    hai,

    i am facing a unique problem. I recently installed windows 7 ultimate 64 bit on my pc. the pc runs normally for about 30 to 45 mins. but later monitor turns off with a "no signal" indication. but when i check, the processor is still running. then to get the signal back again, i must restart my system. then after boot up, i get the message saying windows was not shut down properly. i am not able to understand what is creating the problem. is the problem with hardware. or with windows 7. i never faced such kind of problem before when i was using windows xp SP3. somebody please help me.

    XP has little to do with Windows 7. They are different operating systems.

    Have you checked the power options for when the monitor turns off?

    Do you have a screensaver selected and does it work?

    Does your monitor itself have any settings for idle inactivity?

    thank you for the reply.

    i am not using any screen saver. i not even changed any settings either in control panel or in the monitor. i am using AOC monitor. according to my knowledge i have not used any settings to keep monitor into idle state. can OS create a problem in this issue. or any hardware problem..? please reply

    Settings sometimes change for reasons unknown. Did you check the Power Options?

    check 'choose when to turn off monitor' in power options in control panel. Windows 7 defaults to turn off monitor and put PC to sleep after approx 10mins for the monitor and 30 mins to sleep, set these to something more appropriate for your needs.
