    My screen goes black when I play games, it works fine for a while then the screen goes black, but I've still got control of windows for 2-3 secs, I can change songs by my keyboard etc, but then I lose all control of it. It also sounds like it's working more when this problem occurs. I've tried updating the drivers, formating the hard-drive and re-installing vista and removing dust from the computer. I've also tried to cut the monitors power for like 20sec and then reboot the monitor, bit it still won't find any connection, it searches for a connection as soon as the problem occurs but can't seem to find any. The computer store which built my computer have had a look at it and they couldn't get the same problem to occur while they were running a benchmark. The windows log says nothing at all about the problem. The only way to get the picture back is to manually reboot the computer by holding the power button. I've never noticed this problem while browsing the web or things that don't use a lot of graphics. Also, I had a similar problem some time ago, about a year, which disappeared when they store installed a new power supply.

    Help will be appreciated!
