Windows 7: Black screens during gaming

Black screens during gaming

Firtly i will give you some info about my pc:

proccesor: intel core 2 quad CPU @2.40Ghz
Ram: 4GB ddr2
Graphic card: Nvidia Ge Force 8800 GT
Graphic card's drivers:
Windows 7 ultimate 64x
So my problem:

While i am playing a game (windowed mode mainly but happened of full mode as well) after some minutes (about..20) the monitor loses signal.Which means i have sound(not sure wether it just repeats the same part over and over again or the sound actually goes normal) but i get black screen and the monitor says "No signal'.
Weird part is that it doesn't happen to all games.So far it happened only on CoD:Black ops while football manager 2010 and pro evolution soccer 2010/2011 work without any problems.
If you need any more information let me know.
Thank you in advance

i changed monitor and i don't have a problem so far (workin for like 30min now...while it never worked for 15min).
My other monitor was a "tv/monitor" if you have a same kind of monitor i suggest you to try and trade it or something to check wether this is the problem or not.
Hope it will indeed work for me and you will find a solution as well
