I have just bought a new samsung syncmaster 20 inch lcd monitor. I have put it together installed the drivers etc etc and now every 10 mins the screen goes black and then just as quickly the picture comes back. Is this a refresh rate problem? Is it serious?

Bail.
Return the unit; these are known to have faulty caps (check another post on here for a PDF file from Doug Johnson (IIRC) for the fix).
I'm stuck with 2 of these $350 (at the time) units. I'm screwed. You can still bail out and get something that doesn't have known design / part issues.

Its the poblem of SCREENSAVER which gets activated every 10 minutes.

In Control Panel, go to Display Settings / Personalise - - - - -> In Screen Saver select NONE.

Your problem will be solved for sure.

Spend $50 to $100 at any TV/video repair-shop, for trouble-shooting and repair.

Or, spend $40 to $50 to buy a used 17-inch LCD screen, or $100 to buy a new 19-inch LCD screen.

Your screen's ratio is oriented to playing wide screen formatted movies. Set your screen resolution to a ratio that's more or less 2 to 1 and you'll have a more realistic depiction of people on photos.
