    Monitor shows black screen after been turned off manually

    i installed windows 8 on my new pc who includes Shappire 7870 xt boost and monitor Samsung T220. whether i turned off the monitor manually or it turns off automatic by power saver, sometimes the monitor shows only black screen. The monitor does turns on, it's light turn on, but all i get is black screen.

    i also have I5 4570 and Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H.after i installed windows, i installed the motherboard drivers, includes Intel HD Graphics 4600. Could it conflicts with the ATI's driver?

    also, when i connect the monitor to the motherboard it works fine (so far at least). but games doesn't run smoothly.

    Hello matizami, and welcome to EightForums,

    If your monitor works fine when connected to the motherboard, then the issue lies with your graphic card. Make sure you're running the latest drivers for your graphic card. Go here to update them.

    Your motherboard drivers won't conflict conflict with ATI drivers.
