My monitor is turning off every few minutes

Hello, my monitor turns off after a few minutes while i play: The Sims 2: Double Deluxe.
But, i don't know exactly why it's doing it. It is getting really frustrating.. I see that everyone else is saying theres a Video card? and to take it out and Dust it? But, I don't know if i should do that. Monitor-ViewSonic
Computer- Microsoft Windows XP

  1. Have you paid your power bill?

    Seriously, does this happen during any other time, or only when you play that game?

    My first step would be to re-plug all the power and video cables. Yes, sometimes the video card will overheat and blank out, but if you have never been inside a PC before you might damage it taking it apart. What kind of machine? Notebook or desktop?
