    Hi ...

    I looked for my specific problem in SEARCH but couldn't find it; so I am posting.

    I just bought a new computer (eMachine) from walmart (keep the laughter to a minimum).

    Anyway, Im using the same monitor I used on my old system but it is acting up.

    1. When I install programs... I click them to install them, and the second I click them the screen goes black for a couple seconds and then comes right back up and proceeds with the install.
    This happens every time.

    2. Ill be doing working on the computer (typing in notepad for example) and all the sudden the screen goes black for about 2 seconds then comes right back on.

    I have turned off all the power options and it still does it.

    Im to the point ill try anything if anyone has any ideas. I don't know much about computers so its probably something easy and Im flat out missing it.
