    HD4600 - Random Cut to Black

    xPETEZx

      I am having a problem using the onboard intel HD4600 of my Gigabyte Z87-HD3.

       

      Randomly during use the screen will cut to black the AV amp shows no audio in and then everything returns a second later.

      This is very annoying.

       

      My system is as follows:

      Gigabyte Z87-HD3

      i5-4430

      Windows 8.1 Pro x64

       

      Connected to:

      Onkyo TX-NR515 via HDMI. (Which is connected to a Sharp LED TV)

       

      Originally my problem was the well documented issue whereby on turning the Amp / TV off but leaving the PC on I would not get sound back unless I rebooted the PC when turning the AMP / TV back on.

       

      I updated the drivers to the latest version and the BIOS to the latest version. This solved the above.

       

      I am not sure if my random cut to black problem is since this update or not. I never really got to use the PC much for video before the fix.

       

      Would appreciate any pointers.

       

      I have tested the TV/Amp with another PC and a Blu-Ray player, it never does this then.
