This is unusual. For the second time while doing a video call on Yahoo instant messenger, my 25" asus lcd screen goes black and I loose communication with the other party sound and all. Here is the funny part, the monitor still has a working blue light and the pc is running , I can't do anything because I can't see. I have to reset the pc and boot back up. The question is , Can this be the video card causing this. I was running the camera off a hub and maybe it needs to run right off the PC. What do you guys think. Thanks
