SOLVED: Plugged in wrong HDMI cable that was not able to handle the bandwidth required from GPU intensive games. To future readers make sure to check to make sure your HDMI cable display port requirements and ensure your HDMI cables match!
Shoutout to @RJohnson11 for his input and special thanks to all those who aided me in my plight.
Greetings EVGA Community,
I have been plagued for the last 6 days with a black screen issue when playing games through steam (Specifically Hunt: Showdown and Risk of Rain 2). For some context, I can play from anywhere to 5 to 30 minutes without issue and then suddenly I lose complete control of my monitors. My primary monitor black screens and then my two tertiary monitors go black. After 15-30s they all come back on and whatever game I am playing moves to a different monitor. After another 5-30s all monitors will black screen again and the game attempts to move back to my primary monitor. This usually results in a crash or needing to ALT + F4 out of the game in order to regain control of my screens.
The odd thing about this is it seems to only be more graphic intensive games. I can play games like League of Legends, Team Fight Tactics and Minecraft for hours without any issues.
Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming WiFi II
Memory: Cosair Vengeance LPX - 2 x 16GB
GPU: EVGA FTW3 Ultra Gaming LE iCX3 GeForce RTX 3080 TI 12GB
CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5900x 3.7GHz 12-Core Processor
PSU: Corsair HX1000 Platinum || 1000 Watts
Things I have tried to resolve this issue:
1.) Updating my GPU drivers
2.) Clean uninstall of my GPU drivers using DDU/SafeMode
3.) Rolling back GPU drivers to a safe/previously working version
4.) Switching HDMI Cables and ports
5.) Uninstalling Hunt and Reinstalling Hunt
6.) Disabling DirectX 12 and Using DirectX 11
7.) Running the game as Admin
8.) Allowing Hunt and EasyAntiCheat through my firewall
9.) Changing my 3d settings in my Nvidia Control Panel
10.) Disabling FullScreen Optimizations
11.) Reset my bios to default - so no overclocking
12.) Updated AM4 Socket Chipset Drivers
13.) Disable Link State Power Management
14.) Updating Windows
15.) Checking for Overheating - cleaned CPU and reapplied thermal paste
16.) SFC/ Scan Now and DISM Related Commands
17.) Disassemble my entire PC and reseated everything
18.) Disabled Fast Boot/Startup
Note: I unfortunately do not have any spare parts to test anything.
