How to stop screen from going black?

Question

i have just formatted my computer put all the system utilities on everything was up and running and in the last hour it as crashed for no apparent reason. the screen goes black and i hear a clicking sound. I was connected to the internet. I do not know what the problem is, i have gone into power management and turned everything off. it seems to have solved the problem and nothing has happened since it crashed. It has done this on numerous occasions. Thats why i formatted the computer and installed Window because i thought there was something wrong with windows. Could you please tell me what is wrong is it something to do with power or memory.

I am in dire need for help.

Thank you

Your monitor is going back because your video card is bad or you need drivers for that video card Boot into safe mode and delete the existing driver Boot normally again and you should boot into low res mode Reinstall your video drivers if it is not the drivers you may need a new video card It also could be the monitor Try hooking up a different monitor to your pc If that one works it could be that the monitor is no good.
