Re: computer turns itself off alot
Is it going into stand by or actually shutting off? The only way to tell is when you turn it on does it jump straight into windows or does go through a list of things including how much memory there is?

There is little info on your problem but I think you mean the screen went black while downloading a film. Normally computer monitors turn themselves off (dormant) to save energy and the life of the monitor's screen if not used for 10 or 30 minutes, depending on the settings, but the download just keeps going. Mine is set to 10 minutes. All you have to do is disturb the Mouse and see if the monitor screen switches itself on. There is another power saving option, and that is the Computer itself. If the computer is not used for one hour, it too goes dormant, but can also be set to switch itself completely off after the download is completed. However, if a computer is left on for over an hour, it can switch itself off to save energy and the computer's own wear and tear. It all depends on the computer hardware and the settings. If it is hardware controlled, then it may or may not switch itself off but it still goes dormant. Or it can be set to whatever you wish it to do, stay on all the time, go dormant after a set time or switch off if there is no prolonged activity.
The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS
battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even
when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by
small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out
this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings,
including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if
you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.
If the pc plays on some of the games without going blank, I will suggest two things for to do. Adjust the screen resolution perhaps a little higher than what you have now. Finally, upgrade your RAM capacity. However, reverting to your former card can do the magic as I can sense that the new card may be running higher than what PCI socket on your mainboard can carry. It may be incompatible and only managing for now. Good luck
Try shining a flashlight on the screen, or without the flashlight, try to see if you can distinguish anything on the screen at all, if you do, the backlight is dead, or the monitor has an internal most likely unfixable problem.
It could be your monitor is fine. It simply goes to a cycle when its turned on and does not detect any signal coming from your CPU, it simply goes on standby mode (hence the darker image and orange/blinking light.) have you checked the computer (CPU) part?
I would turn the computer off at night, but try to restart the computer. the computer can get stuck in a suspended state of "hibernation" and due to a program error or a corrupt file it can get stalled this way ( just like when your computer freezes)
