My monitor switches to power saving mode when I play games. Not only does it go into power saving mode and I can't get it back without restarting my computer, but all the sound cuts out too. The light on my case says it's still accessing my hard-drive, but it just switches off. I've ready about it online, and it could be any number of problems. I've heard it could be my GPU overheating/dying, or my PSU. Nothing on my computer is over-clocked, and I've only had this problem show up the last few days. I don't have this problem when I'm not playing games.

Try taking out your video card and start a game. If that works, then either your video card or PSU pooped itself. I'm going to guess it's a PSU problem, although I'm not sure why it would go into power saving mode. Have you tried messing around with the power options inside windows (changing it from balanced to max performance)?

Edit: Oh crap, you said monitor. Derp. Try it anyway with onboard graphics.

Most likely vid card or PSU, with my money on the vid card being the problem. sounds similar to a problem I had with a GTX460 right before it tried to burn my house down. do what sushi says and use a different video card or onboard if you have to, see if you have the same problem.

It doesn't sound like power saving mode. It sounds like a GPU crash. Post your Event Viewer System Logs.  Don't be like the guy in this thread and not post them: http://ofprclan.com/forum/index.php?topic=15832.0

The display errors at  5:53pm, and 6:33pm were of my own doing. I was using a GPU stress test program.

Are you overclocking? That includes using aggressive settings in the BIOS. Also that CDROM Driver error is literally over 90% of about 50,000 entries, so much of the logs are lost for good data. Have you tried reinstalling the driver or installing a driver at all for it?

I haven't done any overclocking. I believe I run my computer on the high performance setting that I set in my BIOS. That's the only thing I remember changing in my BIOS.

That's overclocking. If this is an unstable peak power issue this could aggravate it. Try to set it to normal/default and see what happens. There were a couple of parity failures which could indicate this problem but in my experience it could just be anomalous.

It happened again today at 5:53pm while I was playing War Thunder. I went and looked through the event viewer at the logs and didn't see anything at that time.

Have you tried non-overclocking in the BIOS yet to see if stability returns? The GPU driver obviously isn't crashing or at least it isn't the first thing going down in the cascade.

Could still be a voltage/amperage problem or even a heating problem.

One of these days I might ask to remotely log in.

"Have you tried non-overclocking in the BIOS yet to see if stability returns?" I turned it to normal/balanced, and turned off this thing called GPU boost on my motherboard. I couldn't find any good information on what that does. I've had it on since I built my computer two years ago.

"Could still be a voltage/amperage problem or even a heating problem." I turned all my fans to turbo so I'll see how it deals tonight.

"One of these days I might ask to remotely log in." Anytime you'd like. Possibly before I take my computer into the local computer store.

Yeah its hard to track down this problem when there's no information about the cause being logged or obvious. This is when you have to start playing detective. Checking power, temps and such both during idle and under load but also checking what applications are running and what may be interfering, run memory tests to see if maybe bad RAM may be the cause and so-on.

So I'm almost 100% sure it's because of overheating with the GPU because today I found that one of the two fans isn't running. When I took the card out and spun the two fans with my fingers the one fan that wasn't spinning was very stiff. How hard will it be to replace the fan? How big would the fans be (I can't find the info online.)?

Also, before you say it, yes I am dumb for not checking this before. lol
