Since installing system 8.1 on my 9500/180MP (160mb RAM), my Apple multi-scan 17" monitor momentarily fritzes (goes to black for less than a second) after it's begun to load system 8.1.  This happens when I start or restart.  I've checked the connections and the monitor settings...any ideas?

Thats your monitor either changing resolutions or color depth at startup to match your system prefs. Being a multi-sync monitor it probably has a default like 640x480 and you are probably running at higher. It has to switch sometime. Why not at startup? So dont worry about it...its normal..Oh yeah...i believe the 9500's also came with an onboard IxMicro video card and that will also cause the flicker.
