    Hi gurus.

    Basically, I've done nothing recently to my desktop. It has just started, with more frequent occurance (15 minutes), to:
    Screen goes blank... Monitor is still on and appears to be receiving.
    Sounds goes dead... Speakers still on.
    Computer itself seems to have no change, physically sounds like it hasn't done anything different. Lights still flashing on it, USB wifi dongle still flashing.
    Keyboard CAPS, NUM lock lights won't change when I hit CAPS key.
    Also can't seem to 'WIN button' > 'u' > 'u' to shutdown.

    I haven't noticed any correlation with number of apps running, or CPU usage. But it does seem to happen whilst watching films alot. Then again it happened whilst in excel today, so not sure if this helps.

    So I've been hitting the Power button on the machine to power off, then start again.

    Nightmare, please help!

    Hope you did solve
