Turning to your machine. I don't see malware as a cause. When I research reasons for those symptoms I find a range of possibilities including cables not connected, recent hardware changes, corrupt drivers, low power supply, bad video/graphics card or even corrupt bios.
These are issues that a technical person would be better placed to help you with. Go here and open a new topic. Explain your problem and hopefully someone there will have a solution.
I will keep this topic open for the mean time.
I am running windows 10, 32 bit on a desktop PC ... as it was upgraded by microsoft from my previous windows - basically I had no problems with it, got used to it by use.
Now, my screen frequently blanks, returns for a while, blanks again and returns for another few minutes,
Still playing up, though not so frequently, I re- downloaded windows 10, sadly lost a few things in the process, including all my paswords that were stored on
RoboForm - maybe it's a corrupted file? Driver? Bios?
Oh, my monitor sometimes just stops and re-starts with the following message:
"Display driver stopped working and has now recovered
Display driver AMD driver stopped and has successfully recovered"
and then ends up just streaming vertical multicoloured flickering lines - then that's how it remains until the PC is 'turned off' and restarted -
restarting alone only returns the streaming vertical multicoloured flickering lines - My up-to-date-Norton did not find a problem, nor yet did Housecall
or the Windows fixit thingy .... I am totally frustrated with this, as you can imagine, especially when I am on 'Facebook'
I would be so pleased if one of you guys could help solve this problem for me - or guide me to someone who could, it's so perplexing .... I barely can stay online for longer than 10 minutes or less.: without the action starting ....
Thank you so much for your time,
(P.S. I'm an old age pensioner (80yrs+) and use facebook and email to stay in contact with family and friends, most of them are overseas, so this is very important to me) Sadly I cannot afford a technical expert so am truly hoping you can help.
