Try messing with the resolution settings in Display Properties on the desktop.. if your desktop doesn't match the resolution you use in the game it tends to have issues when Alt tabbing...

Moniter shuts down while playing wow while not in windows mode


Go to your computer's Control Panel, Power properties, and change the power scheme to Always On, where hard disk shutdown, monitor turn off and system suspend are all set to "never". This should help.

When I switch on warcraft(or other games), the monitor shuts down but power light is on.


This is normal. BUT it should only do this while launching, once it hits the main menu clearly. It should be fine.

2. If you alt tab while the process is running, you may see the resolution change. But if you close it properly than it should not change except for those reasons/times.

Contact me if none of those do work,

You have to repair your game.

1. Go to the Repair Tool in World of Warcraft folder > repair.exe

2. Right Click the World of Warcraft Shortcut > Properties

3. Click Find Target button in the bottom left of the Shortcut tab. This will display the World of Warcraft folder.

5. Double Click on Repair program and choose the Reset and Check files option.

6. This will create a backup of your WTF, WDB and Interface folders before resetting them and then begin scanning your installation.

Samsung SyncMaster 17" LCD Blacks out


If you have a second monitor, you could use your computer until the monitor goes black... then plug in a replacement monitor. My guess is that one will display black too...

My gut feeling is that your VGA card is on the fritz... I'm not convinced it's your monitor. Do you have a replacement VGA card you can try? I'll bet that'll take care of the problem.

Monitor screen is off center


Adjust it on your monitor they are not all quitte the same but there must be a button there.Use adjust horizontal if you can find it.
First find your Monitor manual.Then find where it mention something about HorizSync and VertRefresh.
Next open the terminal:
Code:
sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Go to the Section "Monitor"
and add the correct HorizSync and HorizSync

CAUTION: Make sure it's correct it can damage your monitor if you use incorrect numbers!
save and exit. Reboot.

Eg. Mine looks like this:
Code:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "DELL P992"
HorizSync 30.0 - 107.0
VertRefresh 48.0 - 170.0
Option "DPMS"
EndSection

Another way is to backup your /etc/X11/xorg.conf

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!
