    Dual Monitors flickering

    Not sure whats going on here, but its driving me crazy. Came back from a weekend away, sit down at the pc, and the monitors start turning on and off randomly.

    I've tried them in different sockets, and it still happens. They stay off for between one and 3 seconds, and i've just noticed that they appear to be getting no signal from the GFX card during these off periods.

    Sometimes its fine for a couple of minutes, other times it spends 20 seconds just flickering

    Not for a couple of days. Appears to be fine now i've left it off overnight, might have been an overheating issue with the GFX card. Got some fans on it now and i'll see what happens.

    Cheers


    Edit: its back, and i'm sure its the card cause both monitors wouldn't fail at the same time.

    Edit 2: Digital thermometer says the gfx cooler is at 42c, yet its still got issues. I think the card needs replacing

    Got a GeForce by any chance?

    I get this one mine sometimes. Updating/reinstalling drivers tends to fix it.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();
