Hi

I'm trying to help someone fix this annoying problem on an XP computer.

Every half hour this message comes up for about 5mins saying "Factory Burn - In" then it comes up with:

47.5KHZ. 60HZ

it disappears and comes up with random numbers and keeps continuously changing, until about 5 minutes after it drops you back onto what you were previously doing.

Anyone know what to do in this situation?

Thanks.

edit: found a fix

The easy fix - factory burn in message just means the monitor is in a different mode. can be tripped by power spikes etc. here is the fix: Unplug the vga cable from the PC. turn the monitor on to check if its showing factory burn in message. turn the monitor off, then hold the 2 arrow buttons down while turning the monitor back on. you should now see a please check signal cable message. turn you monitor off, plug the VGA cable back in and you are all go.

I would say that it is a monitor issue.

Does the computer have a seperate video card or is it on the motherboard? If you are not sure, you can look at the back of the computer. If it is a seperate video card, then the monitor connection would be all by itself. If it is on-board, then the monitor connection would be in the same cluster of connections as the speakers, parallel and serial ports.

In the case that you have a seperate video card, you may want to try to update the video card drivers.
