Roughly every 15 minutes or so my screen will go black. It will display the screen resolution in the top left corner (almost as if i am switching inputs) and then the image will return. The black screen only lasts for a few seconds but will last longer if i am playing a game (up to 10 seconds). This happens both when i am playing games and doing other desktop stuff (browsing the internet) and does not seem to be an issue with the computer but rather the connection to my display. This problem only occurred after using the rx480 as my graphics card and does not occur when using the hdmi cable through the mother board port while using the integrated graphics on my processor. I have also tried using a different hdmi cable which has not helped.


Any help would be appreciated
