Default Black out

i have a computer with a pentium 4 nividia geforce 7800 and i think a asus motherboard that sometimes the screen will just go black. could this be from the fact it only has a 250 w psu?

does your entire computer shutoff? does the monitor shut off? does it turn black and you have to reset your computer to fix?
