Default Re: [96.29/x86_64/FC6] screen goes blank from time to time.

I'm using a 17" LCD (MAG s776I) on DVI. This is the only non-standard component on my machine. The rest is generic HP stuff.
The machine itself was rock solid under FC5/FC6 with older drivers. Only the 9x.xx seem to exhibit this problem.

Any idea how I can debug this?


Check the kernel log for messages that start with "Xid:".
