Default Monitor or Desktop problems

I'm playing counter-strike on 1.6 with a 9600gt which im sure can handle the game at a good 100fps. But for some reason when i play for a good hour or so, my monitor goes BLACK for no reason and the green light goes orange(monitor goes standby) my computer is working perfectly.I have to restart my computer everytime this happens. Whats wrong?

im sure i had a prob like that before but it wasnt to do with my graphics card..
have u put in a new processor lately or have u maybe hit it while puttin something in cos when it was happenin to me it was because my processor fan wasnt attached correctly and so my processor was overheating..

Ok i just experienced it again im gonna list what happens.
1.Monitor goes standby
2.My sound repeats itself over and over the RED LIGHT on my desktop by the power button is still blinking
3.After around 10 seconds the sound switches to a DEEDEEDEEDEE sound and the red light stops blinking, my computer is still on thought because my blue fan light is still on

What could be wrong?
Programs i have on Ventrilo, Counter-Strike, AIM. It cant be a virus because i only got the computer last night and only installed a couple of games and ventrilo/AIM.

First thing download MemTest 2.01 and run it overnight.

Also have you done any overclocking at all?

Download the .iso here and burn it to CD. Then restart your computer with the CD in the drive and memtest should start on it's own.

If it doesn't just change the boot sequence in BIOS so that your CD/DVD drive boots first. Let the program run for at least 8 hours. If you see any number under FAIL other than 0 then you have bad memory.
