Ok, here is the situation. For some reason my computer at home has started doing something interesting. When you go to boot it up, the screen will only flash the desktop on for a split second then it blacks out. It will do this about every 2 seconds. You catch a glimpse of the screen, then black. The power light also goes on with the screen flash, then off. Now, my suspicions are that the monitor is crapping out. But, I figured it could also be the graphics card. The computer is only a year old and a top of the line HP multimedia machine. I will swap in another monitor when I get home today. If that monitor works, then it is new monitor time. I will of course be forced to upgrade. If the same thing happens with the other monitor, what say ye?
