Don't rush ahead of yourself Jack. It could be that. It could be a defective monitor. It could be a bad cable. It could be a s/w problem. But start at the easiest things to test first please. OK? :)

ya i know but i unplugged the cards fan because it was really loud and now have a pci fan blowing on it and the machine wasn't turned off for a while so i thought it might be it. and also since it happened last night i turned off my pc to let it cool down and now it hasn't done it again since.
