It could be that you have a driver for your monitor that is acting up, and that switching it off and on re-initializes the monitor... but I think that's a remote possibility.
Could *could* always try to re-install all drivers that are related to your monitor and video card.
before, it was just the genric drivers or whatever windows uses. When this started, i thought i would download and install the LG driver for my monitor. It didn't help.

Yeah, it sounds like your monitor is not happy. I'd say hook up the old crt monitor you have (or another lcd if you have it) and use it for a while. See if you get similar results or if nothing happens.
I know, i was shocked myself at the voltage it needs. I'll be getting new ram next week to start benching the high numbers
I'll probably end up trying my CRT monitor, i would need to have it hooked up for at least a day to even get lucky, or unlucky depending on how you look at it, as to if it will happen again. It happens randomly.
can my ram cause this? i was thinking, it seems like it started when i was benching and was pushing my ram too far. And a similar looking screen happened, but with a complete lockup. And it has started this since then. Or can ram even cause it?
