    Sounds like...

    ...a video card or monitor issue to me. Try degaussing the monitor and reseating the video card. Also if you can borrow another monitor plug it in for a few days to see if it happens again. It would help to eliminate cause.

    No noises at all no over heating , no foul smells from moniter or tower ... yes maybe if I use a diff moniter for a few days would allow me to find out if it is the moniter or the card ..... I will reseat the card ..... I am about to buy a new moniter anyways this one is getting a little old so maybe I should do that in a hurry huh!!
