Monitor goes black for a second and then comes back on...

Hello guys, since I installed windows 7 64x back in August 2017, my monitor OFTEN goes black for a second ONLY and then comes back on while Gaming or Surfing the Internet, I tried everything (Underclocking,Clean install GPU Drivers using Display Driver Uninstaller,running a computer virus scan and even updating all The Drivers using Driver Booster...)

Note:THIS IS THE FIRST TIME EVER I'VE GOT A PROBLEM LIKE THIS...

If Somoene could help me please :)..

Check the lead from the computer to the monitor. Remove the connections at each end & refit making sure it has lined up properly.

It's possible the monitor may be failing. During use such as gaming the monitor has to refresh frequently to keep up with the changing image, so if it's refresh rate is slow you could check to see if you can change that at the monitor itself. This might help, but you may have to consider a new monitor.

If you follow the suggestion below, make sure the computer has been shut down & the power cord has been unplugged from the computer.

If you feel competent enough, remove the computer cover & remove the graphics card, being sure to unclip the plastic lock at the end & remove the securing screw that holds it in place. Carefully ease it out & remove any dust etc. & make sure the fan, if it has one is free to run. Wipe the contact surfaces with a clean dry cloth & reinstall the card being sure it is properly seated & the locking clip & screw are properly seated. Before replacing the computer cover, start it up & see the graphics card fan is running, if it has one. If the fan is not running properly the card can overheat & this can cause problems like you are having.

If this fails to fix the problem your graphics card may need to be replaced.

What were you doing with the CPU. There was no need to remove it. You should only have removed the Graphics card as instructed, which has nothing to do with the CPU.

Broken pins on the CPU usually mean it's no longer usable, so you will probably have to replace it. Depending on how old your computer is will depend on whether a new CPU is still available, if not you may have to replace the motherboard as well.
