CRT turns on and off randomly - thoughts

    Hey guys,

    About a week and a half ago my CRT (19" AOC flat CRT) started turning on
    and off. It then stopped for a few days and just began doing it again.

    Does anyone have any thoughts? A couple of times it interfered with my
    computer (the computer froze) making me think it's a hardware issue
    (maybe the mobo is going). Or the two might be unrelated.

    I'm not sure if there is an RF signal that could turn off a CRT monitor,
    but as a precaution I looked around, and unless it's from someone
    outside of my house, there have been no new RF signals in my area.

    Thanks in advance,

    Could be your monitor cannot keep up with your refresh rate. Try changing
    your Htz settings, failing that it will be a display hardware fault maybe an
    overheating graphics card/chip or similar.

    I have had this problem with mine for months now, but it hasn't affected the
    rest of my system so I've grown used to it. Also accompanying the off/on
    symptom is a horizontally shrunk screen.
