    Windows 7
    DH61WW Motherboard
    XFX GT240 1GB DDR5 graphics card........
    and my power supply is of 450 w

    the problem is that i when i am playing NFS CARBON ... it plays for like 10 to 15 minutes and then the Monitor turns off.....the keyboard turns off....the mouse turns of..... but the CPU is still ON
    ive checked my CPU'S temperatures all remain around 47-48 degree Celsius

    this happens even if i play Prince Of Persia (2008) on the MOST minimum settings like 640x480

    my Monitor is IBM C190 is working fine there is no problem with it....the Refresh Rate is minimum at 60 HZ and resoultion at recommended 1280x1024

    i dont know what is the problem .... my PC is like brand new and i have double checked all the power cords and i also have THE LATEST DRIVERS OF GeForce GT 240 card 1 GB DDR5 details of which are :
    released 23/2/2011

    there is no OVERHEATING [checked through CoreTemp software]
    there is no problem with the POWER SUPPLY [Brand new 450w]

    and after 10 minutes monitor keyboard and mouse turn OFF but CPU remains ON

    so i really dont know whats the problem.........

    is it my MONITOR ? or GRAPHICS CARD ? help

    Okay, so what is your video card (or on-board video's) make and model? Your computer may be over-heating while you are playing games. Remove the side of the computer and see if the problem goes away
