Last january i bought myself a Packard bell ixtreme X9610 and up until now
the only game i have played on it is Oblivion.
A couple of months ago i noticed my monitor switching off losing signal and the music skipping after about half an hour of gaming.
I assumed this was a fault with oblivion seeing as that game is riddled with bugs and ignored it.
Not so long ago i got bored with oblivion and started playing other games,
The games on the orange box, ut3 and most recently red faction 3.
The problem sadly affects them all.
It can happen at any time, first the monitor goes and the sound skips (not always, some times the sound goes on) and then i have to restart.
I have not yet found an answer searching google so i hope someone here might have one.

Edit: My monitor turning off or the pc crashing has never happened outside of a game, touch wood.
