Question about Compaq TFT5030 (Carbon, Silver) 15.1" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor "Goes to sleep"

I am trying to set up dual screen with my laptop and a compaq tft5030 monitor.

The problem is when I turn the monitor on it loads up but then the message "Going to Sleep" comes on the screen and the monitor goes off. It happens everytime I switch it on.

When the vga cable is disconnected from the laptop and the monitor is turned on it says "Check Video Cable"so I know it can tell that it is plugged into the laptop.

I tried going into the display settings as you would do for setting up dual screen but the laptop doesn't seem to be recognizing the monitor is connected at all.

Can anyone help me please?

    I've been into the control panel and tried that but it doesn't seem to know the monitor is plugged into the laptop. I also tried going into device manager and selecting display adapters but the monitor isn't showing up in the list.
    :S

    The laptop is recognising the monitor now, but I still have the problem that the monitor is simply "Going to Sleep" whenever it is turned on
    :S

Have you tried to go in thru the control panel and select "display"? From here you can go to the screen saver section and adjust the time it takes for the screen to cut out. Of course you want to use a monitor that you can read before you set up both of your screens.. See if that helps....

    Sorry that i wasn't helpful, i hope you can find the solution. Did you also try to go through the settings section, of the display, then making sure the original was in there and also check the box that says to extend your desktop to the other monitor? That's the only thing i can think of, that would help.

Unfortunately, this is a standard problem, as when your laptop goes into sleep mode, it shuts off power to the secondary monitor, without giving it the signal to go into sleep mode. You could try digging around your settings, but most likely you'll just need to turn off the monitor when you're not using it.

this sounds like the screen may be trying to display a resolution higher than the screen can support. Try booting up in safe mode and seeing if you can see your desktop. Also is this the only monitor connected to your PC or is this a dual screen setup? If it is dual screen you may not have your second montor turned on.

Monitor will not display


Your display app controls that, try updating drivers/ software for graphics card on laptop.
Or press the monitor button (usually Fn + something) till it comes right

Monitor TFT 5015 now says "going to sleep


Make sure the laptop's external VGA port is turned on. There will be a function key somewhere on the keyboard (location varies by manufacturer and model) that controls the connector. If the connector has gotten turned off the external monitor will go to sleep because it's not getting any input.

No DVi input, then computer goes to sleep


Hi publicworker,

I had a similar problem whereas my monitor went to sleep mode after a few minutes. I'm running an HP LP 2065 in dual mode with another HP flat screen. However, I did resolve the issue after resetting the output settings.

How to do that:
  • right mouse click on the desktop
  • select graphic options
  • output to
  • extended desktop
Maybe some changings/modification will help you too.

No monitor power


i had the same problem with my technosonic, power leads lit up but no power to monitor. was about to throw it away when i realised my laptop lead would fit monitor, so as one last ditch attempt i plugged it in and lo and behold the monitor came on. so the problem was the power lead, even though it lit up and appeared to be working,not the monitor.
