    This isn't life threatening, but. . . I get a "black hole", 1 inch square, which appears on the screen. It is "transparent" to the cursor operations: does not affect function of cursor or clickable stuff under the hole. It usually is centered on screen, but, sometimes lands on other areas. I have a Samsung monitor and S3 Virge video. Machine is 2+ years old. AMD 300mhz w/ win98. Thanks

    Can you get hold of another monitor? Try it and see if it is the monitor or the video card. That will narrow it down some.
