intermittent black screen

Hi. When using PC, i am continually being interupted by the screen on my monitor - HANNS-G - turning black for a second or two, with the message ADJUSTING. The computer itself continues to work during the "BLACKOUT" ---I am able to continue typing this message during these blackouts. The monitor is around 6 years old. Any suggestions please, or is it a simple case of the monitor dying a slow death? My OS windows XP. Thank you.

Check all connections between PC and monitor to see if they are tight and/or you could try another cable if you have a spare. You could also check your display settings in Control Panel. In Win7 they are accessed via Display - Advanced Settings - Adjust Resolution (properties) - Screen Refresh Rate. You should find something similar to that for XP. Adjust the Refresh Rate - Apply - OK to see if that makes any difference.
