So this is the 2nd time this has come up so I wanted to get some extra opinions on this. Last night i was playing WAR Online, my computer had been on for most of the day and running perfect when all of a sudden my monitor just goes into hibernation. It just went black, displayed the no DVI signal and refused to respond when attempting to do anything to bring it out of hibernation, the only solution was to reset the computer Via the button. The first time i have come across this problem was actually a month ago when i first updgraded to the new Nvidia 180.48 drivers, i had been using nvidias Performance package as well for overclocking of my GPU. After upgrading to 180.48 the monitor would cut out upon starting the computer up right after windows loads i'd see my desktop background for a second, then the monitor would shut off. I knew at this time that it had to be the drivers. i uninstalled everything to do with my Nvidia drivers, including the Performance software for overclocking, ran Driver cleaner Pro and reinstalled 180.48 and have been fine now untill last night.
Im sure this is not a heat issue with my Graphics card as i was running GPUZ to monitor gpu heat after the first time it happened last night. My Gpu temps were around 38c idle and 55c max under gaming load.
