ive got a friends Pavilion Slimline s7520n windows xp profesional 64 bit. screen flickers, changes color and freezes and then shuts its self off after these fits, sometimes works great for long periods of time. any sugestions on where to start. i guess the video card is onboard but dont know how to check it. one of the pins to screw monitor into was missing so i added one. Could it be something to do with that plugin? any suggestions would be appriciated. thanks

It probably has built-in Video, if so that has been problematic in the past. I would say open the case and see how how the smaller heatsink is running after approx. 1/2 hour. It should not be so hot you can get burned by touching it.

The other thing to look at is are there any capacitors that are going bad? Bulging tops etc.
