Hi there,

I was having some issues with the fan on my video card and I had it replaced. However when I boot up my pc now, the monitor goes to sleep within 10 mins. I was wondering if I need to change some kind of settings or if there is a larger issue at hand.

If it goes to sleep in windows its most probably a driver issue. Get the new drivers for your card. If it keeps happening check your connections. If its not your drivers sounds like the card might be nackered.

If all fails you could try and flash the VGA Bios but if you don't know what your doing it can 'brick' the card making it useless.
