Not sure how to correct this one but would welcome any advice please. I have a compaq computer and an AOC flatscreen monitor. Yesterday the electricity suddenly went off for a second whist I was online. I had to switch on again as I was in the middle of something. THinking that lightening doesn't strike twice I switched back on again and was once more happily online having almost forgotten about it when it suddenly happened again. I stayed offline for the rest of the evening but today, I am getting this message. Have I got to go and buy a new computer now or is there a cure?
:huh: :thumbsup: :huh:

When does this message occur? Do you see any type of screen when you turn it on?

I see the screen and the details online but the message comes up in a white box with red type in the middle of the screen and the screen flashes pale and dark then resumes - this happens every ten or so seconds.
