Medion PC screen blanking out

  User-34C3DFE4-1DCA-4A09-AC338B3A18AD766A 21:28 25 Apr 2003

I recently purchased a Medion P4 2.8 from PC world, everything is fine but occasionally the screen blanks out. I was unsure if it was the Proview TFT monitor or the PC until I noticed the screen is stable when the screensaver is active. Can anybody shed some light on this matter?

right click the desktop and stop the screen saver running

PS also go to Control Panel\Power Management choose not to shut down I think it should be always on

If you are not using the computer turn it of do not leave on standby

Thanks for the input lads, the screen blanking is occuring when I am using the PC so turning off the screensaver would have no desirable effect, in fact the screensaver being stable proves it is not the monitor at fault, the power management settings are correctly set as 'Always on' I suspect the problem lies in the on-board graphics SIS 650 card. It is quite disconcerting for the screen to blank out in the middle of your work so any help would be appreciated.

My TFT's so this, they are just refreshing.

No Gaz the screen just totally blanks out for about 1 second then comes back on again

I had same problem, contacted the manufacturers ProView on 01234 344206, they will need the monitor serial number, product number, the product series number [starts with PK or PRO] and the model number, they will then give you a reference number and arrange a swap date with no argument or hassle, I had 2 go in the first 3 months, had this one since June 02 and no further problems. better than lugging it back to PCW
