Sounds like the screen has gone into standby mode. this normally happens when it looses sync with the PC. Chack cables in the back of the monitor and also on the back of the PC. Try Restarting the machine and see what happens
What was the machine doing at the time if you remember has you set the dieplay to a resolution higher than it can cope with.
Normally there is a auto tune function on the front of the screen try pressing that and see what happens.

Could be a couple of things, so try these steps:

1) Could be a faulty cord or power supply. If you're computer is under warrenty call your support desk and see if you can bring it to an authorized dealer/depot for diagnostic.

If this doesn't solve your problem then try:

2) right click anywhere on the desktop, select properties then select the Settings tab. Click the "Troubleshoot" button and follow the guide to see if you can correct the problem **Note** This is for Windows 2000, if you have another op system, the instructions may be slightly different.

3) Click Start, Control Panel and select the System icon. Select the hardware tab, then Device manager. If there is a problem with a device, you will notice either it having a Red X or a Yellow exclamation mark. Select any problem device, right click it, select properties and see it tells you there is a problem.

If you don't have a red or yellow mark. Find the listing for "Display Adaptors". Expand it, and select your Video Card (usually only one listed). Go to the Drivers section and make note of the Driver version and Manufacturer. Now follow this link to check to see if there is an updated driver.

Do the same for any device under "Monitor".

I'm no expert in computers, but I do consider myself an intermediate :thumbsup:
Good luck.

All the above is def the next thing to try other than that I would say it is a faulty monitor port on the mother board. Try installing a graphics card. Of if there is already one try using the standard port and see if that resolves the issue. I would say if it is doing this on regular basis it is likely to be either hardware or drivers. try doing the driver stuff first cos this does not soct you anything.

Here's a description of the error message: http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php#0xea

Most likely a video driver or the video card itself. Visit the manufacturer of the video card chipset and download their latest, certified driver (and install it). The most common cards are those based on nVidia ( http://www.nvidia.com ) or ATI ( http://www.ati.com )

Yeah as stated in a previous post ost likely the Hardware / driver problem. I would say if this is a inbuilt graphics card then just try updating the driver. But I think it might be goosed
