    At my customer, 3 days a week I use this one computer. Typically I always connect to my terminal server at my office for email and such. For the past two days, however, when I connect to the terminal server, it will work for about 5 minutes or so, and then I'll lose my display. I can't do anything to bring it back.

    The display works fine when I'm strictly working locally on my operating system, it only causes a problem when I open up RDP and am playing inside of that for a short while. Nothing in the system has changed to my knowledge, and I can't really think of what would affect anything like that. The drivers aren't bad and I haven't had a problem with this sort of thing before. The computer still appears to be working fine when I lose my display. I am not sure if it's me hearing things or not, but it sounds like I hear 3 clicks inside the computer when it happens.

    Does anyone have any idea what this could possibly be? My Video Card is an Intel 82865G Graphics Controller, integrated into the dell machine that I am using.

    Thanks!
