What should I do? Why is this happening?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Is it while you're working or after it's idle for a little while? – Dennis Williamson Dec 8 '10 at 10:28
while working in Freescale's code warrior tool (both eclipse based and classic one ) – Renjith G Dec 8 '10 at 10:45
How long does it stay black? Does it come back on again? Is the plug for the monitor falling out? – Joel Spolsky Dec 9 '10 at 4:00
when i do a build in code warrior version 3.0 , the black out happens and it stays for the whole compilation to complete. – Renjith G Dec 9 '10 at 11:25

There might be lot of issue causing this, are you getting any error or just getting Black Screen?

Try changing your RAM slot OR use chkdsk tool it will resolve issue if any file type corrupted.

Good Luck :)
