I'm currently running a cusotm built AMD 2200+, A7N8X-X mobo, with 512 MB of Ram, and a 40 gb Hitachi Hard drive, with a GeForce FX5200. The problem I am experiencing is that using certain applications, my screen goes black momentarily, then comes back up, sometimes with a scrambled screen or data. I attempted to take out the graphics card and put it back in, and afterwards I also switched to my older power supply. The problem still persists, including with the latest drivers. Could the problem possibly exist with the memory in terms of the processes are getting jambled somehow and the screen goes black to that effect? Or is it another component with my computer? In addition to this problem, music while playing does not turn off at all during this 'black out'. Any help would be appreciated.

Turned out to be the lone memory slot. I'm not sure why ASUS separated the memory slots, but I switched the memory and it works beautifully.
