    Problem is I can't remember exactly what the message is, apart from no signal being received!

    I took it back to Comet for testing and they say it's the graphics card gone but on this model it's built into the mother board, which will need replacing at a cost of approx £300!



    It's only 15 months old!

My hp pavilion slimline s3020n pc is on but cannot view on the screen it says on the monitor VGA: no input signal


Check the video cable connectors, remove the video connectors and reconnect them again.
Check the monitor input settings make sure the input is set to VGA and not to DVI.
Try a different monitor.

As soon as i turn on my computer my monitor says no input signal and then goes to sleep i have an hp


either your video card has stopped working or your cable to your monitor or the monitor is bad. Try to hook another monitor up to it see if it turns off if it doesn't then the video card needs to be replaced. If it does its the monitor.

I have a HP Pavillion Slimline S3500t; a few days ago the computer turned ff completely. Every time I have tried to reset it, or start it, the monitor give me an error message ''monitor going to sleep''...


When you boot the system, do you get any life at all in the monitor? Splash screen, perhaps?

You could try to boot it to safemode (tapping the F8 key on boot) to see if you get any image. Other than that, it looks as though your video bit the dirt. A replacement video card may be in order.

Hope this helps - do let us know how you make out.

Cheers,

TIH

HP Slimline Pavillion s3123w monitor going to sleep.


Sounds like the motherboard might be bad but go thru these steps.


Unseat and reseat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at at time and turn on the computer after each stick reinsertion.


If that doesn't get the video to come back up then go ahead and unseat and reseat the CPU. Then try turning on the computer.

If that doesn't do it, make sure there is no power going to the hard drive or the dvd drive. Then try turning on the computer.

If you do all of these steps and you still have no video, then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

It goes to sleep and won't wakeup


I believe this model only comes with Vista. Go to Control Panel, and on the left hand side click Classic View then click the icon for Power Options.

There will be a few options under Preferred Plans and one is selected (Filled in dot)

Under the Power Plan that is selected, click Change Plan Settings and on the next screen, click Change Advanced Power Settings.

You will have a new window that opens up with a bunch of categories with little boxes with + signs. Click the + Sign box beside sleep to open op the menu. In the options under sleep, change HYBRID sleep and HIBERNATE to NEVER. Especially the Hybrid sleep as this was a problem I found with Vista. It sounds like the computer is going into the Hybrid/Hibernation and not comping out from it unless you power off the computer and turn it back on

Also, click the + sign beside Hard Disk and make sure the option to "Turn off Hard Disks After" is also set to NEVER
