Thank you for taking the time to read this.
As a note, whenever I have problems I've always been able to resolve them by heavily researching and finding other individual's posts regarding similar issues. But aside from describing the issues, I can't pinpoint what the problem is -- if it's the hardware or monitor or whatever.
Preface: I've built my own PC about 1.5 months ago and solely use it for gaming. Literally have only downloaded the games I play, Google Chrome, and a media player.
So the problem is that whenever I wake my computer from Sleep or turn it on, I'll be met with a frozen screen with vertical stripes and a slight dimming (pictures included; I apologize for my lewd background). This will occur approximately 4-5 times in succession for a duration of ~4 seconds and then stop completely. Stop as in I'll never have any issues afterwards including while gaming. Furthermore, this only occurs whenever I wake or turn on my computer after a long time has passed. I haven't tested the required amount of time that's needed for it to occur again but it occurs when I turn it on first thing in the morning. If I put the computer on Sleep then wake it immediately afterwards, the issue does not occur.
I thought it would be an issue with the GPU and did a clean install of it but to no avail.
If anybody has any thoughts or inputs I'd gladly appreciate it.
