Screen flickering to black for a second

Technical Support
Hey I was just wondering if anyone else is having this problem and if so is there something to resolve it. Every once in a while when I am playing the screen will go black for a second then go back to the game, there is no rhyme or reason to when it happens.

Assuming you use Windows, check the System Log located in the Event Viewer under Administrative Tools and see if there are any events being recorded when this happens. You might be getting TDR errors but usually they last much longer than a second or two and are accompanied by a warning message.

If no events are listed, I'd suspect a possible bad connection between your video card and monitor or a refresh rate being used your monitor is right on the verge of not being able to support properly.
