I'm in the media center right now using maya, windows media player and photoshop and all of the sudden the screen went black. Is it 'cause I'm using too many programs and the comp can't keep up or what?

Is the monitor still on? It sounds like a hardware problem. Either a) your monitor just went on the fritz or b) your video card just went out.

Yeah, sounds overwhelmed. Of course you restarted before starting to work right.....?

yup, just happened to me again and I found that you can get the screen back by pressing escape for future occurances.
