Windows 7: Monitor keeps going to sleep unexpectidly, and does not turn on.......

Can I just make a quick comment?

the only way I get it back on is to pull the cord from the back of my machine because the power button does not shut down the machine when this happens it is like frozen
Please don't do that. No matter how much your PC is frozen, you can force it to shut off by holding the power button down for 4-5 seconds. But repeatedly disconnecting the power supply from AC could cause undue wear and carries a slight risk of surges.

Exactly, I have the same suspicions, I just hope its not at the moment! I guess I can get a New one for like $75 bucks, but that is $75 I do not have at the moment...

Tried that but it will not shut down when I hold the button down. I wouldn't just pull the cord for nothing. would it be safer to hit the switch on my power supply?

My guess is hitting the power supply is the better option.

Wish cleaning the dust out of the machine would have fixed you up.

If you put it back without new thermal paste, your CPU is overheating and will evetually toast itself to death. This can happen REAL quick. Take the trip get some new paste and cleaner and get some on the heatsink ASAP. Cleaning all of the old paste first is VERY important.

I guess Its not doing to bad at the moment on Heat because I have my Cool Operator JR Fan blasting on it from the side with the cover off, check out my Speccy screen-shot below, you can also put Speccy in your PortableApps, apps folder! but I am defiantly going to get some new Thermal Paste on Friday! I should put my better Graffix card back in sense I know the GPU wasn't the issue, ill wait until friday...........
