  1. With increasing frequency, something is happening when I am playing games or watching movies. The screen suddenly goes blank and displays the message that it is not connected to any source, but the audio continues for a few seconds before it freezes in a quick loop and the only thing I can do is restart the computer. Obviously this is incredibly disruptive to a gameplay/movie experience -- what is happening, is my video card dying?
