My monitor keeps going black screen but after a few second it will come back to normal

Start with updating the Nvidia drivers to the newest, if that doesn't work DDU the drivers and install them again. If the problem persists try a different cable.

i've experienced this, it was fixed when i changed a display cable

have u tried a different cable?

Things I need help with:




I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general




Products I like:


Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite


Products I hate:


Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares


Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)


be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend


Companies I hate:


Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)


Personal Blacklisted Companies:


Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones


Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

One thing I'd at least try is uninstalling the graphics driver. If the problem still persists even on the generic windows graphics driver, then it's most likely a hardware problem. (Faulty monitor, or a bad cable (as Moonzy suggested))


If you determine that the display driver is causing issues, you could try lowering the refresh rate in the adapter properties. See if that helps at all.


This kind of goes without saying, but you should also check to make sure the graphics driver is up-to-date from the manufacturer.


I hope you're able to solve the issue.

Don't forget to post your solution when it's resolved.

How old is the monitor?


I had a really old Acer AL1706 that would flicker occasionally despite the power LED staying green, no amount of VGA cables worked. Eventually, it died due to a capacitor failing.
