The monitor is a Dell Ultrasharp Model 2000FP of older vintage (2003).

Works perfectly, but then suddenly goes black. All computer functions and programs continue to perform 100%. Monitor will restart with simple push on on/off power button. Happens randomly.

No pattern related to specific programs, activities, etc., computer box cool without overheat symptoms. All drivers, including ATI Radeon FireGL 8800 updated.

Appreciate comments, observations and experience.
