When i launch some games (only a few) the monitor goes totally black (actually, goes off) and the butttons lights in front start to blink.
The game still runs, i can hear the sounds, etc.
Why does this happens?
Is my monitor too old?
Can i fix it?
btw, video card is a Gforce 7600
Thanks for your help

It could be that the game you are playing is set at a higher resolution than what your monitor supports.

As aprox says, this usually happens when your monitor gets a signal outside the range it can handle.

For example if I set my CRT to 1600x1200 ad 85hz it goes off since it supports only 72hz at that resolution.

Likewise if I set my LCD to anything over 60hz for 1600x1200 (its native resolution) It tells me it can't display the picture.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
