Describe your issue: 

I got black screen while gaming, no matter what game and no matter what settings I use.

Black screen is totaly random. Sometimes I get it 2 or 3 days in a row and sometimes nothing happens for a month.

Black screen is not dependent on game's graphical usage, since I got it while playing Minecraft once.

Most black screens I got during the game of League of Legends.

Firstly I taught the only fix for black screen is hard restarting the PC (via power button on PC case), but then I found out that if I turn OFF my monitor for like 15-20 sec and then turn it back ON, everything is back to normal.

Monitor is working without any issues on other system so problem is not in it.

My system is not overclocked or anything like that.


Thank you !
