  1. When my gateway pc with windows xp is connected to att yahoo dsl, the screen cycles on and off. When I turn off the DSL, the screen is stable and I can use the icons.
    What do I need to do?

    The screen goes on and off or the computer does? Have you run your antivirus and antispyware programs to see if you have an infection. It is possible that you have an infection that is only presents itself when you are connected.
