I just got my new gaming pc a week ago, i haven't got this issue yet until 2 days ago, while I'm watching videos or playing games (tomb raider, overwatch & fortnite) my screen goes black for i think 1 second then it goes back again, my pc didn't shut down and my games didn't crash, It's really just my monitor going black for 1 second, I tried reconnecting my dvi cable and my monitor power cable, and It's still happening. Yes. I have update my gpu driver.

 

Specs:

i3 8100

MSI B360M Bazooka

8gb ddr4 

Zotac GTX 1060 6gb Amp!

Corsair CX550M (i know, too much for a 1060)

Try using a different cable such as HDMI or Display Port and see if it happens.
