About a week ago I was playing the new counter strike and my computer made a strange noise and then the monitor crashed. When the monitor crashed it went all black and turned off and nothing I did turned it back on. I restarted my computer and everything was working normally again. I left on vacation for a week and I came back today and started up counter strike and was halfway through a match and same thing happened. I restarted my computer and fired up the internet to search for a solution to my problem when the monitor crashed. This was disturbing because I was not playing a game. I restarted again and this time the monitor crashed about twenty seconds after startup. I have no idea what to do. The monitor is a dell and is four to five years old.

I think its time to try another working monitor as it could be faulty or retiring.

I don't think monitors crash, they retire gracefully. When you turned it back on, did the "on" light come on or were you only looking at the screen? It could be something as simple as loose power or signal wiring. Your description sounds more like the PC is crashing if that is where the noise is coming from. Trying another monitor with your PC or another PC with your monitor per jhayz should localize the problem.

I did a bios upgrade to my motherboard and everything is working fine now however I determined that it was my computer crashing not the monitor. And it only occurs now when I play counter strike so it is a game related error. This topic can probably be close as it is in the wrong section and irrelevant.

Since you heard a noise, if it's not accompanied by fire it could be a fan. Perhaps keep an eye on your temperatures and the graphic card fan/temp in particular. We'll leave at that then. Post in the appropriate forum if you have further troubles.
