monitor "shivers", "blinks", shuts-off
The display on my monitor use to sort of shiver for no reason, then it'd
kinda blink briefly-like it was about to go blank, and now recently; the
display did just shut off, like the bulb went out. But then I just turned
the monitor off, then turned it back on and the image came back up. Is this
a virus? The monitors only about 2-3 yrs. old. Thanks for any suggestions

What happens if you try a different monitor? Sounds like this one is dying.

This is almost certainly a faulty monitor, and nothing to do with Vista or a
virus.

Double check you cables and power plugs on both ends (monitor and
computer/wall outlet).
