Hey all,

 

So I've been having intermittent video output issues to my monitor recently. Everything will be fine, then all of a sudden the screen will go change to (see attached picture) for like half a second, then go back to normal. It has happened when browsing the web, playing games, even watching video.

 

It got really bad this evening for a little bit; it was happening about every 15 seconds.

 

I reset the computer, and it hasn't happened again...yet...

 

Hoping it's the monitor, but realize it could be the video card as well (or hell, it's a computer...could be about anything I guess. haha)

 

Anyway, wanted to see if anyone had seen anything like this before.

 

Thanks for taking the time to read!

One way to be sure is to attach your machine to another monitor and see if it still happens.

 

EDIT... also check/replace lead from PC to monitor

If you have on board graphic plug into that to see if the problem is gone.

Well...after doing it's "glitchy thing" for 3 straight days, OF COURSE now that I posted here, it hasn't done it again! (Computer has been restarted a couple times)

 

Bleeping Computers; am I right??

 

Anyway, if it starts up again, I will begin trouble shooting, and will report back here.

 

Thank you all for the suggestions so far!
