I've got a new NUC8i7HVK, and seem to be encountering a small problem. not often, but from time to time, the screen goes black, meaning it's stops showing for a few seconds, and returns to normal. I am not using a 4K monitor. and the resolution is the standard 1920X1080.
Is there any fix for this issue?
1. In order to get better information about your system, please download the Intel System Support Utility (SSU). Run the SSU scan and save the results. The .txt file with the results please attach to your post.
2. Are you using DP or HDMI output?
3. Are you using direct video cable connection or, are you using some conversion adapter?
4. What is the model of your monitor?
Thanks for the quick reply. I've attached the SSU txt file to this reply.
As for the other question...
2. Are you using DP or HDMI output? HDMI
3. Are you using direct video cable connection or, are you using some conversion adapter? Direct Video Cabel
4. What is the model of your monitor? Philips 223V
1. You wrote that you are using direct HDMI to HDMI connection. However I can see that Philips 223V monitor is an old model without HDMI or DP input. It has only VGA and DVI_D inputs. So, in order to connect your NUC to this monitor you must use some HDMI to VGA or HDMI to DVI adapter. Therefore this is not a direct connection. I'm almost certain that this type of connection and this old monitor is causing your problem. Just for a test, connect your NUC to HDMI input in your TV set. You have high class modern computer, use high class monitor (:
2. After reading the SSU report, I can see that the AMD Graphics Driver is outdated. Please download and install the version 19.12.1 of the AMD Graphics Driver This is not the last released version, but is the best functioning version for NUC8i7HVK. I doubt that it will fix your problem (since I believe that the monitor is causing this problem), but this driver should be updated.
Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.
We are checking this thread and we would like to know if you were able to install the driver recommended by LeonWaksman.
If you need further assistance, please provide the exact and full part number of your display since there are some variants of this display matching "223V". Also, please provide a new Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU) report once you have installed the recommended driver:

I was able to install the driver the Leon said. but like he said it's an older driver.
Anyway, i also changed the HDMI cable, and it seems to have worked.
You have blinking screen too, however may be you have other problem/solution. So, instead to write post in this thread, open a new thread with problem description. In order to get better information about your system, please download the Intel System Support Utility (SSU). Run the SSU scan and save the results. The .txt file with the results please attach to your post.
It sure as buck wheat on a bonfire did not help that both AMD and Intel dropped support for the GPU in this NUC.
I kind of feel robed and assaulted all at once and it was a Very expensive Fix to get games to run.
