    screen (not computer) freeze

    Regularly the letters on my monitor screen just kind of fade out when I use Outlook98. Only a part of each letter remains visible. This has also happened less frequently, with Windows Explorer or FreeAgent

    i'd try a new video driver or reinstalling it if you have the most current driver.
    did you install any new software prior to noticing the problem?

    Marc,

    A few other suggestions to augment Mary's:

    How is the monitor cable connection?: check that the connection between the monitor and the computer box is not loose. A loose connection can cause the screen to fade. Re-booting can give it a surge that will bring it back temporarily and then it will fade again.

    Have you got a friend/colleague with whom you can temporarily swap monitors? This will tell you if the monitor has an internal fault.

    Virus? Have you done a virus scan recently? Some viruses can create strange screen effects.

    Let's know how you go.
