Does this happen as soon as you watch a movie? or is it just going to sleep while you leave the system idle? | Report abuse dextermat January 23, 2012 7:55:09 PM Hi, Im not 100% sure it's a monitor problem: 1- check in your monitor menu if it's set to auto detect settings, got that kind of problem from an IINC monitor. 2- does your video card have 2 port, you can try the other one 3-check for virus/spyware with malwarebytes How do you know it's a monitor issue: can you turn it back on or you have to power on you computer once you tried to start skype ? Did you test an other monitor ? | Report abuse Related ressources Computer turns off while playing games - Forum Grafics and processer question - Forum Acer aspire 5334 laptop screen keeps turning off . - Forum Custom built computer keeps turning on and off !!!! - Forum BRAND NEW PC keeps turning off - Forum Ask the community Publish lindy219 January 23, 2012 10:18:42 PM The monitor goes off with Skype or watching a movie in about 15 minutes.
