GTX 1060 black screen during 2-3 seconds or more


I have a GTX1060 on archlinux. It’s pretty similar to another issue on windows :

I notice, with the latest proprietary drivers, blacks screen during 2-3 seconds especially in games but also on desktop or when applications are in fullscreen.

Sometimes the screen stay completely black. No error are reported in the logs.

This happens on version 418.43.

The issue is not present if I use 390.116 with the same parameter.

Copied from

Note: nvidia-bug-report.log.gz genereted with 390.116
nvidia-bug-report.log.gz (579 KB)
nvidia-bug-report418.log.gz (1.04 MB)

Please create a new nvidia-bug-report.log with the 418.43 driver after the issue has happened and attach it.

I add the nvidia-bug-report.log with the 418.43 driver to the first post just after the problem occurs.

Edit : I also notices a lot of corrupted texture in games with 418.43

Nevermind the issue seems to be related to the HDMI-VGA adapter.

I don’t know why but this happen with 418.43.
