    In the past week my computer screen has been flickering and going black a lot, it does not lose power, but it goes black for a few seconds and them comes back and a few seconds later it goes black again. Sometimes it will work for a few hours before it starts the flickeing. I have a Samsung SyncMaster 712N LCD screen and a Nvidia GeForce FX 5700LE. I dont understand why it is doing this all of a sudden, it worked fine the first few months I had it. Also the screen resolution is at its optimum setting 1280X 1024. Can someone please help me?

    You are having a problem with the LCD screen's Flourescent backlight. If the screen is still under warranty send it in for repairs.

    If you want to do a little home research....see if a tap on the edges brings it back on. That would indicate a loose connection of some type.

    Hmmm....is there anything else that could be wrong....tapping it doesnt bring it back....it works fine almost all day but when it gets to be around 6:30pm everynight the screen starts to do this, its always around the same time of day....wat could be causing this....it seems like if there was a light problem with would do this more often.

    Well there is always the possibility that SOMETHING in your vicinity happens at around 6:30pm every night that causes electrical interference that brings on your symptoms? So you have to become Sherlock Holmes!
