Windows 7: Screen goes blank

Screen goes blank

Hope someone can help with this one please.

Every time I boot-up after about 5/10 minutes my screen goes blank and the monitor just reverts to standby. I have to reboot and then all is fine for the rest of the day?

I have updated all my drivers but cannot think of what is wrong.

Any help appreciated, thank you

Hi Graham,

sorry, should have explained better. are you running your onboard graphic or a seperate GPU? from your comments i would suggest a GPU?

can you tell me what GPU you have?

Can you run a system restore and update us on your progress?

Ah bugger, the issue surfaced again this morning When it happened, there is a noise like a noisy fan? Hope that makes sense?
