Screen goes black for a moment

I have an ACER Aspire T671 running Vista HP and all seems to be well but lately I have noticed that the screen goes black for a second or two for no reason I can think of. The screen itself remains powered up and doesn't give the lost signal message. It doesn't seem to affect the computer but is a little bit worrying. it happens about once or twice a day and seems to coincide with when I open a programme. I put in an upgraded graphics card a few months ago with lots of memory etc. Anyone any ideas please?

Regards

My Vista machine does this when opening most programs if it needs to be run as admin,though the black screen is very brief it can be annoying.

We have three Vista machines in the house and they all do this.Basically,nothing to worry about unless this is a new occurrence.
