Well it isn't a huge thing, but it has become very annoying. I will be watching a movie, playing or game, or just doing nothing and my monitor will suddenly turn black. The only way I have been able to correct it is by turning the monitor on and off. The monitor is still on and I think data is still being sent cause I can still here the sound and I can still do stuff (even though I can see what I am doing lol). Sometime it was happen at all, sometimes every few hours, and sometimes every half hour. It's completely random. My power settings is on complete performance so sleep has been turned off and all that other stuff. I don't know what to do. Google didn't cut it this time so I am going to you.
Things I have tried were disk check hardware check re-installing directx, nvidia, and most drivers I believed relevant to the problem.
Here are my specs
-AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ 4.9
-3.00 GB 5.0
Graphics Windows Aero
-NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS 3.7
-1535 MB Total available graphics memory 4.6
Primary hard disk
-38GB Free (139GB Total) 5.6
The graphics card is fairly new (less then 5-6 months), and the monitor is a 19" Polaroid LCD HDTV wide screen monitor.
