MSI R9 390 multi screen flickering when moniters go to sleep.

Question asked by woody6977 on Jan 9, 2018

Hi, I am new to the forum and using the search tools I was able to find close but not exact comparable issues to what I am going through.


First my system Config:


Intel i7 - 4770 (EVGA  - Air Cooled).

As-Rock Fatality Z97 Killer MB.

4 x 8GB DDR3 (1600mhz) Corsair Dominator RAM.

2 x 512GB Crucial SSD RAID Striped.

4 x 2TB WD Cav. Black HD RAID 5.

MSI R9 390 8GB Graphics Card.

3 x 24 inch Dell Ultra sharp 2mp (1920 x 1200) Monitors.

Steelseries Gaming Keyboard.

IOGear Dual Laser Wireless Mouse.

Windows 7 Pro. 64 bit.


I upgraded from an older Power Color R9 285 2GB Card. I have the new rig setup to never have the hard drive sleep.  The only thing that sleeps is the 3 displays are set to go black after 15 minutes of ideal.  The monitors sleep for about 10 to 20 minutes then monitors 1 and 3 start flickering like strobe lights.  I have tried new drivers, different monitors (Samsung), even unplugging the USB mouse and keyboards and it still does it about 80% of the time.  I am not using Eyefinity.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
