Whenever I perform an action within photoshop (scrolling, clicking etc.) it is causing my monitor to quickly turn off and on (as if the display is switching when you apply physical settings).
It has never done this before.
Has anyone encountered this before?
What exact version of Photoshop and operating system are you using, sounds like it could be an issue with your GPU driver.
I also thought this, but all my drivers are up to date - this is not occuring with any other Adobe product.
Graphics card: nVidia 3080
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5900x
Ram: 32GB 3600mhz
Monitor: Dell S2721DGF
I will also add this seem to only occur on my Main Monitor (listed in my other reply).
If I move the program to my second monitor this doesn't occur (however it is older, hence why it is not the main monitor)
I have dual monitors connected to a RTX2060 super and I'm not experiencing issues with Photoshop on either monitor, are both you monitors connected to the RTX3080 GPU, do you have an onboard Intel GPU as well.
Do you use the Game Ready or Studio driver from Nvidia, Adobe recommend the Studio.

See step 7 in the link above for "Configuring computers with multiple graphics cards."
I am having the exact same problem. Is your main monitor a g-sync monitor? I have heard Adobe software doesn't behave well with g-sync. I tried disabling it in the nvidia control panel but now my monitor screen turns off everytime I click or use the brush tool like you described.
