    Windows 10 64 Bit

    Screen Turns Black after 10-15 Minutes


    Hi, i have freshly formatted my computer, installed all the updates and drivers, i have also RMA'd my video card (which i thoroughly tested and found it works fine on other computers.) but i cant figure out why my screen goes black but the computer keeps running. I can hear my music still playing and i run a dual monitor setup but when my screen goes black both monitors keep bouncing around the "Analog / Digital" box and thats all i can see, i have tested the monitors on other computers and they work fine as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Check your Power Settings, go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options, and check "Change Plan Settings" - Where it says "Turn off the Display" make sure that it is set to "never".

    Even if you have Music playing, if you have the screen assigned to turn off after a period of time, it will. I usually use a screensaver instead.

    I have done all this turned all power saving options off completely, no hibernate/sleep mode enabled, no screensaver or anything.

    Hi! Can you post a screenshot of all your power settings? Details.

    Do you have the extra power cable plugged into the graphics card?
