Ever since I had my machine last June, it has blanked the screen for a couple of seconds every now and then - probably once or twice a day.

Is this serious and likely to get worse - should I send it back before the warranty runs out?

Could it have anything to do with Flashcards. I don't know what this is, but every time I boot up, it refuses to quit.

thanks for any suggestions.

I think itís not easy to say if this could be an serious hardware issue or only an driver issue.

Iíve got some questions;
First of all; did you check if a BIOS update and/or the graphic card driver update could helps? Mostly such updates make wonders ;)

How about new OS installation from the recovery CD? Did you check if the same issue appears on fresh installed OS from the recovery CD?

I think this should be checked firstly.
