Monitor turns off while gaming!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My monitor randomly shuts down when playing modern warfare 3 and says "no dvi signal". The computer still remains on and I have to force it to shut down. This used to also happen with cod2 but i just deleted it. All other games like crysis and prototype work on the computer no problem. I also noticed it takes longer for the monitor to turn off when playing in safe mode then on maxed settings. The monitor also makes a buzzing nsound on some of the games especially cod2. I have checked the tempetures and everything seems to be working well. Any help is appreciated!!

My Specs:
CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme 1320LQ Desktop PC
Intel Core i7 2600K(3.40GHz)
8GB DDR3
2TB HDD Capacity
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 1.2GB
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Power Supply 950W
Motherboard: Intel Z68

It sounds like it might be a problem with the monitor.
  • Does this happen consistently?
  • Does it happen with other monitors?
  • Have you tried plugging in the monitor to the other DVI port?
  • Have you tried using the onboard video and seeing if it happens with that?
