Huza08,

First off, uninstall your graphics driver completely and use windows for a few minutes (or hours), it'll be slow but if it shuts off then, then you know its not a graphics driver problem. If it does not, then you know that the drivers are the source. We do not have enough information at the moment, so just try that first and tell us how everything goes.

Good luck, Huza08!

Have you looked at your system log to see if it tells you anything about why the monitor is going off?

to get to logs go to - my computer - control panel - administrative tools - event viewer

You should see warnings and error messages in the system log. Double click on an entry to bring up details


try it in save mode aswell and try another moniter
