Specs: Windows 7, 8gb
my monitor would work for 5 minutes then I would see message 'no signal' and monitor would go black. I would reboot and monitor would work for 2 minutes. video card was HOT. I used can of compressed air to clean inside but saw no improvements. Then I took the whole system to computer repair shop with very powerful air compressor for blowing. More dust bunnies were blown out. Then monitor worked perfect!
