On a hardware level:
Here is a list of thing to do:
1. Try another monitor if possible.
2. Try another video card if possible.
3. Take out/replace memory modules.
4. Disable INTERNAL CACHE from within the CMOS SETTINGS.

When it happens does the lights on the keyboard still react (Caps Lock, Scroll Lock)?

Sorry, for number 4 of my previous suggestions, I meant EXTERNAL CACHE rather than internal cache.

There are a few things I could suggest, but that is useless unless you say what operating system you are running, what kind of computer, what kind of video card(s), etc.  We need specs about your computer.

Actually, I typed my suggestion already, but since you didn't post any information, I deleted it, due to its irrelavance.  Besides, why is this question in the Printer section?

Go to the BIOS, and make sure that Power Management is set to "Disabled".

Go to the Control Panels folder, and open Power or whatever it's called in Win 95.  Make sure nothing is set to power off or go into standby mode.

I hope this helps.
