other issues.
