First and simplest verify that the power cord is fully plugged into the back of the monitor (don't just look, push on it.) and the wall. I've responded to many similar calls where the plug was loose.

My money is on a bad video card.
When '97 came out, a lot of people needed to upgrade. Word is very Video intensive.

Could be graphics drivers.

How do you get it ack on, reboot or from Task Manager, is it in standby mode and a mouse wiggle brings it back?

Still thinking a graphics driver though.

I would suggest that you install the service packs 1 & 2 for Office 97. There is a laundry list of problems (Q171068 WD97: Word Uses 100 percent of the CPU While Typing) that they fix. Good luck.
