Go into control panel and then power and disable anything to do with shuting down video and disable all power managment.
Try this and see what happens.

Hi,

       I also have a pure3d card in addition to my 2d windows card.  After installing the Pure3d, i also had that happen to my computer.  What you need to check is the wiring.  Make sure you have the Pure3d card cable connected properly to your Video output slot and that there is no slack or missing pins.
