The Problem isn't perse' with the PC, but with either the Video Card, OR the Monitor. (I think)
Every once in awhile, my monitor just goes black. Then a few moments later, comes right back as if nothing at all happened to it, or it might continue to do this to me for a few minutes, almost flickering. (Im not sure how to explain it.)
Anyhow, SOMETIMES (yes only sometimes) I will get a message on the all black screen telling me that there is no signal for it to display, even tho the PC is ON.
Other times, I will not even get this message, just a black screen.
I've also noticed, that when this happens, I get a sort of screeching, squealing sound out of the speakers of my Monitor, that will STOP, when the Screen decides to work again.
I have checked all the connections, and I would try another monitor to see if the problem was the video card, however, I just dont have another monitor.
It seems that the monitor will sometimes want a kind of warmup time before it will decide to work. I have left the PC off and came back and started everything after a few hours, and sometimes it does not do this to me, and sometimes it does.
I know the video card isnt anything great, and replacing it would be difficulat because of the size of the space it has to work in. Any video card suggestions for this PC would be appreciated, as long as you know it will work, that is.
I have checked the health of the Video Card, and have not yet found it to be in error, but then again, it was working when i was looking for a fault.
Is there some program I can use to be able to tell me what the problem is? I can handle it either being the Video Card or the Monitor, I just dont want to do the Wrong this 1st.
Thanks so much in advance!!
