According to the specs page at the link below, the maximum temperature for
that GPU is 105C, so you're getting no where close to it unless that
temperature reading is incorrect. The problem could be in the monitor
If heat is causing a problem with the video card, it isn't going to sleep
it is experiencing a breakdown. Possibly some circuit opening up somewhere
and the video signal to the monitor is being interupted (could be worse, PCs
are often crashed). Doesn't necessarily have to be a fault in the GPU
itself, it could be any circuit on the card, be it a micro fracture in a
copper trace or a solder join opening up as the card heats up or even a
circuit inside a chip.
Check if the same thing happens with a different monitor to eliminate the
monitor itself as being the problem. If possible check also with a different
video card just to make sure the cause of the issue isn't something else in
your computer. http://www.nvidia.com/object/product...9600gt_us.html
