I have a Viewsonic Monitor and currently running XP pro but, periodically the display cuts out. I do not get the "No Signal" message and I can turn the monitor off then back on again and I have a my desktop back. Recently, though this has only returned the desktop for 3-4 seconds and then the screen goes black again.

I have removed the graphics card as I thought that may be broken but, the problem has occurred again using only the onboard graphics. I have removed all the drivers and reinstalled the relevant drviers for onboard graphics and figure that I do not have a driver conflict - everything was okay for about a week and now the problems is back again. The cable is in perfect condition and everything seems to fine with the monitor except the periodic blackout.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am now completely stumped.

Have you looked in the device manager for any conflicts?
Also, I know this sounds silly, but it happens. Are both the cables securely tied in, I have a friend who is having similar problems, it turned out that the power cable was not in the monitor correctly.

Do you have a spare monitor to test on the system to rule out system trouble?
