So let me explain whats happening ...
A friend recently purchased a secondhand Biostar EDEQ 4000 ... an all in one machine. It was fine other than some problems with the harddrive and Windows XP was messed up. Easy enough to sort out. Fitted a new a harddrive and did a fresh install of Windows XP. Everything was fine and it working perfectly, like a new machine. Sound wasnt working, so we opened the computer up, to have a look at the soundcard. Installed the correct audio drivers. Sound now worked and the pc was working great! Until after an hour or so when the screen started cutting out
The screen briefly comes back on every now and again, and it can be seen that everything the computer was doing when the screen went off it still open. It's just the screen that wasn't working. So to check if it was just the screen I plugged in an external monitor. So now the PC was running with two monitors attached. And to my surprise, they both cut out.
I just don't have a clue what has happened or why its doing what its started doing. It was working perfectly fine until I updated the audio drivers ... but I dont see what the link is
So please! Can someone help me out here? Give me some advice! I'm tearing my hair out over this! I'm not going to be able to get it out of my mind until the problem is sorted out!
Thanks in advance!
