Monitor Issue; Having a problem with my monitor and need help.

I ain't even mad...Bro.

When gaming my monitor loses signal and it black screens yet I can still hear audio and even continue playing, if I alt tab out of the game then the screen comes back on.
It never black screens when doing anything else, I can use recording software and record guitar, browse facebook, watch videos and all sorts without it black screening.

I've got a GTX 1050ti, Athlon x4 860k. The GPU has HDMI and DVI however my monitor has just a VGA connection to which I have to have an adaptor for the DVI connection on the GPU.

I've tried connecting it via HDMI to another monitor and it works perfectly, not got another adaptor to try with my monitor or another VGA cable to swap out.

I'm at a total loss as to what might cause this because if it was a dodgy cable or anything it would do it constantly instead of just when games are on the screen?

Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what was the cause? How did you fix it?

What operating system are you using? Does it only occur with a specific game?
