Monitor just shuts off for no reason
I recently installed a BIOS update for my Asus A7N8X-E motherboard about 2 days prior to this happening.
I will be working along just fine on my PC and the monitor will just turn off but my PC, mouse and keyboard are still on. I thought that this could be the monitor itself since its old so i swapped monitors with my brother and that did nothing. I took out my GeForce 6600GT video card and used my GeForce MX460 one and that didnt work either. Next was a system restore in windows XP which was futile. My last effort was taking out the CMOS battery for 15 minutes and thus resetting the BIOS but this **** is still happening.
