I would suggest this is your graphic card in your comp about to go, IF it is then it will do this intermittently untill finally not working at all.
I've had a number do exactly as you describe and have been as I said. Altho check your conection from the comp to the monitor,if the socket/plug is not seated securely that
could also make this happen

LMAO. Ive had a nightmare with my PC. And hopefully will get it fixed next week after being down for over 3 months. Sad Its cost me a fortune in purchasing a new motherboard, sending my old motherboard back to the Uk for repairs under so-called warranty which will cost me 25 to send it to the UK, 20 admin fee and 60 for them to post it back! Tongue Some warranty from Asus and Eclipse Computers! Why not transfer your images to an external hard drive and maybe have a larger hard drive fitted and a new graphic card is not too bad. At least you don[t need an engineer to do that as it is very easy to fit both.
