Re: Moniter keeps sutting downe

Sounds like video driver problem. If you can get to safe mode, you need to change the monitor driver to standard vga (go through control panel to display//advanced tab//adaptor tab//driver tab// then click uninstall. Windows should then start after a reboot and ask for the drivers for your card.

This seems to be a common issue where the refresh frequency or resolution gets changed/corrupted causing an unsupported one to be selected. Most modern video cards go to very high resolutions, but the monitors don't.

Video Card has a resolution setting higher than the monitor supports. The below works with XP, may work for Vista as well

Start the PC
Start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see a menu
Choose Safe Mode (make sure not to pick safe mode command prompt)
Once you see the desktop, right click on an empty area on the desktop, then choose properties

Find the resolution property in this program and bring it down. 1024 x 768 should be ok
