hi, i've been having this problem for a week now, my monitor keeps powering off at first i thought it was windows xp's power settings and i went in a changed them to never and disabled the screen saver, that was'nt it, i switched monitors , nope, then i switched graphic cards, still the same problem, i booted in safemode to see if it was a software problem it did the same thing........i'm baffled this is the first time i have encountered anything like this, it happens about a half hour into booting up it's weird cause the monitor shuts off (even clicking the monitors power button on and off dosent help) but the computer itself is still running fine.............please anyone , help :thumbsup: thanx in advance. :huh:

oh, i also ran a virus scan that did'nt help either :-)

Sounds as if it could be the video card overheating. Do you know what kind of video card you have? Have you checked it to see if it has a fan and if the fan has stopped running?

You don't have a "sleep" button or something like that on your keyboard?
