Anybody had a similar issue?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So this is the 2nd time this has happened (last time was around a fortnight ago), I changed the display port cable to a brand new one afterwards, and I switched output ports on my GPU (GTX 1070). Only fix I found, albeit temporary, was to slap it a little. It only stays like this for about 30 seconds left untouched. I'm 99% sure its not the GPU as it doesn't occur on my 2nd monitor and when I unplugged the DP cable from the GPU (while the issue was still occurring) it was still displaying the issue on the "No signal" screen.

 

Is it worth just replacing it or is there a fix?

 

Monitor: Acer Predator XB241H 24" (roughly 3 to 4 years old)

I had a similar issue on an older Nvidia, turned out to be a corrupted driver, download "ddu" to totally remove your current driver and download install a fresh one

Will do, hopefully that solves it. Thanks.

I've had half my screen go black, caused by turning on gsync on non-gsync certified monitor. But updating driver made it gsync compatible 🤔

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

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

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:

Spoiler

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

 

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

Spoiler

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:

Spoiler

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

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

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.
