For some time now my moniter screen goes black at random times. I am not working on anything in particular. It will happen using the internet or my software. The moniter light stays green the whole time which is usually just a few seconds, but it will do it over and over sometimes and at other times I have no problem. If I am typing, the stuff will appear as usual when it reappears. I am using Windows XP Home Edition on a Dell Dimension 4500S. Any ideas or suggestions will be appreciated. :wtf:

Hi,
I guess you've checked all monitor cables are all the way in etc.
I had the same on an old monitor once. Turned out the monitor was faulty and had to be replaced.

Thanks, I'll check the cables first. The monitor along with the hard drive is about 2 years old.
