Default External monitor randomly loses video - 09-01-2010, 04:30 AM

I am using my Dell Mini 9 with a Viewsonic external monitor, external keyboard and mouse.

Video mode is set to display on external monitor only.

From time to time, the screen goes all black or all white on the external monitor. Removing the VGA cable and reinstalling does not help. Cycling video mode to netbook's own LCD display, both displays at the same time and then to external monitor does not help.

Putting Dell Mini to standby and bringing back recovers the video on the external monitor.

Sometimes it will not do this for hours, sometimes it does it 3 times within 1 hour.

Operating system is XP (SP3).

Has anybody else had the same problem ?
