Nvidia XFX 8800GT Blank Display and Monitor Shuts Off

If you are reading this post, you might be facing a similar issue like myself with Nvidia GeForce XFX 8800GT where the monitor goes blank and shuts off after loading the operating system or playing game for just 15 or even 5 minutes.

Before the monitor goes blank your mouse might hang up and become unresponsive, some time the BOD(blue screen of death).Thequcik specifications are NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT 512MB DDR3 PCI Express Graphics 2.0 Alpha Dog Edition.

Interesting thing to notice is that the CPU keeps running, the only way to see the activity on the monitor or screen is to restart/reboot the PC or power cycle. This post will be useful to troubleshoot and diagnose the issue whether it is a faulty XFX 8800gt or your cpu box.

Things that you need to check.

1)Try Updating your nvidia 8800gt graphic card drivers to the latest available version.
2)Try Changing the ram on your mother board to a different slots(if available), if possible replace with other ram
3)Check Your Monitor cables are tightly plugged and also check your monitor supports the frequecy of the display.(Today most of the displays are lcd and tft, that should not be a issue)
