Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My computer monitor keeps shutting off randomly for no reason. It isn't the sleep function, I've already checked that and it happens when you are in the middle of using the system. I am running XP


Answers :

The monitor shuts off or the video card shuts off?

If it's the video card it's probably a heat or driver issue.

If it's the monitor it's probably a heat or ROM issue.
