  • Provide a detailed description of the issue you are experiencing and the steps required to reproduce the issue.

          I just noticed it recently when I'm playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and NBA 2K18, the display randomly disconnects for a few seconds then reconnects accompanied by the disconnect/reconnect sound. The issue seems to be randomly happening and I observed when I'm only browsing using my Browser or just playing music via Spotify, the issue is not happening.  I tried before replacing my HDMI cable, the issue gone for a few months and came back just this few days ago. Temperature seems normal 40C when browsing, ~55C when playing.
