Recently I have been experiencing an issue with my monitor while gaming. I'll be playing a game for not even 5 minutes, then my frames will drop to half of what they should be and then my monitor will lose signal. The only way for me to get signal back to my monitor is just by completely turning my PC on and off again. When my monitor loses signal, my PC is still running just fine and my sounds will still go to my headset. The monitor will just lose connection, say "no signal" and then put itself into rest mode and won't reconnect. Any advice is appreciated.

Specs on my computer are an intel i7-4790 processor, and Nvidia GTX760 3GB graphics card. It does happen with any game I have played recently, but it seemed to only start happening after I reinstalled World of Warcraft to play the expansion...but I had no issues before that. I have taken my computer apart and cleaned the fans, and I just updated my drivers.

Try turning down the settings in game. Or try resetting windows.

My settings are already very low, and it happens playing any game - regardless of how hard it makes my computer work.

Ambucias is right. 3GB video Memory for WOW is not enough!
