Monitor turns off during Win7 Installation

Hello everyone.I have no idea whats wrong but this is what happens to me when i try to install Windows 7.

Press any key to boot from CD/DVD ...
Windows is loading files...
Starting Windows...

The setup loads and i start choosing my settings,but approximately 3 or 4 minutes after that my monitor goes into Power Saving Mode.This is happening all the time when i try to install.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7200, 2533 MHz
Motherboard: Asus P5LD2-X/GBL ,Socket 775
Memory: 2048 MB (DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM)
Video: Sapphire HD 3850 512MB GDDR3 PCI-E
HDD: Hitachi HDP725050GLA360 (500 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA-II)
DVD: TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S162A
Monitor: LG W2261VP-PF

What i tried so far is to upgrade my BIOS but that didn't help,so any suggestions would be great.Thanks in advance.

Welcome!

What type of connection do you have on your monitor? If you are not already doing so, try using the VGA port. Setup has been known to have issues with DVI monitors.

I have already done that and the report shows i pass everything except few things,but i doubt they are related.Anyway here is the reported ones that i don't pass.

15,3 GB free space available on C:

You need at least 16 GB of free space on your hard disk to install 32-bit Windows 7. You can make room by removing unwanted files from your hard disk, or contact your PC manufacturer or retailer to see if a hard disk with more capacity is available for your PC. You could also do a custom installation on another hard disk.

ADMtek AN983 based ethernet adapter ADMtek Incorporated
Action recommended
Before installing Windows 7, go to the device manufacturer's website to download the latest driver for this device. After installing Windows 7, install the saved driver.

Virtualization technology not supported
Your PC does not support hardware assisted virtualization technology.

Report looks good. I think Jonathans suggestion is a good start.

On my monitor I have both analog and digital.1 VGA and HDMI and DVI-D.I am using single link DVI-D cable to connect it to my video card.
I just got my new monitor yesterday.My previous one didnt have any DVI or HDMI outputs so i was forced to use the VGA.I hoped it was a monitor issue but seems not.Anyway I will try what u suggested and post results.Thanks for the fast replies.

Oh btw video card slots are 2x DVI-I if thats important.

All right this is very strange.I'm starting to think my problem has nothing to do with Windows 7 but here's what I did.
  1. Removed the DVI cable from my monitor and video card.
  2. Connected them with a VGA cable.Because my video card only has DVI-I slots i used vga to dvi converter at one end of the cable.Because my english is bad this thing looks like this -> http://www.chinapans.com/indon/397298_27397517_o.jpg
  3. Turned on PC and to my surprise the monitor didn't even turn on.I know the PC itself was working because i heard windows startup sound from my speakers.I also know that the cable was well plugged because if its not i get message saying to check signal cable.I tried to restart few times or to shut down the computer but that didn't work.
  4. Switched back to DVI and to my surprise again the monitor didn't turn on.I shut down the PC for 5 minutes and re-connected the cable to the other video card slot but that didnt help.Eventually I managed to make it work by using the source button on my monitor while at the same time pressing restart button on the pc.
  5. I did the same trick with the VGA cable and it worked! In addition to that I managed to enter Windows 7 setup and I waited for like 15 minutes to check if the monitor will go to power saving mode and after that i restarted my pc.
Because I am planning to format C: where my current Windows XP is located and replace it with Windows 7 and I really don't want to end up with some black screens after doing so,I would really like to hear what do you think about my problem.Any advise is good.
