eVGA gtx 1070 SC Gaming ACX 3.0 BE Black Screen/Lost Signal every few minutes then comes back , help please.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Guys i am having an issue that is bothering me a lot. I am having this problem and it is affecting everything i do on my PC. Every 5 or 10 minutes my screen goes completely black with a lost signal warning from my display and then the display signal comes back :/ . This is a brand new out of the box eVGA GTX 1070 SC Gaming Black Edition ACX 3.0 , since the first 1070 i bought was doa and i did rma that faulty video card , this is my second brand new out of the box eVGA GTX 1070 SC Gaming Black Edition ACX 3.0.

This happens anytime , it could take anywhere between 5 or 10 minutes but it will do it again and again while browsing the web , watching youtube or gaming. My screen will go black with a lost signal warning from my UHD 4K TV for around 3 seconds and then the signal comes back. The display it's connected via hdmi 2.0 with a Certified Premium High Speed HDMI Cable by monoprice ( 18Gps , certified by HDMI organization with the logo , 20 feet long ) this one = https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=15427 , is connected to my Vizio 50'' D50u-D1 UHD 4K 60HZ thru the hdmi #5 on the TV wish is the recommended hdmi 2.0 for gaming on this display. I use 3840/2160 60Hz resolution as recomended by nvidia control panel.

Things that i have done: Checked the hdmi connections and cable ( it's a brand new cable so it is not the cable ). Uninstall nvidia drivers and re-install the latest whql 378.49 drivers running DDU and CCleaner before re-installing. I only install the nvidia display driver , nvidia audio driver and Physx with a clean installation. In Nvidia control panel i have vsync as selected by application , perfomance mode mode enable everything else is left at stock and / or as per application controlled. I have reset the motherboard bios and also re-flash the mobo with the latest bios. The video card is running at stock settings , no oc and not touching anything.

Any idea why this is happening ? I am at lost right now because i cannot have such a bad luck and have 2 brand new video cards been faulty , it seems some kind of bandwidth related problem or a driver issue. The display is a 4K 60Hz certified and i never had this problem before with my last amd 290x video card and my eVGA gtx 750Ti. Any help , guidance and opinions are welcome. Please give me a hand i do not want to RMA this video card again. Thank you in advanced.

Had the same issue when I got my 4k tv, turns out if I wanted to run it at 4k 60hz I had to have a hdmi cable that was no longer than 1.5 to 2 metres mad.gif otherwise I got the exact same problem you're talking about, hope that helps.
