Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

17 Flat screen stays dark for a few minutes before it finally shows a clear picture.

Then if I take a break for a few minutes it goes to sleep and now I have to wait a few minutes again for the screen to clear up. Sometimes it takes longer than other times.
Can I fix it or does it need to go to the shop.
And would it be worth spending money on it.
I can get another one for 100 dollars.
This is the one with the little bird on it.

What you are experiencing isn't "sleep" mode, it is the screen saver. If you have WINXP, right click on a clear area of the desktop, and select "Properties". When the DISPLAY PROPERTIES window appears, select the "screen saver" tab. Change the "WAIT" time to the time you wish the scrren saver to delay. If you don't want to have to login after a screen time out, uncheck the "On resume, display Welcome Screen" box.

My averatec lcd won't stay on

Can you try your monitor on another computer to see if it does this there as well? Usually this happens only when video is not detected coming from the PC. It could be as simple as a short in the monitor cable. If you have it connected to a laptop you'll also want to check you control panel power setting rules and then the screen saver under display.

Did you remove the CMOS battery and move the jumper on the systemboard to clear the CMOS? After a few minutes or so, put the jumper back and power on the machine. If it powers on fine, you can turn it off and put the CMOS battery back in.

My new monitor turns on then goes blank after a few seconds.

It sounds like a power issue OR weak signal. If you use an extension cable on your monitor cable this can couse the problem.
