Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a Foxconn 755/760A01 motherboard. The problem i have is that quite often the monitor screen goes black and the mouse goes off although i can still put the caps lock and num lock buttons on and off. This keeps happening several times a night, sometimes far more frequent, sometimes as going into windows xp or can be when playing online in a game. any ideas?


Answers :

This sounds like your video drivers are corrupted.
Find the newest drivers and install them. ATI, nVidia or Foxconn sites will have the latest drivers. If that doesn't help look for a possible heat event...check the log in the BIOS. If you have a mainboard that has heat protection monitoring, check the settings. Clean out the CPU fan and the heat sync...with Blow Off canned air...Hope this helps you...good luck
