Unhappy Samsung Syncmaster B2330 Blackout on games

Hi i just recently purshased a Samsung Syncmaster B2330 wish I have attached to an Nvidia 9600GT dual dvi via the dvi port. I'm running windows 7 professional, I downloaded the latest drivers from nvidia site I dont know if it's a Monitor or Graphic Card Issue but everything is fine until I run a game, in every resolution It lets me run it like 2 to 3 minutes when the screen just blacks out and the blue led in my monitor starts to blink nothing I can do to fix this till I reset my pc even Ive tried to turn off and on change source in the monitor with no luck.

This happens even with a dvi to vga converter I tought it was aa dvi problem but when i hooked up the monitor with the vga cable the same problem happened. I read here: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=82982 that some people had fixed the issue installing a program called Powerstrip but I just dont know what parameters are the good ones for my screen...

It has to be the latest nVidia drivers. I had the same issue in some games, until I rolled back to the previous drivers. Try the drivers on this page. This should fix your problems.

Is the card getting proper ventilation? Have you tried re-seating the card?
