A few problems/ mostly hardware
I have a 17 inch flat, from Hyundai L70s. My graphic card is a Radeon 7200 or so, I forget.
As of 3 or 4 days ago, I would be viewing a site or doing work, and my monitor would just go blank, pitch black like it was turned off. However, the power light was still on. I found that if I turned the monitor off and back on it would work again. But this problem kept happening throughout the day. Than everything was fine for a few days, and now my monitor is totally broken. The light that indicates the ON/OFF status of the monitor turns on, than goes off and on and off...and it won't stop, and the screen itself is pitch black, empty.
I researched the L70s series to look for complaints and problems, but it seems like everyone's been pretty satisfied with it. The only thing I can think of, is that I know my graphic card is starting to ware down and not work as well as it use to. My computer freezes when I watch any type of video or view highend flash sites, however that could just be a virus I dunno, I've checked. Anyway, if anyone has the slightest idea of what to do please help me out.
PS - I noticed that around 6-7 months after each reformat I do, my computer starts to have the same problems again: Crashes while viewing video. listening to MP3s, computer gets really slowed down, hard time booting up (multiple restarts before it works). Whats going on? I usually go through and delete files stored in the temp. internet folder, I get rid of unused data, my hdrive always has 10-14GBs of empty space as well.
As always thanks for the help, advice, time and effort on your part.
