Operating system: Windows 7

Security tools: Avast free, Malwarebytes premium, Tddskiller

What is happening: For the last about month I have been getting random wakeups on my computer. My power settings are set to have the computer never go to sleep but turn the display off. I also use the program teamspeak which is a voice chat program and I have noticed my time for idling resets when these issues occur. When I am looking in the event viewer logs I don't see any logins so I am not sure what could be causing it. Avast boot time scan, regular scan, tddskiller and malwarebytes have all been coming up clean. Since I was having these same issues I reinstalled my operating system about 3 days ago but the issues are still persisting. I would like to see if I can get a checkup from someone with more experience in virus removal. Thanks for any help.

Try to test the monitor on another device and see if this issue happens again. Could be a hardware problem, not a software one.
Also, just to be sure, open up your PC (only if its out of warranty), take out your video card & blow any dust away you might have in the socket, and then put your video card back in again.
Hope this helps! :)
