I have an 850mhz, running Windows ME, and an Optiquest monitor, and Viper v770 32 meg graphics card...Just recently my monitor takes forever to "refresh" I guess that's what it is. Even after I reboot, it stays black for about 40 seconds, then finally shows the desktop. It also does the same thing when I'm playing a game, and I want to go to desktop, so I do "alt+tab" and it takes forever to show me the desktop. It stays black for so long. It never used to do this before. It started about 4 days ago. I messed with different refresh rates, messed with different colors, etc..etc...still it takes forever. and it never used to do this. Anyone have any ideas?
