AMD athlon 2400+

512 mb RAM

Nvida geForce 4 Ti 4200 8x 128mb

windows XP SP2

asus A7V8X motherboard

my screen keeps randomly blacking out for 1-3 seconds.

everything on the screen freezes for 1-2 secs followed by blackness for -2-3 secs

it seems to be software related because after a blackout there are sometimes icons that dont look right or parts of a box that hasnt been refreshed.

i have flashed my Bios and reinstalled video driver and neither of these have worked.

1. Does the problem occur when you are booted into Safe Mode?

2. Have you looked through your system logs yet for any pertinent error messages? If not, open the Event Viewer program in your Administrative Tools folder to do so.

3. Give us some history of the problem: when did it start happening, had you changed/added/removed any software/hardware at about that point, etc.?

i havent changed any hardware

and im not entirely sure when it started.

it was only a minor thing at the start but then it became more frequent.

im not sure how to turn on event logging...

Look through the Application and System logs for events that are tagged with a red "exclamation point" or indicate "Warning" and see if the date/time stamp on those coincide with the time that the freezes occur. I f so, tell us what they are.

OK then, let's go for this question I asked previously:

Does the problem occur when you are booted into Safe Mode?


If it doesn't occur in Safe Mode, that would be more indicative of a software problem.

IceSt0rm,

First of all- welcome to TechTalk!

We ask that members not tag their questions on to a thread previously started by another member (regardless of how similar your problem might seem). Not only does it divert the focus of the thread away from the original poster's problem, but it also makes it less likely that you yourself will get the individual attention that you need.

Given the above, I've split your posts into their own new thread, which you can find here:

http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums/showthread.php?p=86544#post86544


Please continue with the troubleshooting of your problem in that thread. Also- for a full description of our posting guidelines and general rules of conduct, please see this page:
