Ok. Everything on my PC works fine, but the monitor keeps going black then back to the destop. The say if you are scolling a webpage it will keep flashing between the two. I thought it was the monitor that was going, so i went to bought a new one. Its STILL doing it. What can it be?

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Princess Frost :tazz:

Oh! Also, when you play games, like Day of Defeat.

Isn't that strange?!?

And its gone right black now and won't come back on. :tazz:

It sounds like driver problem did you download the latest drivers for you video card .Have you bought the right videocard for your PC.
Can you give more details exactly how it happens and What videocard you using and OS.
Did you install Videocard your self ?
Thanks.

Yes, I installed it myself. All I did was put it in a PCI slot, inserted the cd and let it install. It seems to be fine. Computer, picture, is great. For some reason whenever you go to do something, like scroll a webpage, scan with norton or ad-ware. Anything like that it always goes flashes black then back to the destop, then goes black again, then back to the desktop and it continues to do this until you stop what your doing and just leave the whole thing alone.
The only thing it doesn't do is when you play day of defeat or CS it doesn't do it at all. NOT ONCE. So if it were the videocard installed inproperly you would think that it would do it ALL the time. Not just when your working on the desktop and not when you're playing a game.

I have completely ran out of ideas.

Also, If you go into system properties, and click on my graphics card.
It says it is a GForce FX 5500 and that the driver is installed properly.

Did you download the latest drivers for Videocard from www.nvidia.com and did you download DirectX from www.microsoft.com the latest version is 9.0c.
Also try out this link it might help.
