A good friend recently mentioned that his home desktop was practically inoperable due to a screen issue. Before I go over to take a look at it (either tonight or tomorrow), I figured I would come and see if there are any tips/suggestions/etc that I should have in mind going into this attempted fix. From what he's told me, any time he tries to do something on the computer, be it scroll, click, drag, or drop, the screen cuts out to black for almost a minute! He's not the most computer savvy individual, so that is all the information I could get. He's pretty sure it isn't the an issue with the monitor itself.
Anything you could suggest before I head over there would be greatly appreciated!
ps-not sure if i put this in the proper category/sub-category? Obviously feel free to move it as you mods see fit!
