This is system power scheme, to save power when the machine doesn't detect any action on the keyboard of the mouse for a preset time frame.
go to control panel>power options and change the hard drive shunt down time, and the monitor shunt down time to what ever you like.

Do your PC support the above hardware requirements?
The most common input no support would be your graphic card is not up to the mark to play the PC games.
Is your graphics card drivers up to date to the latest?
Have you updated your DirectX to the latest version?
It can be the backlight inverter circuits went out, open it up and look for bad caps with bulging tops first, then look for 12~18vdc feeding the inverter circuits. See some examples of failed monitors here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Mine is a 190s Monitor and not a TV with any kind of remote unit controlling it. I had this issue about a year ago and it sorted it's self after a week or so left turned off. This makes me wonder if it has to do with heat and humidity affecting the micro switches located behind the push button controls on the removable screen surround.
before you start your game, you can try to modify your screen resolution and then start the game it will fit to the new screen size.
depending on your OS (winodws)
WIN XP close all windows and place your mouse over your desktop right click and select properties. a windows will pop out with the following tabs THEMES, DESKTOP, SCREEN SAVER SETTINGS.
click on settings and you will see a computer screen(s) and it will be a place to change the SCREEN RESOLUTION (800x600) (1024x768) etc try a diffrent one from the one you are using and click apply and then OK. run the game, if it persist just try a different size.
WIN VISTA click on desktop area and sellect PERSONALIZATION, click on Display settings and change the RESOLUTION.aplly and ok.
if my advice was of any help please rate me :)
The display may have been tasted on another pc from the store/company.. This message is activated after a while (or immediately) when connected to a new box. So far I have had this issue on a Philips 22" wide and HP.. both fixed after installing the little software that came with the displays. HP usually has a THEFT option within that installer. The philips one fixed itself upon restart.
the game will need to be set to the same screen resolution as your monitor or the best that suits, beccause of it being widescreen, so look in the graphic or video settings in the game, or change the resolution of your monitor to suit the games highest setting.
This is done by right clicking on your desktop, down to properties and then the settings tab in the next window and then move the slider at the screen resolution box.
