Should I upgrade to Windows 10? 8 reasons why you should upgrade to Windows 10... and 2 why you…
I have a desktop PC with the following:
4.00 GB RAM ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E8200 @ 2.66GHz 64-bit Win7 Acer v193wv monitor
I have the latest drivers, I have the sides of the PC removed and I have just cleaned the whole thing a few days ago.
Usual temperatures on normal even when games are running.
I regularly use registry cleaner, namely Advanced System Care Pro 6 and CCCleaner, as well ESET NOD32 6 as well
Sometimes the monitor goes blank, I can still hear the sounds for around 5-7 seconds, then goes silent, the fans and power are up, and I have to reboot the PC because it reacts to nothing else. When on Skype, the other half can hear me until everything goes silent.
Sometimes after this happens, I have to restart the PC several times as for some reason the monitor does not connect to the PC, it displays an error message "cable not connected". However, when I connect the monitor to the default PC input after that error message, the display works but not if I plug it into the graphics card.
When it happens, I check the temperature of everything and it does not seem to be the problem.
Suggestions? Thank you a lot
Sounds like a faulty graphics card. Try and remove it and reseating it. It would be useful to know the exact model of the GPU rather than just the series, IE: 5700.
Before you go buying all sorts of new kit, try re-seating the Graphics Card

I am looking for a rather temporary solution as my PC is a fairly old IDE PC and I want to build a new one but wont be able to afford it sooner than half a year or so
