Red face Linux Mint 9 KDE: Screen Splashing/Blanking

I recently installed Mint 9 using/trying KDE, which I found very intuitive and feature-rich.

However, a snag soon appeared. The screen started to blank every few seconds or minute. This is pretty annoying. I have so far tried every tried-and-tested means available, exhaustively, to no avail.

Even their website has this as a known issue, yet the solution (i,e configuring the screen resolution) doesn't seem to work for me.

Any help out there?

Maybe a driver problem?
