have we not seen this one before, its probably the power setting, set to switch of monitor after 15mins of no activity and go into standby after 20 mins..this is normal, saves power/money and gives your hardware a longer lifespan.

if you want to waste money and power just change the power settings to never/never/never/never...

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

if you mean that every thing stops responding after 1 minute after start, then you have a hardware issue or a driver issue.
main thoughts would overheating of the CPU, reseat the cooler on the cpu, maybe some new thermal paste..
check your memory isnt faulty

How would you know if the keyboard stopped responding when the monitor is off?

When you installed the Windows 7, what OS was there before? Was this an Upgrade install, or a clean install (formatted)? Did you upgrade all of your drivers to Windows 7 drivers (motherboard, video card, NIC, etc.)?

Reply to Response Number 3

After moniter switching off, i tried pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del keys on keyboard & even the caps lock and num lock. The num lock & caps lock "lights" on the keyboard do not glow.

Before installing Windows 7, I had Windows Xp Service Pack 2. I dint upgrade, jus installed a clean copy of Windows 7. I had a motherboard driver Cd provided by the manufacturer. Just installed the drivers from that CD.

Go into safe mode with networking if you can and go to the manufacturer's website and look for the newest windows 7 drivers for your system. You usually can use Vista drivers if that is all that is available (Not Always though). Typically you need to look for 'Support' then 'Downloads' and then 'Drivers' and then for your model. Since your system came with XP, the only drivers that would probably be on an installation disk would be XP drivers which are not compatible with 7.

For anyone else reading this: I recommend when upgrading to your operating system to check availability of drivers first, then download all to a USB stick so they are available as soon as they are needed during install. It will save you time and trouble later.
