    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64 bit
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8600K CPU @ 3.60GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 158 Stepping 10
    Processor Count: 6
    RAM: 8102 Mb

    Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd., Z370 AORUS Ultra Gaming-CF
    Antivirus: Avast Antivirus, Enabled and Updated
    Monitor 1 S24F350, Monitor 2 SMB2430L.

    Monitor 1 is connected via HDMI direct to graphics card and Monitor is connected via DVI also direct to graphics card. No 1 is set as primary.

    The pc set up was recently disconnected and moved to another room and re-setup.

    Since then, with the pc and both monitors on, everything is fine. Turn off monitor 2 at the monitor and no 1 monitor goes blank for 2-3 secs, then comes back on. And the same when I turn no 2 back on.

    What causes no 1 to go blank? Should I be concerned about it? Does it need rectifying?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.
