Monitor loses signal but PC Remains ON

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This issue started to happen around Feb 2020, my screen would randomly go black (no signal) when playing games or just browsing on the Internet. The PC still runs but I'm forced to hold the power button and perform a restart. 


I've used another 1070 to iron out the issue but the issue still remains the same. I've also received another PSU from corsair as they've said it was defective but I highly doubt it's the PSU as they sent a brand new replacement. On event viewer I see "kernel power 41", I've had this before with my previous power supply and also with the new replacement. 


I come across this issue once every 2 days even when my game runs fine, it could be themotherboard or a driver issue but I still cant find a solution. If I anyone knows the issue I would highly appreciate your input. Thank you for your time. 


CPU: I7 4960X

MOBO: ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition 

GPU: 1070 Strix

Ram: Corsair Dominator 16gb

HDD: Samsung 850 Pro, 2x Seagate Barracuda 3TB

PSU: Corsair AX1200i

Damn. Well, if you tried another gpu and the problem was resolved, I guess your GPU is kaputt. Unless there's a problem with a cable. Are the thermals ok and does it happen only when you're gaming or anything that would make the GPU sweat? (rendering for example..)

Be patient.

Just because a new product has come out, it doesn't mean that your thing is suddenly performing worse than it was when you bought it.

Try using DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) for getting rid of all previous video drivers and your current video driver (select Nvidia drivers to be removed and possibly Intel integrated graphics drivers or AMD graphics drivers if you have them on your system or have had them on your system in the past). Then go to Nvidia's website and get the latest drivers for your GPU.
