I have a Compaq 7360 (Win98) with a Viewsonic 17" monitor. For the past week or so, at random times, when I try to open IExplore or Control Panel, or basically almost any new window, the monitor screen starts going on and off. It will go black, then back to the current window, the black, and so on and so on. I can stop it (usually) by turning the monitor off and back on by pressing the power button very hard. But sometimes even that does no good. Any ideas or thoughts?? All help is GREATLY appreciated. Monitor is about 2 years old and only runs when pc is in use. (3 to 4 hours per day, max.)
Thanks all!!
