GTX 980 XB270HU Acer issue; Monitor losing signal after period of time.

Hi there,

I have a xb270hu Acer monitor and a 980 GTX graphics card, I have not been having this issue in the past and it is very recent.

I will be playing overwatch, (already played many many hours without this issue) and all of the sudden my screen will go dark and say "No signal. I also get a notification noise from windows 10, when my monitor will lose signal. I will stay connected to the game, and I will be able even to talk to my friends. But the only fix is restarting my computer, which the monitor then instantly works.

The drivers I have install have all been working since the 23rd of May.

Anyone familiar with this sort of issue?

Thanks in advance

  1. It is quite possible that you are having gpu driver crashes. Try rolling back to a previous version or updating to a newer version and see if it fixes the problem.
    Use DDU to uninstall you drivers for your gpu completely (in safe mode).

    I didn't quite find an exact solution, but the problem seems to have stopped happening after swapping my DisplayPort connection. By swapping I mean, I took the end plugged into the monitor, and plugged it into the computer vice versa. This seems to have solved it as well as restoring my Nvidia settings to default.
