my viewsonic lcd screen occasionally goes blank

  colcol 19:51 17 Jan 2004

I have a 17" ViewSonic VP181B lcd screen supplied with my latest mesh desktop a couple of months ago. ocasionally, the screen goes blank and I need to cut power to the screen and then turn the power back on and the screen comes slowly back to life.

any ideas what is causing this and is it likely to be a hardware or software fault?

I don't mean to be patronising but are you sure it's not a blank screen screensaver kicking in or the power option settings in Control Panel doing this?

thanks for suggestion but no it is neither of these. it seems to happen when I am editing video, watching tv (I have a AIW card) or using aol.
my instinct is that it is a graphics card problem.
