Problem: half screen gets darker sometimes

Build a new AMD pc and I am experiencing the issue that sometimes the right half of the screen gets way darker than the left one, as seen on the image attached.

I tried different drivers and BIOS versions but the problem remains unfortunately.


  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600

  • Motherboard: MSI B450M Mortar

  • Memory: 16GB Kingston HyperX Predator DDR4 3333Mhz

  • Graphics card: Sapphire 5700XT Pulse

  • PSU: Corsair 600W

  • Monitor: LG 32GK650F

  • OS: Windows 10

  • 2nd 'dummy' screen (no image, only for sound but it outputs image to the receiver)

It doesn’t matter in where I am on the pc, wether it is in Windows or in a game, the problem is there, but it seems it more likely happens ingame. I can’t seem to find what would trigger it and the duration of the problem is different every time (sometimes 1 second, sometimes 8 seconds). It also seems that some days it happens more often than other days.

Any ideas or people with the same problem? Thanks in advance!
