    [URGENT] Monitor randomly keeps turning off...


    Hey there, when I'm watching YouTube videos or something my monitor would randomly switch off and would display the little DVI text on the right side of the corner. My computer would be running still, but my video would have stopped and everything. There's no way to turn it back on, other than to switch my computer off and back on again to get the monitor to work again.

    I have the EIZO fg2421 120hz monitor.

    Have you tried a different cable? This will at least remove that problem from the picture.

    Make sure all drivers are up to date and that there are no power management options enabled turning off the display or something.

    If you have a NVIDIA GPU it could be a driver issue. Elsewhere, NVIDIA users have reported issues like what you describe. The fix was to go back to a 368.xx series driver.

    I currently have a AMD Radeon driver.
