Constantly black screening for 1-3 seconds?


Motherboard: AB350 - Gaming 3

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600

Memory: 8GB DDR5 (2x 4GB)

GPU: Radeon RX 580 Nitro Plus

Driver: Adrenalin Edition 18.7.1

OS: Windows 10  x64bit

Monitor: Acer K242HL 24" LED HD

Whenever I try and play or open a game, mid way through, the screen will start flickering or black screening for 1-3 seconds then turn back on. This also happens even if it is turned on in the background. It is fine when i normally just browze the web or general maintence usage. This problem was reccently solved with the previous windows update however, it has came back again. I figured that it might be GPU problem as my other hardware are fine in temperature and functionality. My driver is up to date as well. I have multiple troubleshooting using different programs but non of them seems to have detected any problems.
The frequency of the black screening is very inconsistent, sometimes its very often while other times, it rarely happens regardless of how heavy or light the requirement of the spec for game is.
The game I played and had this issue occur is:
League of legends
Blade and soul

For Honor
Has anyone had similar experiences or give me any guidence on how to solve this issue?

I have the same issue but with a XFX RX460 4GB, try downclocking yours.
