    Hi, Can anyone help please?
    On boot-up, the screen is black but at the top of the screen is a line
    5mm deep, all the way across the screen and u can see the characters. I have
    an Asus A78NX motherboard and the Speech Post test is audible and everything
    is said to be ok.
    I changed the graphics card (ATI Radeon 9700Pro) over to an Asus geforce3
    card and things were going well for about an Hour when the same thing
    happened, the information on the screen went to a 5mm depth at top of
    I removed everything and dusted it, re-installed the hardware and software
    and it worked fine for one week and then the same thing happened!
    Next, I removed one of the two sticks of Corsair Ram and it booted fine and
    i had it running for a whole day when the screen blacked out.
    I swopped the Ram over and again things ran well for a day and thern the
    same thing happened! I am at a loss as to what it could be.

  2. I would try a different monitor. This definitely sounds like the problem is
    not on the PC.
