Recently my screen has stopped recognizing my computer. I can hear windows boot up but cannot get any picture. Using the same monitor and HDMI cable I hooked up my XBOX and played for hours without any issues. I was having video card issues so I replaced it with a GEFORCE 770. I am still having the same issue. Sometimes it will come on for a bit then the screen will just turn off again. I do bit have sleep turned on. Please help!

Welcome,

I don't think 'sleep' is the problem at this point. What is your security software? Is it current and have you run any other scans?

Are your video drivers current?

Keep us posted

Drivers are updated and security is McAfee which is up to date.
Yes ran a full scan, I'll try again right now if the screen pops up.

Have you looked at the possibility of a heat problem with the graphics card? I think you have eliminated the cable and monitor so it may be time to go internal.

Try going into safemode and disable the set sleep option. It's also possible as to what Dick has observed that the problem lies within the replaced card itself.

Well...it's the computer which must recognize the monitor...have you tried a different monitor with this system?
