    Blinking Monitor

    Anyone got any ideas as to why my monitor goes off and on, it wil do it 3 or 4 times at about half a second intervals, then settles, it happens every time I turn my printer on, plug in things via USB even conecting to my router.

    Its begining to get on my nerves now, Its not a virus as far as Live One Care is concerned

    Thanx ppl

    The PC probably cannot feed enough power to the things you have plugged in. You are best buying a powered USB hub instead of plugging all the USB stuff into the PC itself.

    It Better be, I'm not known for my patience and there's a river just out the back of the house:viking:

    This may sound daft but have you tried opening it up recently and blowing the dust out from the graphics card and processor,Could be caused by heat build up,
