What is wrong with my PC?

Here a description of what it is doing...

I will be in the game, having a conversation or w/e..and all the sudden my monitor goes black and the button the tower (has a light around it) the light will start blinking. I can't turn it off by holding the power button down. I have to unplug it.. then after I unplug it, it will continue to blink for like 30 seconds. Then I plug it back and boot back up.. play a bit longer.. then it does it again.

In one instance last night the monitor went into sleep mode or w/e.. but the PC kept going.. So, I had to Hard boot it off.. (that doesn't sound right) had to hold the "turn on" button down till it turned off. Then I turned it back on and the monitor was fine.

so.. what is wrong with my PC.

It's gotta be a ghost, or maybe a UFO. I think you should call the Ghosthunters

What operating system? It sounds like it's trying to sleep or hibernate and failing. If it's XP go to Control Panel -> Power Settings and change those up to be a bit higher.

I don't think it is the monitor, as the whole PC kinda shuts down.. It hasn't done it since I turned hibernate off.. so going to see how that goes.
