Default Screen blackouts

Yesterday evening I got my new LCD monitor in the door, unpacked and plugged it in.

Everyone seems to go smooth, but one thing :

When playing a game, and there is a lot of animations on the screen going on, the monitor goes black for 2-3 seconds. This happens unlimited number of times with no certain timespace.

It even turns black when the games are minimized and I just browse in windows.

I've updated all drivers, installed all kinds of Direct X, changed resolutions and HZ in both games and windows, and controlled all cables is plugged in correctly.

The monitor works perfectly well on other computers than mine and I never had any problems like this on the old monitor.

Any help would be much appreciated ! Thanks in advance.

Umm its probaly the video drivers in your computer.Try to find updates for your video card and install them and then re-install the monitor drivers.
