I have a problem with my LCD monitor, whenever I play a game the monitor shuts down after varying amounts of time (Rome total war lasts longer than lord of the rings for example). No matter what game it is, it displays a “no signal error”. Then shortly after the sound goes (coming from stand alone speaker, not ones built into the monitor.) I have tried altering the graphics card drivers but to no avail. When we are in the XP it works fine, this is purely a game problem.

Specs;
Windows XP SP2
Nvidia FX 5200
AMD 64 3400 Processor
1gb Ram
Tiny 17” LCD Monitor

Any help much appreciated

What psu do you have? Could be a problem with how much it is actually supplying. I had the same problem, rather than find a cause tho i refitted my mahine, it works now but the problem part still eludes me.

I have a 300W psu.

I have just tried connecting my old monitor (standerd crt) and this is doing the same thing :(

Another update, i have just ran system restore and set the coputer to a earlier time, the probem is still there in games but not xp now. It also appears to be shutting down the keyboard and the mouse, and the speakers.
