    Black Screens While Gaming


    I’ve been noticing whenever I game on pc both of my monitors will go black for about 2 seconds, it brings me to the desktop and my discord will turn completely black. I can still hear friends talking in discord app but I just can’t see anything. This has been happening more and more now. Any ideas why this may be happening?Note: I started noticing this issue after updating Windows 10 a couple months back.Specs:Ryzen 9 3900xrtx 2080 supermsi x470 gaming plus32gb ram 1-1080p 144hz monitormain monitor1-4k 60hz monitorvertical monitorOS: Just put in a windows 10 pro key a couple months ag
