did the system restart or did the monitor just go off?

check the cable from the pc to monitor has not come loose and your graphics card is firmly in the slot.

the monitor just went off, and the orange light on the tower stayed on steady, i had to switch it off at the mains and leave it for about 10 minutes before it would start again, cant get to the graphics card as the unit is sealed and still under warranty thanks mary

could be the heat maybe or the psu playing up.if it happens again have it looked at under warranty.

control panel/power options/power schemes:

the options here allow your monitor/hard drive or whole computer to enter standby after a selected period of non use.

if all are set to never then it wont enter standby by itself unless you set it.

i have my monitor set to turn off after an hour(in case i fall asleep) and the rest to never.its up to you what you set it as.

doesnt sound like power options are causing it.
