|alright, this is a problem that my friend keeps getting and its really confusing both of us|
this is what he asked me to say:
please someone has to know the solution to this, or he will never stop nagging me!
I have been having this problem for a few days now. When i turn on my computer it works fine for about ten minutes and then the monitor turns gray for a second and then turns black. It then stays black or if i am lucky turns back on after a few seconds. If it does turn back on the graphics are messed up and then it turns back off again. If i reset the computer it often dosen't work until i leave it for an hour
When the computer is turned off but the monitor is still on. The light on it (the monitor) blinks green which i think it means No Signal mode. This also occurs when the screen goes black above. The point of this comment is i think it is not receiving a signal from the graphics card.
I also tried updating the graphics card drivers but it said i had the latest
The computers specs are
Radeon 9550 graphics card (not onboard)
Running Windows Xp
This problem has only been occurring recently below are some pictures of the problem i took as it occurred again this morning

Computer comes back on and some graphics are messed up - After a minute Radeon popped a message up sayign they recovered the graphics Card(the blurry screen was my camera butt he google firefox logo was the computer)
A few seconds later it turned off again
My dad's idea was sticking a fan behind the computer incase it was overheating but it didn't worka s we did this before it crashed
Anyway what do you recommend.
Thankyou in advance
Also sorry if there are any typos
