I have a problem with the monitor (Sampo AlphaScan 712).
Every time is start windows xp pro, the monitor goes black for a second and comes back.
I have a GForce 4 card and use the 41.09 drivers.
what as its booting up? there is a point where it switches from general VGA driver to the specific windows driver where it will give a slow flash. and there also seems a point it doesn't reset video as tsr's are loading then blinks when done as video is reset.........
those little things are normal if its only a small flash on boot and is fine rest of time and works as normal i wouldn't get excited
mine run multihead matrox cards, and I've built ones with radion and gforce cards and they all act the same.
It happens from time to time...both when no programs are running, but also during games or a third thing. I've tried lowering the refresh rate and using 16 bit colors as well, but no luck. It's not been going on for very long and it happens in periods....i just can't figure it out....I'm starting to think my monitor is heading downhill
