    I have been having some problems with my PC lately and after doing some research it was suggested that i should run a chkdsk /r /f.

    I started the chkdsk after restarting my computer and it was running fine for about a min, until the monitor all of a sudden went into standby mode and i have not been able to get it to turn on again byy moving the mouse or pushing keys on the keyboard.

    Some of my problems of late have been related to my monitor going into standby either during Windows boot or even while in BIOS.

    Things that i have tried:

    1. clean uninstall,reinstall of GPU drivers. Tried latest versions as well and older versions.
    2. Clean install of Windows 7
    3. Reset BIOS to default
    4. Reset C MOS
    5. Switched monitor cables from HDMI to DVI
    6. Switched Monitors
    7. Switched GPU (This seemed to have fix it at first, but after about a week, the problem started again)
    8. Boot system in VGA mode (This eventually gets me back into desktop, but it will not do so on the first try)

    System specs:

    CPU i7860
    Motherboard: P55A-UD5
    GPU: gigabyte 5870
    RAM: Corsair 6Gbs
    PSU: Corsair tx 850
    HDD: WD caviar black

    The system seems to work fine when the monitor doesn't go into standby mode during system boot or like now, while trying to run a chkdsk.

    Any help in trying to fix this problem, or at least finding out what it is would be great.

    Typical causes would be the monitor or gpu. As you have swapped both already, I'd suspect the motherboard or power supply.
