For a few weeks now I've been having a problem which seems to be getting worse, after a few minutes of playing any game my monitor will go black and the LED will go orange, so there is still power but no signal. The PC still sounds like its working as usual and the keyboard and mouse stop responding. I always have to turn the PC off via the power button and restart. I formatted my PC and the problem is still there so as far as I can tell it must be hardware related. I've got the latest drivers/directX etc.
The thing that I don't get is why the PC had been working fine on all these games for months and randomly started to do this. I can post the dxdiag thing if it will help.

Anyone have any ideas?
