I feel like I went thru this YEARS ago...like 8-10yrs ago.
Screen will freeze but I can still see my mouse moving. I can technically click on things but I wont see the results until the screen "refresh" is over. I'm thinking the keyboard works during this but havent tested it (ie type a sentence while it is frozen, it SHOULD appear when the screen flickers black and comes back on).
Like title says, it only lasts about 5-7 seconds. Then the screen will go black for a sec or two, but then come right back on as if nothing had happened. Kinda scary sometimes...but it does consistently resume functioning normally.
Its an AMD 4500HD series. Not at my PC at the moment so I cant offer much more specs.
Is this a driver or ATI settings/configuration issue? Windows 7 setting issue? I bought the card used...could it be faulty
