I've been having a problem that is driving me crazy. Sometimes my computer screen goes blank (actually, a nice shade of lavender)...when it does, I have to turn my computer off manually (not good) scandisk, reactivate my desktop screen, restart, and log back on to the internet. It happens when I click my mouse to send email, or click to reply to a message in a yahoo group, or sometimes logging off a website....things of that nature. Sometimes, I can go all evening without a problem...other times it happens. I think it even happened once when I wasn't on the internet. Can you help me?! Thanks...
This question was answered on April 10, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.Heres what I would, open the tower and remove the video card.
Blow out the slot with compress air to clean it.
Than insert the card again.
Dirt can be a possibility of corruption.
Also, it can be simple case of wear and tear.
You may need a new one.
Check all all connections, mix signols is another possibility.
