While playing games like counter strike 1.6 and running ventrilo at the same time my monitor turns black saying analog/digital its a new samsung that i bought last week... so yeah i was playing cs 1.6 i threw a smoke and i look at it and than turn back than my monitor turn black but i can still hear the fans spinning and such seems like its on but my monitor is all black and i dont see anything at all.. so i usually just hold down my power button intill it turns off and i just turn it back on... Can this be a hardware issue or a issue i can fix without buying anything new or replacing anything?? It also turns pitch black when i run movies or video files on vlc media player or load alot of images on mozilla firefox..... and usually my cpu usage is always at 100% usage but i think i fix it with ad aware 08 by deleting some spywares from cookies.. Its also happening when i run small programs such as AIM(aol instand messenger) and winamp... It also does it when im on firefox loading java/adobe flash stuff.. youtube is fine...
My Pc is a Dell Optiflex gx270 with a Nvdia Geforce 4 MX 440 with agp8x and im using a samsung syncmaster 953BW 19 Inch(my monitor)
