Recently I've been witnessing my monitor restart by itself, without there being any power loss involved. This usually happens while I'm watching something on youtube. I believe all of my drivers are up to date, so I'm not sure what could be causing this.

Can you please explain what you mean when you say your monitor restarts?

1) Does the color of the light on the front of the display change when it goes dark?

2) Have you tried a different display? If not, please do so.

1) No, it stays the same.

2) It turns out there's only one display option for this monitor. I tried changing the screen resolution but that didn't seem to work.

I hope my monitor isn't dying on me, I've only had this thing for a year.

I meant you should plug in a different monitor (display) to your computer and see if that works properly (or try your monitor on a different computer)

My apologies then.

I switched monitors with another computer and was unable to replicate the original result. No restarts, power loss, nothing. I Switched back, and it only restarted once. So far, everything seems to be working. Hope it stays that way.

If not, the monitor needs to be replaced.
