I have gone to Power Options trying to set the time when Monitor would go dark so I could leave the pc on all the time and it will NOT change. The screen will stay on day and night.

If i leave computer on without anyone using it . computer goes to black/dark screen , can't perform any functions. also computer crashes at times during use.


You need to check your power settings. It is being set to go to turn of the drivers after a certain amount of time.

Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options Then change the power options so it does not shut off the hard drive.

Monitor comes on for 2 seconds and then goes all black. What type of problem do I have?


May be you have set "Changed" the setting of your monitor power. If it's set then try this step and see whether it's helpful to you or not. In Windows 7, Vista, or XP, to change the power management settings. To change power management settings in Windows 7, Vista, or XP: Note: If this doesn't match what you see, refer to About navigation settings in Windows.
For Windows 7 and Vista From the Start menu, select Control Panel. Then choose Power Options.
From the list in the left panel, click Choose when to turn off the display or Change when the computer sleeps.
Set your options. For each action, "Turn off the display:" and "Put the computer to sleep:", you can select times ranging from 1 minute to Never.
Click Save changes.
Windows XP From the Start menu, select Settings, and then Control Panel. Double-click Power Management or Power Options. From the "Turn off monitor:" drop-down menu, select a time from After 1 min to Never. Click Apply, and then click OK.

All the Best!

No signal with acer moniter


Check your power settings on your PC (Start Button ---> Settings ---> Control Panel ---> Power Options)

Under the "Power Schemes" tab you will find the dialogue "Turn off monitor:" and then your choice. The power option refers to the SIGNAL sent to the monitor, not the actual monitors power-source itelf (although some can control both). It will simply stop sending a signal to the monitor and "put it to sleep"

Change the setting to what is appropriate for your use, and you should be set!

Hope this helps!

Check your backlight settings, Power Settings, etc.....

You may have Vista (vista has other power settings such as a custom sleep mode which can fail sometimes to work properly with some hardware/monitor configurations).
So Disable any unconventional Hibrid Hibernation options k!

You can use the function keys to increase the brightness. Also if you go to Start, Control Panel, Power Options you can change the settings to give you more monitor time.

It sounds like the internal bulb in your monitor is going out. Some LCD monitors go through a slight warm-up period but it should not be 5-10 minutes. You may want to change your Power Saving settings to prevent from going into standby. Here's how:

Right-click in an open space on your desktop
Choose Properties
Click the Screen Saver tab
Down at the bottom look for the Power settings
Change the Monitor Standby to NEVER
Click OK

Good luck!!

The monitor is black


i've had this problem from even trying to restart my pc at times. it happens usually when you've changed or added something that the pc wasn't prepared to do. if you've installed a new card. disconect it and try again. installing the drivers and software for it first.
