Occasionally I am having an issue while playing Fortnite, (it tends to be when I am flying in the air). Both of my screens will turn off and they won't come back on. I have tried 4 total screens, dual and single yet this issue still occurs. I can still hear my game but after about 45 seconds I will crash and my friends will tell me that. The only solution to turn the screens back on is to restart the PC. Any advice?

windows version?
graphics card specs?

what have you tried;
  • removed, clean and reseat memory and graphics card?
  • remove the graphics card and run the game with just the onboard graphics?
  • only have one memory stick installed at a time?
  • does it only happen when playing games?
