Games goes to blackscreen

I have been playing some games like Dead space 2 and Dead island. But every once in a while the game goes black and then normal again. It all started when I got my GTX 550 ti. What is the problem? Is there something wrong with the video card drivers?

  1. what psu do you have?
  2. It's a corsair ultra x4 500W PSU.
  3. OK! Never mind. The problem was fixed by using an DVI-D cable instead of a VGA cable to a DVI-D to VGA adapter. (-_-)
  4. Never mind again. Still black on Dead Island. Anyone have an idea?
  5. force vsync on and see how that works for you; dead island had been known to overheat gpus. Is this the only game it does this on?

    Dead Rising 2, Dead Space 2, Fallout 3, and Deus Ex Human Revolution also has this problem but not as much as Dead Island. Also, how do you force vsync on?
  7. You can try forcing vsync in the nvidia control panel. If that doesn't work, you can donwload Rivatuner and use the D3DOverrider Tool to force vsync.
