PC restarts after turning on monitor

Hi guys, I've been having this problem ever since I installed win7. I was previously and XP user and had no probs with it until I installed win7.

Basically when I turn my monitor off and turn it on again, my PC restarts itself. It doesn't matter how long I turn the monitor off for - As long as I hit the off button on my monitor while my PC is still running, the moment I turn on the monitor, the PC makes a beep and restarts.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Download and install the appropriate driver, either x86 or x64 for Vista.

If that doesn't help, update the video card driver.

Crashing After Turning off Monitor
Using Win 7 Pro 64bit. Every time I turn off the monitor I either see a blank screen, or the taskbar is gone or the PC is in terminal sleep (can't be awakened). I usually have to reboot. If I leave the monitor on, these things don't happen. Any hints as to why this might occur? Thanks. PRS

Monitor not turning on after going to sleep?
I have a HP desk top with an older hp 19" monitor. Some mornings when I "wake" the computer up the monitor does not come on. I have to unplug it from the power and plug it back in. Anyone know how to fix this other than keeping it on all the time? Thanks
