Lately, my computer monitor will turn off suddenly in a game, or even just during browsing. It will just suddenly go black and change to power saving mode. When i try turning it off and on, it will just go back to power saving mode.

I have had this computer for 3-4 years and have had a multitude of other minor problems. I got a new monitor about 3 months ago but the problem only started 2 weeks ago.

Download Speedfan (The download link is in the first line of the second paragraph), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.

Here it is. It's pretty much the same now. I haven't tried it while running stuff yet.

Ok well maybe the LCD is overheating?

Well for the PC, do you have any case fans installed?

I also just got a problem with deleting an account. Whenever I try, it brings up windows debugger and tells me there is a problem. I tried on another account and it worked fine. I doubt these problems are related but i wanted to state it.

I think thats the fan that was producing the RPM's of 1300. That is not enough for you to at least bring the temps down a little more.

What is your CPU?

I tried changing the fan speed in SpeedFan from 47% to 100% but nothing happened.

I have no idea. Probably not since I have never used a warranty and don't buy any extra ones. I think it had a 30 day warranty and that was it. I'm wondering if it is a processor issue because if i try to hit the power button once, it doesn't hibernate like I have it set.
