Well this one was really frustrating me for about a week. I even installed KDE NEON to narrow down what it could be. When I installed NEON it suggests using the 470 drivers and it seems to work till I started adjusting nvidia-settings and such.
I would be using the system and randomly the screen would go completely black dead for about 4 or 5 seconds no audio, no picture, nothing. Then the screen would come back on and everything was fine till it happened again. Really frustrating when I’m trying to watch YouTube and such. This would happen no matter what I was doing on the system in 5 to 10 minute intervals. It first started happeing on the new EOS KDE install then after pulling my hair out while reading all the EOS Wiki and Arch Wiki concerning NVIDIA issues I could not fix the problem. So I tried KDE NEON and it did the same thing But I found the culprit… and you won’t believe it…
AsusTek TUF B450M-Pro Gaming - AMD Ryzen 5 3600 - NVIDIA TUF GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER
EOS-KDE 5.23.3 Plasma
Hook up to a VIZIO TV P55-F1 (Resolution 3840x2160 60Hz 16:9)
And yes I have new 4K 2.0 HDMI Cables from amazon that work on another EOS Nvidia system hooked up to the same TV. Works great.
But this new PC was a WIN11 PC that I ditched cause I have had enough of Windows.
So for what ever reason I went into TV settings and Input settings and you can turn on/off
(FULL UHD COLOR) per each HDMI input.
IT WAS ON and I TURNED IT OFF and BANG I’M BACK BABY…
No more issue… Finally
Just hope this helps someone. Gobble Gobble!!!
Happy Thanks Giving.
