I have been playing some pc games when I load them the moniter sometimes goes on standby for no reason, cant find a thread that covers this any ideas how to fix this?

Have you checked that the graphics card is firmly seated and that the monitor cable is also properly connected and none of the pins damaged?

This can often happen if the game is set to display at a resolution your monitor does not support.

i think the cables and graphic cards ok as it only happens when playing certain games,and the games are older and should be well within the capabilitys of my pc, which is a hp pavillion 1100mhz and im running win xp!

Does the games manufacturer have a website?

Often there is an FAQ section to deal with such queries and problems.
