|I recently had a nasty virus on my computer. Had to start over with a new install.|
I'd say once a day, maybe more sometimes, my screen turns a solid color, and the monitor loses signal. The color it turns always matches the general color scheme of whatever I'm on when it happens. For example, if steam is open, it will turn dark gray. I've never had it happen during a game or fullscreen app such as Netflix.
A few seconds after it happens, my monitor loses signal and goes to standby. Moving the mouse doesn't do anything, and I have to reset the computer by holding the power button. Never had the problem before I had to reinstall. I hope it's just a driver issue. My graphics card is a GT430 1 GB I bought last November. Could anyone help me out here? Thanks!
