Why does my computer screen go blank or I get a blue screen when I play video games? 

by on March 29, 2013

Q: For the last 3 months my monitor has been randomly turning off and back on. When it does this in the top right corner it says VGI. Sometimes this will lead to a blue screen and restart my computer. I’ve been wanting to get the error code but since it is random I never know when to expect it. It also seems more inclined to do this when playing games. Don’t know if this is a memory issue or graphics or what. Any help would be appreciated.
