Specs: Windows XP
Just got this nice-price monitor to replace a failing older one. Color reproduction is not great (might just need more tweaking), but very light weight let me mount it on a cantilever out from desk so i can read it w/o glasses.

Problem: every few minutes, it seems to reset itself. Image blanks, and Acer start screen comes on. Only a minor annoyance while working, but very inconvenient when watching videos.

I'm using the monitor (VGA) cable to my Vaio RA-840g desktop running WinXP SP3, in case this matters. Connections seem secure. Power plug also secure.

Any ideas what might be wrong? Monitor works great most of the time, and it's a long drive to return it.

All help appreciated-

Well, problems got worse, and old monitor still worked, so probably wasn't the PC. I returned it as defective.
