This is an issue ive had of late its fairly common now but sometimes it doesn't happen but when undocking or jumping through stargates the screen will go black and say signal lost from pc, this as you may know causes issues when travelling with expensive cargo as you are technically blind for 5 to 10 seconds. Any help in resolving this issue will be greatly appreciated.

It sounds like you're having some hardware issues...overheating or otherwise. The black screen would be your graphics adapter resetting itself which is alarming. Try turning down your client's graphics settings and turning off the heavier things like shadows and anti-aliasing.

What graphics card do you have? MSI Afterburner is a great piece of software for monitoring Nvidia adapters ...not sure about AMD.
