Default FX 5200 screen blanking problem

My screen will go blank for 1-2 seconds and then return to normal. There doesn't seem to be a partern. It just happens randomly.

It started happening on the gentoo 2004.1 livecd and after I installed slackware9.1

I am using the stock kernel in both situations. And it happens whether I'm in X or in console... Can anyone help me?

are you using xorg-x11? if you are then there is dpms problem that gives random blanking even if there is mouse and keyboard input.
