I had that problem with a PNY 9600gt somtimes in games or on desktop both monitors would just shutdown and sometimes my system would reboot.

I never could track down the problem and eventually just tossed the card.

More information would be nice, starting with your monitor, as well as your gpu. If it's a recent development, you can provide information such as: have you changed any display settings, power settings, etc?

Could be a failing power supply. Try swapping it for a diff one see if it fixes your problem.
