Monitor keeps going in to stand by.....

By scotty9902 ·
Right i know a fair bit about computers but im not Bill Gates so make the answers reasonably simple.

Right i have:
AMD Athlon 2800
512mb DDR ram

and this graphics card

ATI Radeon 128mb Xpress 200 series(with is on the motheroard i assume as i've looked inside and cant find anything.)

the problem im having is that my montior keep putting it self in stand by. i turn the monitor fully off then turn it back on it will work for 2-3 seconds but that is all.

i play World Of Warcraft and it only really happens when i Alt-Tab between programs when it is open or when the computer has been on for a long time and i open WOW.

my idea is that i maybe over heating. but im not to sure. any idea of how i can get round this or is a new graphics card on the cards?

Have you tested the Monitor on a different computer?

It is quite possible that the Monitor is faulty and needs repair or replacement. When Monitors go off this is the first thing to look for and will be the problem in 99% of the cases involved.

If that isn't the problem you need to provide more information as to OS etc before anyone can answer your question.
