Sounds like you PC as shut down, check for overheating. take side of computer and check all fans are clear of dust and working as they should. you can try it without side on

when the monitor loses signal green light on base unit stays lit you can hear a slight click from inside the base unit when this happens but the base unit still appears to be running
