Default My monitor

Okay, if it's the wrong section can you kindly move it. ^__^
First, When I start playing game, im guessing my computer or something over heats and my monitor just instantly shuts off.
The power cable to the monitor and the plug are perfectly in.
When ever im playing game this happens.
Anyone know a fix for this?

Default Re: My monitor

what temps are you getting on your cpu and gpu?

If you do not have a monitoring program you can use realtemp or coretemp.

Cleaning out the inside of your case with a can of compressed air, especially your fans is a great place to start. Make sure your cables are not in the way. Ensure that the fans on your gpu and cpu are in fact running.

Full system specs?

My monitor shuts off then my computer restarts itself.

Was getting about 71.
Usual, I can't run my game with the temp thing open because it detects it as 3rd party program and terminates my game.
I was playing only for about 20 mins.

71C is getting hot for a 3000+ but not enough to shut down your machine.

run prime with the temp monitor on to see what it gets to under load.

You can check gpu temps by running 3dmark06 or 05.

Open your case and look for excess dust.

Default Re: My monitor

So you are at 50C on idle? That is hot. How hot did it get when the computer crashed?

Did you clean out the inside of your case?

May want to remount your heatsink. Check it and see how dusty it is and if the fan is actually running on it.
