Welcome to Windows!

I'm not sure about the monitor turning off, but the Blue Screen sounds like another show up of Windows' unstableness (Is that even a word? lol). Screwy Windows is quite possibly the cause of the computer reseting itself too.

Could it be something wrong with your monitor?

GeForce 2?

I had a GeForce 2 before my New computer and I had the same problem - switching off not the monitor problem. There is a driver on nVidia.com with an update which worked perfectly after I installed it, or if you go to WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com then they'll point you to it (that was how I found it).

I believe that you monitor drivers are not set for the moniter you are using. I have had this problem in the past. The only way to fix it is to switch monitors to a more powerful one, or work through the dark, to fix the driver

Well, thats perhaps a better idea - but it would be eaiser to try updating the download first; then fiddling with drivers.
