hey all -

before I start, this isn't related to CQ/Incana, just looking for some help.

When playing pretty much any graphics intensive game my screen goes black and the monitor goes to sleep. The machine stays on (I can hear games playing in the background and I can ping the IP address) but the card is no longer responding.

I'm trying to figure out exactly what's causing this but my tech knowledge is very limited - can anyone offer any suggestions?

thanks in advance

I've had this in the past on an ATI graphics card (Acer Laptop) and it was related to heat. I ended up lowering the quality of everything to minimum and ensuring that the vents were kept clear, which helped but did not stop the problem. I've ended up switching to the lower power card (Intel chipset one) which has solved the problem.
