I have a recurring problem where my screen goes black - usually whenever i open a folder, click on a new webpage, shut anything down or hit the return key.
This is not constant, and the screen comes back by itself after a couple of seconds.However, occasionally when it returns there are thin vertical white lines on the screen.
It can happen at any time, not just after long periods of pc use.
I have not installed any programmes for a few weeks, and all the leads and connections on my pc (internal and external) seem ok.
I have a GeForce mx 440 with AGPx8 video card and was wondering if it may be on the blink? I hope it is the card and not my TFT monitor as it is out of warranty. I do not have a spare monitor to swap to rule out monitor problems.
If anyone else has had similar problems i would like to hear the outcome, or ideas from any one else.
