Not sure if I am in the correct forum for this question but, please indulge me. I use a VPN for downloading Netflix as I live in Japan and this bloody country has not allowed free downloading of Netflix from the US. Anyway, I have found lately that after about 20 minutes of viewing the monitor will go black, I will move the mouse and there is apparently no problem. Not a big thing, although somewhat annoying. Another thing is the pixilation on some programs. Maybe I've not got a fast enough video card (?). Not sure of the reason. Below for what i am running, thanks from an old retired sailor.
