My monitor has never caused me real problems over the past 4 years I've had it. But lately it has been breaking down. It mainly happens when I try to play Counter-Strike. I can play the game for about 15 minutes but eventually the monitor just dies. It shuts off as if I hit shut down in Windows. The computer light is still on so I assume it's on. Does anyone know what the problem is? Is it time for a new monitor? Is it the video card? Cuz I really don't know, but I have a feeling it's the former rather than the latter. My system specs are:

Biostar M7MIA mobo
1.2 GHz Athlon
256MB DDR RAM
Asus GeForce 2 GTS 32MB DDR
7200rpm 40GB Maxtor hd

Also it may be some messed up power saving feature in windows gone haywire...
