my mom has been getting the same prob with a rm laptop. a restart seems to cure the prob but it ocasionaly comes back again. what causes it i have no idea and would be nice to no!

u got a spare crp monitor or can u get hold of one for a time m8? if so try with that and see what happens. if its a lcd they arent that reliable at the moment dew to it still being relativly new technology. you only get 1 year garantee from the leading manifacturesr so it jus shows dont it! :)
