I just built my tower this past Sunday, and I got everything off without a hitch. However, this morning, as I was going to check on a download, I turned on my monitor and it said "No DVI Signal." The computer was still running though, so I just assumed my graphics card stopped working overnight. I did a hard reboot, restarted my Steam DL, turned off the monitor, then went and took a shower. 15-20 minutes later, came back and turned on the monitor, only to find the same issue. No DVI Signal. Any thoughts as to what could be the problem?

I asked someone at work, and he told me that he thinks it could just be an issue with Win7, where when the screen turns off after 10-15 minutes, or whatever it's set at in the "Power Settings" section in the Control Panel. When you try to wake the screen up again there's no signal. Thus, a hard reboot is required.
