Default Monitor flashing

Hi,

I have recently had trouble with my monitor flashing. At first, the monitor would flash for a couple seconds after it was awakened from "sleep" mode, and then stop. Now, the problem has gotten worse: The monitor will flash from the moment you turn the computer on, and it will only stop when you log into Windows XP and open a program (weird, I know). Similar to what I described above, the screen will also start flashing when it awakens from sleep mode; only now, instead of stopping after a couple seconds, it will continue until a program is opened.

I have an AMD 1800+, an Nvidia Geforce4 MX 440 Video card, 512 MB RAM, and a dell M780 monitor. I have installed the latest video card drivers, to no avail. Any ideas on what could be wrong, or how to fix it?

Thanks for any help.

it sounds like there is a software problem thats all i could guess i dont have a specific answer. but judging by the fact it reacts to programs etc it must be software related. could be a virus i suppose
