Geforce 8800GT - monitor switching on and off

  1. Hiya I have a problem with my monitor flashing on and off during boot up. I am unable to get into safe mode because of this, and when doing a dxdiag direct3d test the monitor switches itself on/off as well. Also my PC reports the graphics card as a 8600GT and not the 8800GT.

    My PC specs are

    Mobo - Asrock Conroe1333-D667
    CPU - Intel Pentium D 3GHZ
    GFX - INNO3d Nvidia 8800GT (even though pc says 8600GT)
    RAM - Crucial 2gig DDR2
    HD - Seagate 250G SATA11
    BIOS Version P1.30

    The Monitor is a GNR 19" TFT monitor.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Maybe the monitor is going on the fritz or the graphics card is ready to "kick the bucket"
