I have been fighting this since I bough this cpu in August. Everyone seems to say that it is resolved with installing a new driver but as mentioned above I have done that and it still goes black then returns. It is random in terms of programs running at the time of the disruption. It is also random in terms of frequency. For example is has happened once while I have typed this entry. How can I fix this or do I need to dump this card for a different one.
