Dell Dimension 4600
3 Gg RAM
Dell LCD monitor
NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200
I've had this computer for about 5-6 years and this problem just started yesterday - no changes that i know of prompted it:
Any time there's a change on screen (app launching, start menu opening, a flyout menu opening, any kind of video stream, opening windows explorer, etc - basically anything
), the monitor goes black until the 'process' is complete, then it comes back on. no error message. the monitor is still on, just a black screen. i can use the computer in Safe Mode just fine, and I also plugged the monitor into another computer and the display was fine, so I feel pretty sure that it's not my monitor. i updated the graphics card drivers, but that didn't seem to have any affect.
Any help would be really great. I appreciate it!
