Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Unreal Engine causes 4k monitor to go black for a few seconds while moving mouse.

Unreal Engine loads up fine. The problem is moving my cursor anywhere within the application windows causes the monitor to go black for a few seconds. it comes back...then when I move it again...same thing. Moving my cursor anywhere outside the window doesn't cause the problem.

I have: Windows 10 (64-bit) Geforce 1070 GTX (newest drivers)

Product Version: UE 4.20

I started having this exact issue yesterday! No idea what changed? Latest drivers with GeForce 1080Ti

avatar image LeonBrazil Sep 25 '18 at 07:28 PM

The latest Nvidia drivers are the culprit. I rolled back to 399.24-desktop-win10-64bit-international-whql.exe No more black screen of annoyance!

the new update nvidia still got this problem.any other solution than downgrade the driver?

avatar image taisuken Oct 01 '18 at 03:31 PM

guys I really need help this problem ...please someone!

avatar image matrixcn Oct 02 '18 at 01:19 AM

I haven't tried rolling back the driver as I need the updated ones for compatibility on other things...so that wouldn't be a solution for me in my situation. I will say...Thanks for finding that out though LeonBrazil.

It does seem to be exclusively 4k TV related as I have 2 monitors (TV's). 1x 1080p and 1x 4k Samsung smart. When I drag the Unreal Editor within my 1080p TV...there's no issues present. It's only when I drag the window onto my 4K TV that the issue presents itself. Very Weird!!!

avatar image Hattackk Oct 19 '18 at 09:27 PM

Still an issue with 4.20.3. This only causes my main display to black out.

I have started to experience the same issue a couple of days ago. I was hoping to find the solution to this problem, however, I wasn't able to find it. Asked my friend who is working for EduBirdie (link text) and has experience in UE, but he replied, that he hasn't seen such problems previously. Does anybody have the answer? Because it's crucial for my project I'm currently working on.

Yep I had to roll back another driver version, I was finding hitches with the one I posted above. This one is the most stable for me: 399.07-desktop-win10-64bit-international-whql-rp.exe

I tried the latest 411.70, that still causes the 4K black screen of annoyance.

Sticking with 399.07 for the time being.
