    Black Screen Issues

    Since I updated my computer to Windows 10 I have been suffering from a mayor issue, that is every certain amount of time my computer screen will go totally black (like if it went to sleep mode) and computer will be completely unresponsive. I tried everything: formatted, updated drivers, tested every component, uninstalled all the software...I was still having the issue.

    After a while being desparate I found this thread where it says that x79 platform with windows ten suffer from this, and that the solution is to turn off virtualization in BIOS (VTd) and not to use Corsair Link. After doing so, I thought I had found the solution, but sadly, is still happens sometimes. After changing my motherboards battery, and making really sure that the BIOS settings where the same, the problem is still hapenning every now and then, and I don't know what else to do...

    Has anyone encountered this situation or know what else I could try?
    The computer is a Asus Rampage IV Black edition (X79), Intel 4930k, 32 gb Corsair dominator Platinum 2133, Corsair AXi 1200, 2x Asus GTX980, Samsung 840 Pro.
