Problem has been an ongoing issue. I have never bother to try to fix it. It only happens to my desktop. It has now been occurring for well over 5 months.
It seems to always appear or show symptoms after my computer is left on for days. The symptom tends to appear around the third day or after. I will come back from work or some other place and i will click around to get the monitor to wake up. I don't make my computer go to hibernate mode or sleep(quite sure i don't make it go to sleep i think i have it set up to turn off the monitor after 15 minutes). The screen will be on just black. I see a flickering mouse cursor on the screen though. just blinking/flickering. Can't see icons or anything else. Only command that does work is CTRL+ALT+DELETE. Brings up that other menu/window screen. I can see it just fine no flickering or anything alike. As soon as i click on any of the options and that screen is gone it does the same once more.
My temporary solution so far has been holding down the power button and shutting it down.
There are more issues that also appear over time when my computer is left on for days.
I hope i am understandable, never been good at describing.
Anyone care to take a crack at it?
I consider myself very knowledgeable on computers so any information you guys need i think i should be able to provide it quick and fast
