    Okay I see there's similar topics floating the forums. But thats the thing they're 'similar' in a sense of Black Screen, but thats it.

    Issue is after being idle a while my VDU display goes off/turns black. Thats not to say the monitor turns off, or even power saving - non of that kicks in, green power light no display:(
    Daft and frustrating thing is when I turn the monitor off and turn it back on for that breif 3sec gap I see my PC display. And both that and the sound and keyboard (can Alt-Tab and CTRL+ALT+DEL just fine)work hell every single thing on my PC is working fine, just no display!

    Please help!!!

    I'm running Win 7 Ultimate with a 4GB (I think though maybe remembering that wrong) GeoForce 750 Ti
    My Avast Antivirus, my Windows system, and GeoForce Experience are all fully up to date

    If it is a desktop, try another monitor. That is the sign of a dying monitor - the black screens get closer and closer together. I have a 19" Samsung that did that. It is either a resistor or a capacitor that needs replacing but shops don't repair monitors because it isn't cost effective.
