hello. running xp pro. playing counter strike sometimes, the monitor would just go black and then nothing, no sou8nd, nothing. Just fans whirring. Monitor says no signal. restart and all is fine. This rarely happens, but when it does it is frustrating. Gfx card is radeon 9200, monitor is visitron l5ak5. Overheat problems? maybe? help please.

3rd party monitors are not allways good. sisoft told me my cpu was 183c. using my mb sensor it was 48c.

I think I may take my custom elsewhere.

thing is these happen so rarely, i dont think it is overheating. I leave my pc on for the whole day sometimes and there is no problem there. So i dont see how it can be overheating. I have also played cs for ages before with no problems.
