    Thanks for reporting back. Glad it's now sorted - it's always worth giving your PC a spring clean - dust build up can be a real problem and connections can work loose or deteriorate over time.

    Agreed.

    The other important thing I've learnt here is to keep a backup image. It's "using a computer 101" but I guess sometimes some of us think we're above the inevitable, I know I did :P

Monitor turns off
This happened sometimes in Windows 8.1 and still happens in Windows 10. I went into settings and changed when to turn off monitor to never and put this computer to sleep to never so why does the monitor turn off after no activity anyway?
