Hi all. I'm having some issues with my monitor losing the signal, and I cant figure it out for the life of me. Here's what's going on. Today I downloaded two Windows updates, Security fix for IE 8 and the fix for visual C++ 2005 service pack. After those downloaded, but before they installed, my monitor cut out. It's happened a few times before and a simple restart fixes it, but not this time. The updates installed after the restart, then it cut out again. I then went to get current drivers for my video card but that did not help. I went into the the control panel, to the list of downloaded updates thinking that they might have something to do with my issue, but only the security fix for IE8 was listed and not the other. However, Windows update says I have both. Odd. I was thinking that the C++ update was the cause of this, but I cant find it to uninstall it. The other thing I noticed is when my monitor cuts out. The longer my pc is off, the longer I have to try and figure it out and vise versa. I popped open the side panel and my video card looks fine and the cooling fan on it still works. I'm at a loss here. As for my pc, its an E-Machines w3615 with 2gb of ram, Intel Pentium 4 3ghz processor and Vista 32. My video card is a GeForce 7900gs. I'm sorry about the wall of text, but I'm trying to be thorough as possible. Thanks in advance for the help.
