Hi, I'm having problems with my monitor, or maybe the computer itself. Everything works fine when I'm actually using the computer but if I leave it alone for an hour or so, the monitor turns off and won't come back on. I have to restart the whole computer in order to get it up again. Before this started, I had the system turn off the monitor instead of using a screensaver and the mouse and keyboard always woke it back up again. Now I don't have any power save options set (everything is set to "never turn off") and I still don't have the screen saver activated. I have a HannsG JC199D LCD monitor, XP Pro SP3, and a NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GSO graphics card. I've tried updating the graphics driver, turning off hardware acceleration, and setting the keyboard and mouse to wake up the computer from standby. Nothing's worked! Anybody have any other suggestions? Thanks!
*EDIT* After I posted this I tried playing World of Warcraft, but the game keeps freezing and the processor is making a lot of noise. Sounds like its trying to work too hard, keeps whining. I can't get WoW to work long enough to adjust the video settings. Maybe its an issue with the graphics card?
