My computer screen going blank
« on: September 23, 2007, 09:00:57 AM »
Can anyone help me with this?  On occasions (quite regularly) whilst I am typing my screen will suddenly go blank.  When it comes back on after a few seconds, the last few letters I typed are all transposed.  It is driving me crazy and slowing me down.  Any suggestions.  Windows XP.  Touch type, so not being able to see what is on the screen is not affecting my typing.  Working on a lap-top.  Someone, somewhere, must know what is causing this!
It's so frustrating!  The transposed letters are not typing errors, the screen transposes the letters every time it goes blank.  It does the same whether I am online, sending e-mails or working with the word processor.  Help!!!

Perhaps the monitor is faulty. Check if plug(s) are firmly inserted. I expect the letters get transposed because you have lost sight of what you are typing.
