Hi, my monitor turns off ever time i run programs, it does fine with basic ones though, the computer still seems to be on but there is nothing displayed on the monitor. i have to turn the computer off and leave it for about an hour before it will turn on

sounds like possible overheating
if you can open your case and blow out your CPU fan and heatsink
plus video card (if you have one) and PSU with canned air
that could help

Yes, it sounds like an overheating...
Make sure ALL of your parts are free from dust and re-apply thermal paste should help.
Also, knowing your FULL specs might help a bit... :)
