Screen turns itself off!

  morgueman 09:02 07 Aug 2008

Hello all, having real problems with this! Had my pc upgraded, new cpu - amd phenom x3, new motherboard, new graphics card, geforce 8800gt, new memory, 2mb, new hard drive, 250 and windows xp with service pack 3
What happens is that the monitor turns itself off after awhile, either playing games like COD4 or if just working on the pc, but the pc itself is still on, can see the lights on and hear the fans going!
Did notice last night after it happened i ran a fan test program and it showed two temps., the first was fine but the second temp., dont know excately what the temp. belongs to, went up to 50c and a flame icon appeared for about 2 seconds, then the temp. started to go down after that!
Would a faulty monitor cause this or something else?
Thanks for any help anyone can give me with this.

Download HWMonitor click here and read the temps off it.

We need to know which item is at what temp.

Have you tried the monitor in a different PC and checked the cables?
Does the monitor display anything at all when it "switches off"?
What is the status of the power light on the monitor when it does this?
