I'm been having some trouble with my computer lately. Every few days I I get this https://imgur.com/MH6E3m6
on my monitor. Goes away for 15 seconds or so if I re-seat my DVI connection, then returns. The screen goes back to normal immediately if I don't unplug anything and start the shutdown process. I can watch my computer close down the programs and reboot normally. It won't happen again for a day or two after that. So far it has only happened when I'm browsing Amazon, Gmail, Twitch, and Techreport (so far).
Anyone run into something similar? It is slow to troubleshoot because I can't seem to find a way to force it to happen, it just rears its head every few days. It has never occurred when I'm stressing the GPU.
Two days ago I installed the latest Nvidia drivers for my 970 and thought that had fixed it, but it just happened again. I swapped the DVI cable just now, but I don't think that is the cause since the problem will go away when I start to reboot. It's a single link DVI cable so I have to wave goodbye to 144hz till I grab a DP cable from work tomorrow. I'm running a Ryzen 1600x rig with a GTX 970 from 2015, paired with a Asus VG248QE monitor.
Curious to see if anyone has any ideas.
