Blank screen and 'Beeps'

Periodically my monitor screen goes Blank and is accompanied by Beeping continuously at about 3 second intervals. Is this a graphics problem. I am using Win XP and the latest drivers.

It can happen with any programme but is most likely with Microsoft money 2000, Internet explorer or Media player.

The only solution is to switch off mains power and reboot.

Thanks Grev.

Yes Graphics Card. Remove the card and Refit it should clean the terminals a bit, if not got to a Electronics shop and get some Sevisol Switch cleaner and spray in slot put the card in and out a couple of times. All this with the plug out of the wall socket, touch the bare metal case before you play
