This happens when im playing this computer game called Combat Arms.


Heres the problem, when im in a game or just in CA somewhere, my screen goes black and it shows me the box that says my monitor isnt connected to my computer. Well I check my connections and they are all fine, I turn off my monitor a couple times and its still like that. This has happened atleast 40 times, making me restart my computer everytime.


Anybody know why it does this? Thanks for the help.

My first thought would be maybe the video card is overheating when playing that particular game. Could you get access to see if the video card has a cooling fan, if that fan is running properly and the fan and fins on the heatsink(s) are not clogged with dust and fluff?
