I have something I have never had before. I am using Windows XP Professional with SP2.
Abit KR7A-Raid motherboard
512 MB DDR 266 memory (one chip, Micron)
Western Digital 160 JB hard drive
Asus 16x DVD-/+RW
500 watt generic power supply
Leadtek GeForce 4200 128 MB AGP Video
My problem is that my screen blanks randomly for just a second or two. It is like when Windows is installing new hardware and the screen goes black. It does this in everything I do from just browsing My Computer to Internet.
I have a legal copy of XP with all the latest patches. I also have anti-spyware and anti-virus (Norton) that are up to date.
I have tried changing power supplies, memory, video card and reseating my CPU and Video card and Memory. The system worked fine until I put it in storage for a while (6 months) and then when I got it out all I changed was the hard drive and did a fresh install of Windows.
I have attached the monitor (NEC 991SB 19") to another computer and it does not have the same problem, it works fine. I took the motherboard out and cleaned it with compressed air, and made sure that all my fans were working.
It has me at the end of my rope so to speak, HELP!
Thanks in advance,
