I have recently been experiencing the monitor blanking and sometimes the whole computer then shuts down and restarts itself. Once the screen blanks I can only rarely get it back without restarting the computer. The last time this happened I did notice a message at the bottom of the screen saying'Out Of Timing V...' and I could not catch the rest as the computer restarted. I did wonder if this was a time-out (idle, as the setting was at 20 minutes ) on the Internet but on the last occasion I was not connected to Broadband at all.
I do not think this has anything to do with overheating as all I was working on last time was a sort Word document and the computer was not in a warm area.
Wee Eddie - I checked the google link. Interesting it refers to problems with mohernboards Mesh computers using Radeon cards. That is mine. Davey from Mesh had posted on this matter showing on the Google link.
My note from the Error Log indicates Dad9.exe. I just wonder if there is a conflict with Corel Wordperfect that resides on my computer for occasional use; that has a DAD icon and program and maybe that is trying to connect to the Internet? Am I grasping at straws here? I have now deleted the DAD program within Wordperfect Suite.
You may have hit the nail on the head with this! The reference to the Error Message is remarkably what I had. Although Wordperfect has not been running, this dreaded Desktop Application Director may well have been. However your link states that the problem may occur if the display settings are altered whist the DAD program is running. The display settings were not changed! Having now deleted the DAD element of WP I shall be interested to see if the problem is solved.
