is it the monitor or vid card?
ok my friend has a dell dimension 8250, its a p4 at 2.4 gig with 512 mb ram, he got it about 2 years ago and he has replaced 2 monitors from dell, hes on his third he has a nvidia geforce 4 mx 420, and the monitors flickers, no matter what hes doing the monitor will flicker for about 2 seconds, he'll be doing something and then the screen goes black and then goes back, but it takes about 2 or more months before they start to do this, and yes he has the latest drivers fro his card, i was just wondering if anyone knew what could be the problem, thanks for any support.<JiGGleS>
