Strange behavior in X



Hi,
  I'm getting some weird display behavior in X and I need some help.  I
do a lot of work using virtual consoles.  Quite often when I'm in a
virtual console, if I press ctrl-alt-f7 to get back to X, my screen
goes blank.  I try to go back to a virtual console by pressing
ctrl-alt-f1 (or f2 - f6) and the screen remains blank.  I have to
reboot the computer by either pressing ctrl-alt-delete (which usually
works) or by pressing the reset button or power switch.  This wouldn't
be so bad if it were a once-in-a-while thing, but it happens very
often, like more than once a day.  One of the reasons I switched to
Linux from Windoze was because I could keep it running for
days/weeks/months without having to reboot.  With this weird behavior
I'm getting, I have to reboot my computer several times a day, which
isn't much better than Windoze.  Can anybody help me out here? Thanks.

Casey
