I am trying to help one friend of mine...We are getting desperate.
He has I7-7700k, MSI Z270 Gaming M6 (previous motherboard was ASUS Z270 MAXIMUS FORMULA with a few bent pins and not working two ram slots), Kraken X42, 2x8gb ddr4 3000MHz G. Skill RGB ram Supernova G2 850w power supply, SSD 128gb, 1TB HDD, massive ATX case GTX 1080 inno3D triple fan +1080p 60hz monitor with HDMI.
We tried switching motherboards, removing video card and using integrated intel hd graphics, reinstalling Nvidia drivers, changing motherboard, reinstalling windows, using computer without installing geforce experience. NOTHING OF THIS HELPED.
What happens: short blackscreen with no audio, after that everything goes back to normal. Does not matter if you're playing video games or not. Happens sometimes even while watching a movie. They happen once a day in a very inconsistent manner.
The only possible causes in my opinion are - RAM, CPU or power supply? I don't think it can be monitor just because audio disappears as well.
If you know ANYTHING about possible issue, please let us now.
