hi, my pc is loosing signal with the monitor while playing games mostly but sometimes while im on the desktop usually when watching movies it cuts out. While the screen is blank the background noise will distort for a few seconds then play normally. I have taken my pc to a repair shop twice they have done many tests on it and have not been able to come up with anything. They played all the games fine even with my monitor and did not lose signal. They suggested change my power source ive tried that n its still happening also been threw several boards hasnt helped. If anyone could help me out that would b great im contemplating bashing my pc with a sledge hammer n stickin to console lol

Please provide information about your computer, this includes is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is provide the model name or series number (not serial) be sure to include the brand and output of the present PSU, providing these details will enable others to better assist you.

Apart from a bad PSU (power supply unit) overheating and a not enough memory can cause this but as a repair shop played games with no issues it may be down to overheating (they may have had the case open which helps with cooling)

Download Speedfan 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.
If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.
