Hello, I've been experiencing this problem off and on for the past couple of months, where the computer screen just turns fuzzy and crashes, then five seconds later is completely black (like the monitor is on but is not connected to the computer) I believe this generally happens while I'm surfing the internet (Mozilla) , often (perhaps always, I'm not sure) when I'm watching streaming video.

Ran a couple of different anti-virus programs (Adaware, Malwarebytes' Anti Malware) and Adaware turned up a bunch of cookies.

This has only happened a few times, most of the time everything's fine. Any clue on what could be going on here?

Sounds like a vid driver problem to me...I'd try uninstalling current video drivers and then installing fresh ones (either from CD or manufacturer's website).
