This is not going to be fun, but lets start from the begining.
What are you doing when the screen shuts off? What kind of card do you have? Does it have both a DVI and VGA comnnector on the card? (VGA little blue one, DVI bigger white one) If so, which one are you using? Have you installed the latest drivers?

And please, try and type normal. It is really hard to understand you when you type like you have been.

What about my other questions?
And by anything, you mean the computer is sitting idle? or does it go off when you are on it?

Ok. Which do you have it plugged into? it could matter..
Also, are you using a flat pannel? or a regular monitor?

Are you able to get into normal Windows at all? If so, how long till it goes blank?

Hmm.. Ok. And just to clarify, it is the monitor that turns off, correct? Not the computer?

Ok, looking over the posts I noticed that you had another Topic started, Same problem, correct? If that is, you have already tried attaching another monitor to it, and it worked correct?
Have you tried attaching your monitor to another computer? If you have, what was the outcome?
