I have a intermittent problem with my screen suddenly going black and the only way I can get my screen up again is to reboot. However, if I catch the onset of blackness right at the point it happens, eg by moving my mouse, I can sometimes get the screen back. This seems to happen more often when the computer has been turned on for a short time and less of a problem when it's been running awhile.
I have a Pentium 4, 2.53 MHz processor, ASUS motherboard, Nvidia Ti 4200 with AGP8 graphics card and Windows XP.
I recently installed SP3 but the problem was happening before I installed this. I have downloaded the latest drivers from Nvidia but nothing has helped.
Is my graphics card dying or is there another solution?
