Default 205bw Broken?

Ok so at first I thought it was a graphics heat issue but now thats not the case. I get red boxes soemtimes through my screen but that is fixed by switching monitor inputs back and forth or turning the monitor on and off. Now today I went to use my computer and the screen kept flashing on and off like 1 sec of desktop and 1 sec of black and so forth. I turned off the monitor and turned it back on and it works again. Monitor issue?

I would say it is a monitor problem. But, if you want to know for sure...try the monitor on a different computer, or, try a different monitor on your computer.

Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870
