Hey I have been having some difficulty with my monitor recently. I play a game called counter-strike and when I play it, I'll occasionally alt tab out to do something else and quite frequently, after doing that, my monitor screen will flick off for about 2 seconds then come back on for maybe a second or 2 and then turn off again. It will keep doing this for a while. I have a degauss (i think) button on my monitor and I've learned that if I press that a lot after it starts happening, it will sometimes stop. Otherwise, I have to go back into the game and alt tab out until it stops. This also happens when I simply quit the game, which makes it very difficult to fix because I have to reopen it while practically being blind.
My monitor is a Viewsonic G90f
My video card is an nVidia Geforce 7900 GT/GTO
About a year ago, my power supply failed me so I had to buy another. I bought a relatively cheap one, but I don't know what that is.
I really really really am not tech-savvy at all but I'd like to learn how to deal with these problems myself. This has been happening for about 3 months now.
It also might be worthwhile to mention that sometimes my computer will simply shut down, which I've learned is normally something with the power supply. Either that or the computer is overheating, which doesn't seem to be an issue.
Thanks for any help you might have
