Windows 7: "no signal detected" problem with monitor

"no signal detected" problem with monitor


so i got a problem with my computer and i hope one of u guys may be able to help me.
what basicly happens is this: While playing games (mostly TESO (an MMORPG)), my screen freezes, goes completely black, i got an error sign that says: 'no signal detected' and screen goes black again.

i can't do anything, yet i'm still able to hear the sound of what ever i was doing.

my log book gives me this error:

Name: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-EventTracing/Admin
Source: Kernel-EventTracing
ID: 3
level: error

on advice of a friend i have tried the directX diagnostic tool and running sfc/scannow in command prompt.
both showed nothing out of the ordinairy.

so if anyone could help me, or give me any advice that would be appreciated.

Keep it simple though, my knowledge of the in and outs of a computer is NOT very high

Just start troubleshooting.

Start with your video card then the monitor.

Once you`ve ruled out one of them is good or bad, post back your results.

You have a 750 Ti, how old is it ? Test it on another PC, same goes for the monitor, how old is it ? your cable should be fine, but check it too.

Also download the atest video drivers from nVidia again and do a custom/clean install. And make sure you have the latest version of DirectX installed.
