    Every few minutes my monitor screen freezes for 20 to 60 seconds. The mouse pointer still moves, but neither mouse nor keyboard commands have any effect. I have installed all updates for both XP and for Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900.

    My system has:
    Pentium 4 630 (3.0GHz)
    2 GB PC-3200 DDR RAM
    XP Media Center, SP 2 with all updates.
    I use one monitor for two computers via a Belkin "Flip" A/B switch.

    Thanks, but no. The thread ran for 18 months with no solution.

    Hello Barry. "The thread ran for 18 months with no solution?" do you still have this problem? if so have you tried disabling the Belkin "Flip" A/B switch to see if helps.

    Good suggestion, but taking the Belkin out of the loop entirely has no effect.

    I should have mentioned earlier that sound also stops when the system refuses to accept mouse or keyboard commands.
