Hello, my Dell 8300 screen suddenly goes black, for no apparent reason, the comes right back. Happens over and over. Ohterwise, machine functions normally. cThat is -- if I click on something between "black periods," machine does what mouse tells it to.

Check the graphics setting to make sure the refresh rate is correct. Your monitor should be set to 75hz.

Make sure your desktop resolution is set to 1280 x 1024.

If neither of those help, try installing the newest video driver.
