External screen keeps going black for a few seconds - SCAR 17 2023

Level 7

Hi all,

I bought this laptop a few weeks back and installed a new screen.

I originally thought this only happened due to the cable and screen (Samsung OLED G8) but I've had the issue also pop up on another screen and I've already tried replacing the cable.

The issue is that the screen just blacks out for a few seconds before displaying the image again. When it happens in normal desktop mode it's back very fast (Less than a second), when I'm gaming in HDR it takes longer (3 seconds). I'm not hearing any disconnect happen and it's completely random.

The laptop is running in GPU mode mode, and all drivers are updated according to Armory crate.

Anyone else have this issue? Or is it just my model?
