Really wierd blinking problem, please help
Not sure if this is a hardwear related, os related or program related problem but Its very wierd indeed..
I was using my comp normally like I always do, today.. i used it for about 3 hours running a game, and then i had an unusual graphics glitch, everything went apesh*t on me.. colors were mashed all over my screen, compter got really slow, etc.. so i figured it might of been a ram depletion, so i rebooted comp and even on the windows loading screen while its still in dos, i had graphic problems, the windows logo was all distorted in different colors..
So i turned off the comp again, thinking my vid. card might of been over heated or somehting, but when I went back on after abuot 20 minutes, there was still a problem and still is up to this point.. the problem now is, I am constantly getting monitor blinks, the type of blinks you get when you switch resolutions in windows, it does a quick blink, but this is constant.. I keep getting it every 5 seconds, it doesnt exactly switch resolustions on me, but it seems like it for a split second, then it goes back.. very annoying, i dont know what to do, i ghtought it might of been a virus, but mcafee didnt find anything..
One other wierd thing is, I chcked my sygate firewall for any logs, and found a program running called "spool application", it was blocked from getting to my system by default, and i ended its procsess but i think that might have something to do with it?
I checked my heating temps on MbM, running at 45c cpu so its not that.. My comptuer specs are 512 ddr ram, geforce 4 ti 4400 128mb, 1.5 ghz athlon 1800+, sony monitor..
The only other thing I can think of is my monitor maybe starting to burn out? I have been leavit on alot, and have had it for about 2 years now, but can that be it so soon?
