Black screen in the middle of gaming. No output from GPU.

Hi guys, I will skip the formalities and go right into the problem to be brief.

I am playing League of Legends and suddenly my display goes black. My monitor says no input detected. All the fans in my pc are running at max, as seen (or rather heard) in the bottom video. My gpu is connected to my primary display via DP and secondary display via HDMI. There is no input into both of these displays. Swapping the hdmi cable from my GPU to my MOBO also does not give a display. (But even in the usual course of events, as I am writing this now, my MOBO doesn't give and output to my monitor.

 

I have to press the restart button on my case to restart my pc and solve this issue.

 

This issue has occurred 2 times today, within a span of 3 hours. It has occurred one time in the past but I forgot if I was playing LoL. (I'm not a avid LoL player, as I only play it whenever theres urf, so I'm not too certain whether I was playing LoL when it happened).

Does the black screen force a restart of the computer automatically by itself??? Typically, when the fans go to 100% max speed, this is a hardware problem. 

 

What are your temperatures of your Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti like??? Can you view in Event Viewer under Windows logs to see if there is an event recorded at the time of the black screening??

Heh, the worst possible combination...

 

Try updating the BIOS and chipset drivers, if that doesn't fix it i would say its time to replace the motherboard (yes, i had this motherboard,  shortly, i dont care how "good" its supposed to be, its garbage,  so many  BSODs...  the problem isn't hardware,  the problem is MSI bios are trash,  but if you're lucky they have a working bios available by now)

1. The black screen doesn't force a restart. I have to restart my pc via the case button to solve it. While the black screen is ongoing, I could hear the game audio for the first few seconds before being unable to hear it.

2. My GPU idles at around 54 degrees celsius

3. I'm not sure if I'm viewing the correct section at event viewer, but when I navigate to Windows Logs > Application at the time of the blackout there is an error entry. Its details are as follows:

Oh, whats bad about MSI's MOBO? I used B150 gaming M3 along with my intel I5 6400 in the past and had no problems. So thats why i upgraded to my current MOBO with my processor. I don't play around with the BIOS much other than turning on XMP, so maybe I'm unaware of issues related to more advanced use cases (?)

Hmm, after looking around online, someone had this issue and apparently, the graphics card needed to be reseated as it was not making a good connection with the PCIe slot. Try reseating the graphics card and see if that resolves your issue.

Its for example RAM compatibility,  reliability,  etc, msi bios is just poor on average... i had to wait ~2 years for a stable bios that supports my cpu properly for example- and its still not great  - but at least they fixed it i guess.  After 2 years. 

 

Basically as I said update your bios and hope that fixes it.

 

Also chipset driver from AMD, *not* msi...

Exactly the same issues I had.  With that same board. (different case from the one above, I returned the b450 as it was non functional)

Thank you for your reply. I will update my bios and chipset. Hopefully that solves the problem.

Okay I'll do so. Since the problem is triggered by unknown causes, I won't be able to say if that works anytime soon. But hopefully this coupled with the the bios and chipset update, solves the problem.
