Monitor Blinking My LCD monitor has been blinking (2 sec blank - 1 sec on) for a couple of days now. I connected the monitor onto another computer and it still blinked. I also fixed another monitor to the same computer and it worked fine. I changed the power code and switched off speakers and no difference. Any suggestion fix would be appreciated. I think this is a software or OS issue I have a KVM switch with 2 CPU in one I have WVU and the other has WXP. In the Vista CPU, the monitor blinks
