    My monitor turns to standby mode and wont come out of it when i play Colin Mcrae Dirt at 1024x768 and above. Below this resolution my monitor seems to be ok. I am going to test it out with another game (Battlefield 2142).

    Anyway I used ada32 to create a report on my machine and as you can see from the attached report it says i have no power connected to the Graphics Card. Which is not true as i have checked and there is a power cable plugged into it.

    Any Ideas?

    My Specs
    Dell Dimension 8400
    3.2GHz P4 CPU
    2048MB RAM
    550W PSU
    ATI RADEON X1950 Pro
    2 internal HDs + 1 external
    1 DVDRW + 1 DVD-ROM
    1 Floppy Drive
    Dell M991 CRT Monitor
