Hello

last month i upgraded to a GTX 1070, last week i started getting problems, as my screens would flicker a few times then go black, sometimes i would keep seeing my mouse cursor(and move it). this happen at random time while using the pc, not at boot up.

it started the same day i installed some old legacy software, so i uninstalled that and did a system restore to a few days before, it seemed to have fixed it, but it started back up last night

the problem seem to mostly happen when i am on youtube or twitch for some reason... when gaming it doesn't happen.

anyone got any ideas ?

windows 10 pro 64bit.

Even with a system restore this could be a lingering driver issue. I've had this exact issue but under Win7

Try a clean nV install. If that doesn't work I can only tell you that I had to reformat to fix it. I hope it doesn't come to that for you.

Could it be an issue with monitor settings? I seem to recall GTX 970/980s had a similar issue, when hooked up via the (mini-) display port.

Have you tried just one monitor, and then the other monitor to see if it might be monitor dependent?
