    Hi

    Strange one that ive never come across before, my dads monitor shuts off then shortly after the whole system shuts down and turns off

    havnt had a go at the system yet as he jus phoned me, i was thinking power managment settings? if i can get to them in time, changing the VGA cable, or possibly a knackered video card?

    anything else i should look out for?

    What version of Windows?

    It does look like power management may be the issue but the 'sleep' option in Vista makes it look like the PC is completly off! :biggrin
