Hi I have a medion 15" TFT, quite often the screen goes black for about a second 8 to 12 times a day. GeForce4 Ti 4200 Windows XP Home Edition

How old is it? The backlight tube may be failing. This is a picture of a laptop backlight, the principle is the same for a TFT click here

It’s only about a year old

Monitors often come with a 3 year guarantee, so check your paperwork. Can you tell us the make and model?

Also, gently waggle the lead. That may indicate a loose connection.

It's a Medion 15" TFT :-)

I also have a 15" Medion TFT monitor that has problems as well. Mine was part of an e-machines package at Curry's which I purchased last November. After a couple of hours use half the screen distorts and if the cursor is in that area it won't work, shortly before it happens a few lines appear across the screen. If I turn the screen off at the power button then back on it is ok until the next time. I've spoken to Medion and the monitors needs to go back, but until I can get a replacement I'm not prepared to be without for up to 28 days. So I'm keeping my eyes open for a spare. TR
