Screen flickering black for a few seconds while gaming

Question asked by senryu on May 31, 2018

Hi, I built a new system recently, I had no problems whatsoever and everything is updated to the latest driver, but when I play some games the screen goes black sometimes for a few seconds, resulting in a bad gaming experience overall. This I noticed happens heavily playing Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising and also Destiny 2. It happens also in other games.


Everything is at stock regarding overclock etc, so that's not the problem.

Updated to drivers 18.5.1, reinstaller visual studio packages, did Scannow and the registry repair. Still flickering sporadically in-game.
