Hello,

 

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.

 

Thanks again!

Could it be the monitor? What happens if you keep the PC on throughout the night (disable sleep) and just put the monitor in standby mode (as happens when your PC is idle), then move the mouse in the morning?
