    Hello Tech Support Guys, I have this problem for a while now and I need your assistance.

    I have a GTX1060 6gb and anything I try to plug in my 3 displayports flickers, 'goes blackscreen' and shows a lot of tearing. It happens in and out of games. It doesn't happen on the DVI or the HDMI ports.

    I do have a monitor that supports both HDMI and displayport, but since I use a VR headset, having to plug and unplug the HDMI cable to use VR is annoying (Oculus CV1 uses HDMI). Also, freesync would be great.

    My progress so far:
    **I have noticed that, the lower the resolution on the monitor (and the refresh rate), the better the displayport performs. "Great" at 1024 x 768 resolution. It's a usefull trick to use while playing in VR.
    **already tried two displayport cables and two displayport to hdmi adapters.
    **already tried using DDU to reinstall my nvidia drivers​

    Anyone have any idea of what is happening?
    Are my 3 displayports damaged?
    Should I keep using the displayport or is it a risk for my monitor?

    My current monitor: ( lg.com/us/monitors/lg-29WK600-W-ultrawide-monitor )
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8400 CPU @ 2.80GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 158 Stepping 10
    Processor Count: 6
    RAM: 16320 Mb
    Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, -1 Mb
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd., B360M AORUS Gaming 3-CF

    Output should be the same over all three of those outputs. The only thing specific to DP which comes to mind is if you have G-Sync enabled in the nVidia drivers.
