At any random time I'm on my computer, the monitor screen will fade to a dark shade, then just go pitch black, while it's still on. If you turn the monitor off and back on it will stay normal for maybe a second before it goes pitch black again. The only way i can keep it from going black screen is by slapping the back of my monitor and it goes back to normal for awhile.

:thumbsup: I have a hp pavilion a712n with a nvidia geforce x card i installed myself. any my monitor is a hp pavilion f1703

help please. i dont know what to do :flowers:

Try a rubber hammer instead - it will prevent you from hurting your hand.

Seriously - your monitor is going. Time to think about replacement.

Check the cable, and if it is tight on the computer connection, there's not much more to be done.
