My monitor just keeps turning off. I don't know about the operating system because when the monitor shuts off, I can still see the lights are on in my CPU. plus, I can still hear the cpu fan working. but after a while the monitor turns on but windows restarts. It started about 3 months ago but then recently it happens very often. I suspect it to be a power supply problem but Im not sure. Does anyone else experience this problem? Does anyone know how to fix this?

If your computer has a video card then start by cleaning and reseating it. Download Everest Home Edition: Everest.

Run the program and select "report". Click "next" then select "hardware related pages" and have it in text format. Report your system summary and the information listed under "sensor".

Next will be to test your RAM. Here is a guide to using Memtest: Keith's Memtest Guide. You can download Memtest here: Memtest. Let it run overnight and report your results along with the Everest information.

sorry. never got the chance to test the RAM or anything. Its happening very often and within minutes from startup. additional info, after the monitor shuts off and I restart it, a message appears before I got to log in in windows.

"Overclocking Failed! Please enter Setup to re-configure your system..."

I didn't change any settings in my BIOS and I never overclocked. what could be the problem.
