    Screen sporadically becomes black on Intel NUC (NUC7i5BNH)


      Another problem I noticed and which is very annoying is the screen sporadically becomes black for a second on my Intel NUC. It does not seem the graphic driver crashes as there is no error message by Windows and the screen is only black for a second or two – after that all is as before.


      • This behaviour only appears when I use both monitors. When I only use Monitor 1 I don't have this problem.
      • When I put a YouTube video into fullscreen on Monitor 2 (Google Chrome) the behaviour appears. When I move a Window from Monitor 1 over this fullscreen on Monitor 2 (e. g. Windows Task Manager) the behaviour is no longer present. When I change to fullscreen again so the Windows is minimized the screen sporadically becomes black again. That is very mysterious.
