I purchased a new system a month or so ago. It has been running well for the most part. i7 processor, 8 gigs of ram, HD7850 etc.....

One problem. If I leave it on for a while when I come back my samsung monitor is flashing and when I move the mouse it usually comes back into windows 7 but it does not come back on. The monitor continues to flash.
I have to manually restart by holding the power button which I hate to do as I am afraid over time that will damage the computer.

I turned off sleep mode but that had no effect.

I have taken it back to the store and they cannot reproduce the problem.

Any thoughts?

I am pretty good with computers but not extremeley teksavvy.

cheers,

Use monitors own control system to disable sleep or set it to detect the main input rather than use automatic mode.

Hard-restarting the computer will not damage the computer "over time." If you do it during a software update you may mess something up, but otherwise you'll just lose your changes to any unsaved files you have open.

"...when I move the mouse it usually comes back into windows 7 but it does not come back on." - if the monitor does not come on how do your know it 'comes back into windows'?
