I have a PC with these specs-
Intel i7-6700 CPU 3.4 Ghz
16 GB ddr4 ram
237 GB SSD
2 TB HDD
MSI NVIDIA gtx 980 ti 6 GB
Evga 850W Supernova G2
Asus Z170 PRO GAMING Motherboard

I use a 4k monitor. I sold the GPU six months ago and have been using the PC at 4k resolution on just the onboard graphics. I never had any problem using photoshop or watching 4k movies on VLC player, or youtubing.
But since a few days I am facing issues with displaying on 4k. If I play a 4k movie the display shuts off and suddenly the resolution is switched back to 1024x768. If I keep youtube active for a few minutes then chrome crashes, same with firefox. I tried lowering the resolution to 1440 and 1080p but same issue. I updated windows, display drivers, even chrome and still the same issue.
I understand that scaling on 4k monitor could be hard for intel 530 HD but this has just started recently. I am thinking to buy a used gtx 1070 for cheap but I want to make sure the issue will go away with a gpu.
