First of all, i want to say tat my monitor is working perfectly in desktop and other windows application.The problem come only when i play computer games;it usually happened after 1/2 -2 hour of gameplay which my monitor will stop responding and shutdown after a displaying a no signal message.Sometime it will display out of range and also shut down.

being an extreme gamer, it is very frustrating to have such a problem. For example, i will have to restart my gameplay and wasted 2 hours of time playing for nothing, So i really hope tat someone can provide me with an acceptable answer/solutions. i have also broswed almost ten other forums without getting the right answer.

i previosuly used 1024x768 res. with 60 Hz and now i used 800x600 res with 60 Hz and the problem still didnt go away. i have also tried to overide the refresh rate to 60 at the video adapter option , updating my ATI driver to the latest catalyst driver,with no results.

according to the display monitor setting, it give the option of refresh rate 56-85Hz;

If i still cant solve my problem, i really dunno where i can go ; i have considered buying a new monitor but afraid the problem didnt lies with my monitor.
