    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. I´ve 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.
