Hi, does anyone else have this problem when running Call of Duty and it's follow-up games on PC? During a single and multiplayer game the monitor will suddenly go into sleep mode and the game and PC will then crash. Any patches available to stop this happening? Please help! Just got broadband so loving online gaming but this is ruining things! Cheers! Bertie

It seems like to me that would be a video card problem. Make sure your video card has the latest drivers. If it only happens with Q3 engine games [CoD, CoD:UO,ET, JKA, etc.,] then its likely a problem with open_gl. In either case update your video card drivers. Check your Screen Saver settings [Desktop==Right Click, Properties] Assuming your running Windows XP, make sure you have at least service pack one. Also run windows update, just in case.
