monitor randomly saying no signal and not turning back on till I reset my computer.

I recently purchased a new computer from ibuypower, and about 1 to 10 minutes after I turn on the computer, the monitor turns off, says no signal and it won't turn back on till I reset my computer. I have called ibuypower for technical support and have done what they have told me to try to fix this, mainly removing and plugging back in the video card, checking all of my connections between the monitor and the computer, and updating my drivers, all to no avail. I have absolutely no idea what could be causing this issue or how I could fix it. your help would be very much appreciated if you could tell me how to fix this.

Specs
Processor: AMD fx 8320 overclocked 10%
cooling: Dual radiator liquid cooling
RAM: 8g DDR3-1600 adata
Video card: AMD Radeon HD 7770
Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 R2.0 -- AMD 970
Power supply: 650 Watt -- NZXT HALE82N-SI / 80+ Bronze

  1. Its a bug in the amd drivers with some monitors, stop your monitor going into standby in power options and turn your monitor off manually when your away for a bit of time.

    under the power options I have my computer set to High performance, with turn off display settings to never and put computer to sleeps settings to never as well, is that what you mean?

  4. I fixed this problem by using MSI After Burner and in the settings selecting "Start with Windows" and "Force consistent voltage".

    :( I hate to say this but it looked like it was fixed for about 1 to 2 days, but it started doing the same thing again. I'm a little confused on why my system is having this issue. I'm not sure if my power supply is to small, or if the overclocking that ibuypower did isn't stable or something. I have tried running the MSI kombustor and it is saying my gpu load is at 99% when it's running, and i'm pretty sure that is bad? so sorry it took this long to get back, work is keeping me busy.

    So I was having the same problem when I installed my hd 7750 and I seem to have fixed it by downloading the latest version of the bios for the mother board and latest chipset drivers

  11. it could be that the bios isn't finding your HDD , whenever my computer says no signal randomly it wont start back up till I let the power cord out for about 30 min.

  12. Seen this many times. Take your monitor to another pc or laptop and if it does that again the replace the caps that went bad.
