While playing Warcraft 3 and I am in the middle of a game my monitor randomly turns off and starts a loud annoying buzzing sound. I try to turn it back on but it reacts as if it were in sleep mode. The computer is still on while this happens and the only way i can fix this is to reboot my computer. i was wondering if there are solutions to stop this from happening as i cannot play games when this happens halfway through the game. Thanks.

LCD or CRT? Video Card?

Do you have another monitor you could test with? Another computer (even a laptop)? That would help determine if the issue is with your monitor or your graphics card. I suspect that the issue is either with a dying monitor, or a dying video card, either way i doubt a simple driver update will resolve your issue, and you will need new hardware.

if your computer has onboard graphics as well as an addin card, you could try plugging the monitor into the onboard graphics to see if the issue persists, too.

I assume then that it is my monitor as my computer is custom built with the highest graphics and video card. Would it be useful to turn my graphics down on the game settings?
