Monitor Issues While Playing Games

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My fairly old computer (around six years) is having trouble playing games. After several minutes of playing, the screen goes to sleep without a reason. If I try to turn it off, or unplug it it will not go back to the original screen. My computer is a 64 bit.

Here's the details on it:

Manufacturer: DELL Inc

Model: DELL ST2210

Categories: LCD monitor

Description: 1920 x 1080 Pixel Resolution 21.5 LCD Display

VGA, DVI and HDMI Connectivity

Games Affected:


Empire: Total War

Garry's Mod

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Civilization 5


Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion

Star Wars- Battlefront 2

Thanks for your time!

Sounds like your graphics card is bust. Try checking temperature while playing, watch for sudden rises.

Probably the graphics card. Had the same problem, replaced the graphics card, everything worked!
