Monitor not working right

Hello. Bought new monitor recently, but here is the problem - after about minute it goes like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Wsqp38jxyE . After that happens I need to turn monitor off and agian back on to make it work again or unplug DVI cabel from pc and plug it back. Running it on GTX260. Can someone tell me why is that? ( Monitor resolution 2560x1440 if needed )

  1. Your graphics card can handle that resolution right....? have you checked?
  2. Is this one of the Catleaps? Or the Yamakasi?
  3. After watching the clip, I think it may be a video card issue.

    To check (although a PITA):

    1. Try switching monitors. If the same thing happens, I think it's a video card issue.
    2. Try changing/replacing cables.
    3. Have you installed the driver for your monitor?
    4. Try re-installing drivers for video card. Remember to use Driversweeper to make sure of clean install.

    Foolproof method to uninstall drivers:

    1. Go to "control panel".
    2. Go to "device manager" under "hardware and sound".
    3. Under "display adapters", right click your VGA and select "uninstall".
    4. Reboot into safe mode (F5 on BIOS post).
    5. Run driversweeper and select NVIDIA components (not NVIDIA chipset component).
    6. Reboot normally.
    7. Re-install VGA drivers.

    Good luck.
  4. Firstly I must thank everyone for fast answers.
