PC gets stuck in a sound loop, monitor goes black.

When playing games, once in a great while my monitor will go black. It will then alternate flashing DIGITAL/ANALOG (the same it does when you first boot the computer). Sometimes theres no sound but sometimes the sound is stuck in a loop from the game i was playing. The only way to recover is reboot. Theres nothing being posted in the event log to indicate theres a problem

I have tried backing down drivers then updating them, and making sure the GPU is not overheating and I am really unable to recreate the problem as its pretty sporadic. I am toying with the idea of returning the Video Card as im sure thats the problem - just not sure if theres anything I am overlooking or not.

It ended up being the video card. I got it replaced and the new one is fine.

How do I keep my computer from going into powersave mode and crashing when I play games?


The computer is changing the screen resolution to a mode unsupported by the monitor. The "power saving" message is being generated by the monitor/tv not the computer. Check device manager and ensure that under displays, that you do not have "standard vga" I shall try and make a screenshot of what you need to look for or a youtube link.

When I play some games on my syncmaster 215tw, the screen goes black after 5 minutes. I have to reboot everytime to get the screen back on. The blue light flashes but i cant do nothing until i reboot....


that means your VGA is not big enough to run the game.This problem is not from the monitor but your system.I suggest an upgrade in your system to enhance better performance.

My screen goes black after a few seconds


Sounds like a bad solder joint on the printed circuit board. Once it heats up then it no longer makes good contact and the monitor goes black until it cools down and makes contact again. You could resolder it if you knew where it was but monitors are dangerous to go playing around with as they can hold very high charges of electricity in their capacitors that are very dangerous. It's a throw away world. Go buy a new one.

Mag Innovision 765S Screen Flashes on and off.


It sounds like it is trying to re-synchronize it self and not going back the the default setting. Compare the resolution of the game to your monitor capabilities.

My moniters screwed


Sometimes this is due to graphics cards, but most of the time it is due to drivers. If it does not happen when you are using your PC for other things the problem probably just lies with the graphic card, driver, and this particular game or any game similar. Drivers are the most notorious! Check your requirements on the game for graphics cards recommendations! Let me know!

Monitor trouble


It means your system display card settings are too high for your monitor. Try to change the refresh rate of your monitor
