Graphics Card

Hello,

My monitor has been putting itself to sleep while I play some of my games (Such as Age of Empires and Call of Duty). It does NOT put itself to sleep when I play World of Warcraft. Do the first two games stress the system more than WoW? My PSU is only 400w. Do I need to upgrade?

Thanks.

    Sorry if I left something else out, because I don't know a whole lot about the thing or what its supposed to be.

    Just the power setting in the control panel
    Control Panel > Hardware and Sounds > Power Options > Change Plan settings
    There should be a setting "turn off the display" try changing that.
  4. That has been changed to "Never". It still shuts itself down during games.
