Hey guys, just wondering if anyone can help me out with an issue that has been bothering me for a little while now.

Every now and then, sometimes multiple times fairly quickly, I'll be messing around on my computer (watching Amazon, YouTube, Netflix, playing games, etc.) and the screen will just go black for 2-4 seconds(and just recently started doing this multicolored static thing), then come back on and be normal. I've updated my drivers and ran my scans, but it is a persistent problem. It doesn't really bother me when it happens while watching something (audio still plays just fine) but when I'm playing a game I'm virtually guaranteed a death, and that gets pretty frustrating.

any and all help is much appreciated.

and thank you in advance.

This is what it keeps doing, if it helps at all

Try to open up your computer, if it's out of warranty, and clean it up, especially the video card socket. Also, make sure all monitor cables are plugged in correctly. :)

Make and  model of the computer and monitor ?

 

It certainly does look like you are getting a disconnect at times. apart from the cables check, if you are using a seperate video card, that it is properly plugged into the mobo and that any connections such as power to it are good.

 

If you have access to a different moitor a swap would tell you whether it is the ccomputer or the monitor that is at fault.
