Have you secured the connections at both ends? I would take both ends and look at the pins to make sure none are bent or missing.

My monitor - a 25" Samsung SyncMaster P2570 - goes black, then stuggles to find video signal. On reboot, it works again.
Video card - a EVGA GTX 460 - has already been replaced thinking the card was the problem.
So, in short, the problem still exists.
Any ideas - Windows 7 64-bit?
ASUS motherboard?
I'm no dummy, but I'm baffled.

I'd start your own post. Main reason is, i'm the only one looking at this rather then the whole community.

Hi, I have almost the same proble and I struggle to find an answer. Since I finished assembling my new computer two weeks ago, a strange thing happens. My monitor goes black for one-two seconds and then turns back again as if nothing had happened.
This occured 3 time so far, in two weeks, twice when I was openning control panel, exactly on that moment and once in Starcraft 2, but the image also came back as if it was a refresh. When it first happened I didn`t pay too much attention but when I saw the same situation repeats I got worried.

The temperatures of the CPU and Graphic card are OK, the system does not overheat.

I mention that I reinstalled Windows 7 64-Bit, everything else goes fine I don`t have any other problem, I have all the drivers of the motherboard, graphics and everything else, even Bios updated!

My computer specifications are:

- Samsung BX2450, 24" Wide Monitor;
- Asus P6X58-D Premium motherboard;
- I7 950, 3.07 Ghz Pentium processor;
- Leadtek GeForce GTX 850 graphic card;
- Corsair 850 wats PSU;
- Kingston 64 GB SSD;
- Western Digital 1 TB, RE3 - enterprise edition HDD.
- Corsair 6 GB DDRAM 3, 1333 Mhz.

Please help me to find a solution, the warranty I have is for every piece separately and I can get all the central unit to service, I must know for sure which part has problems!

I just purchased a new computer with Windows 7 and I'm having the same problem. For no reason at all the screen goes blank for a second then comes back on. Did you ever find a solution?

My problem is solved.
My ram voltage was at 1.65V but it should be at 1.5V.
That my case, but check your voltage.
Good luck.
