Black scfeen of death

  Barista 23:14 04 May 2008

Twice in the last month, while surfing the net, I have encountered a black screen of death showing 'no signal'. The only way I can return to my desktop is to switch off and restart the computer. Is my graphics card failing?

Hi Rossgolf

No, the computer was still running when the monitor desktop died after clicking on a link in a website. There were just two words on a black screen saying
'No Signal'. So I shut down the computer and re-started normally.

check your connections going in to the monitor and in to the PC. They work loose sometimes.
