Monitor loses signal or black screens while playing games

Monitor loses signal or black screens while playing games

What may be happening is the video card isn't getting enough power or air circulation and is overheating/over stressed, therefore shutting down.

To test this, run a graphic taxing game like Sims 3 or 4. If the monitor looses signal or black screens frequently, it may be best to have it looked at. It could possibly mean that the power supply and/or video card needs to be replaced.
