Monitor Keeps Going Black
OK, I was wondering if some kind soul could help me here. My first post on the boards but they look great.
Anyway, here is my issue:
I recently just upgraded my homebuilt system to a RAID0 Array with 2 SATA 200GB drives.
Obviously I had to reinstall windows and all. Strangely, after this enhancement, I started to get a weird problem, namely my monitor will go black, the light on it will stay green (i.e. it's not hibernating) but there's nothing there.
Turning the monitor off and on will bring things back to life. This can happen when I'm working on the PC, or when it's just sitting there.
I've already tried the obvious things: I've switched out Monitors and I've switched out the Video Card - to no avail. The problem persisted.
So, I'm left with it being a software issue or hardware conflict or something. But there are no obvious conflicts in Device Manager.
So, the details:
MB: ASUS P4P800 Deluxe
Video Card: ASUS ATI 9600XT
1 GB of Corsair RAM
XP Home with SP1 and all available Updates from MS
All the drivers are up to date as well, for everything. The one thing that I'm curious about is could it possibly be some conflict between the IRQ port that the Video Card is using and the Intel 82801ER Raid Controller?
Sorry for the novel, thanks in advance for anyone's help.
