Monitor Crash?

When I leave home, I leave my computer open, and the screen as well.
When I come back, I usually just press any button on the keyboard the screen gets out of the screensaver.
But within one week, this happened to me twice: I press any button, but the screen stays black. And after a while of trying to get out of the screensaver, my computer just restarts, then shuts down automatically, and I have to relaunch it manually.

What the fux? :hurr:



None.

Not really enough information for me to contribute. My laptop sometimes fails to go to sleep, so I have to manually reboot it, which sounds similar to what you're saying.

Does it occur when you're idling a specific program? Maybe there's something unique that was running on both of those days, and that's what is causing the issue.

In any case, due to the restart/shut down thing you described, I would say that the monitor is not your problem, but rather a side-effect to the underlying issue.

Do you have a custom screensaver? What's your OS? Did you install anything new in the past couple weeks?

No custom screensaver, I just set it to go black: it wastes less energy (I think).
OS == ? (Windows 7?)
I downloaded torrents of the Seasons 3, 4, 5 and 6 of LOST. But they all seemed extremely safe. :O



None.

ᴄʜᴇᴇsᴇ ɪᴛ!

torrents have nothing to do with it. I don't know of any viruses which install automatically. turn off the blank screensaver and see if it still crashes (just manually turn off your monitor.)

Butch -- prob some weird character on a string somewhere or something dumb like that

Ultraviolet -- It's weird indeed, not really sure what is so special about Spellsword that causes it to react differently on Remastered, usually EUDs are the cause of things like that

Zoan -- I haven't played in like 2 years so maybe something changed I don't know about

No-Name-Needed-II shouted: Zoan No idea if anything changed.. I've made several maps that push TMOANC to the limit and they are still working.. 3 causes of it I've narrowed down are -Too many islands which some terrain on certain tilesets can create micro islands on cliff edges with basic isometric.. -Too many changes in elevation from high to mid to low ground.. -And too many tiles from certain doodads that block tank fire..
Any clue as to why a map which would previously work fine on past patches would now suddenly not work on the current remastered patch?

Zoan -- I'll try Butch's suggestion of running in 32-bit, maybe that will fix it?

It crashes as it does when you use EUD's incorrectly - like it closes starcraft and has the error window pop up with a ticket to send to Blizzard. I know it's not EUDs though since obviously spellsword doesn't use any, so IDK what it is.

Zoan -- Also my KOTK maps all have the nooks and crannies issue when they didn't before; what changed?
