Hi, Welcome to LQ!

LQ has a fantastic search function that may save you time waiting for an answer to a popular question.

With over 3 million posts to search it's possible the answer has been given.

You may need to turn off power saving in bios.

Check your motherboard manual.

Another thing you might try first is to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and #(comment out) any lines with dpms

web search "dpms" to see why.

Regards Glenn
