Bad monitor for gaming?


I recently bought a new pc containing a i5 6600 and gtx 1060 6gb (by gigabyte).
I have a phl 243v5 1920xq080 60hz monitor (philips). It starts blinking while playing games (only). All drivers are up to date and it didn't have any issues with my old pc with sapphire 7850 card.
I plugged another monitor with same resolution and 60hz by lg and it worked like a charm.

What could be the problem?

What i tried to do:
Reinstalling drivers
Reconnecting ram cards
Reconnecting cables
Playing with lower resolution (didnt help)
Turning off the power saver option

Thanks Happy

Thanks for the reply

Thanks for the reply.

Even though I already did what they are suggesting there in the manual and already have drivers installed (as driver booster is saying and in the monitor settings aswell).
I'll try out tomorrow to re-do the steps.

Mmm... returning it back... im not sure if I still have the warranty since I bought the monitor almost 2 years ago.

Thanks again

Never used Driver Booster.

But have had to undo damage from driver updaters. Be sure you can go back and recover if it wipes out.

I did what it was said in the manual and i installed the drivers (which are for win 8 whereas mine is 10).
Nothing seemed to help

Then the news is grim.

I looked at the W8 "driver" and it's just some monitor information that gets added via the 243V5.inf and 2 other files.

Given the failure you have to call it hardware now. I'm not there to check your settings so move this display to a machine it works on.
