Monitor shuts down for no reason while in use

  Manon 15:18 16 Aug 2004

For a couple of weeks my monitor shuts down while I am working on Internet and cannot be revived by pressing key/spacebar. Pressing "restart" or "start" does not work either (tower still powered at this point). I have to switch off (and to succeed I have to press "start" for several seconds). I then have to unplug the "mains" lead to the tower and press "start" for at least 35 seconds and then release, plug "mains" lead back onto tower, and press start again in the normal way. As the system was not shut down properly scandisk comes into play; I can then go back to work. I have just changed the monitor (for unconnected reasons) and the problem is still there; the power box has also been changed without solving the problem. What does need looking at next? Help! (My system is 4-years old and was bought from Evesham who do not want to know as it is out of warranty - and although I am supposed to have "lifelong" helpline facility, it is obvious that they are not interested).

Try updating or re-installing your display adapters(graphic card drivers).
