    Monitor flashes black screen while gaming

    Update: After more toying about with settings, I have isolated the issue to Freesync. Once I disabled it through Radeon Settings and the monitor's OSD, the issue stopped.
  2. Hi everyone I just received a new monitor (a ViewSonic VX2758-C-mh) today and it is giving me issues. Whenever I launch a game, the screen goes black after 1-2 seconds. This only happens if the game is in fullscreen or borderless mode, windowed mode runs fine. I have no issues when I connect my PC to my old monitor (an AOC G2260VWQ6) via both HDMI and DP. Only games on Steam (I've tried Cities: Skylines, Domina, and PUBG) cause the problem; full screen video on YouTube and Floatplane play fine. My parts list is below, along with my BIOS version, graphics driver, and what I have tried so far to fix the issue. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

  3. Hi everyone, long time lurker, first time poster. I changed the VRAM allocation in BIOS in my friend's computer from 256MB to 2GB. After I rebooted the machine, it no longer outputs video. Specs are: Ryzen 5 2400g APU Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR4-2666 (single channel) MSI A320M Grenade Motherboard The only change I made to the bios was the vram allocation. The machine was working before the change, but now it won't display anything, not even the MSI Grenade splash screen. Also, the power and HDD LEDs no longer turn on when the computer is powered up, but all fans spin, including the cpu cooler. So far I have tried: Restart display Different display input Different HDMI cable Different display Used VGA cable Different VGA cable Clear CMOS Reseat RAM, 24 pin power, cpu 8 pin power Connected RX480 to machine using known good DP cable and monitor I'm hoping it isn't an issue with the CPU or motherboard, but those are seemingly the only possibilities left. Could it have somehow reset the BIOS to the factory default which isn't compatible with the 2400g when I cleared the CMOS? Any thoughts? The computer is only a couple months old so everything should still be under warranty if it comes to that. Thanks for your help!
