Possibly a video card problem or severe virus. First download free Avast anti virus software and run preboot scan upon installation. If this does not fix the problem try doing a system restore to a time before this problem occurred. Start - programs - accessories - system tools - system restore

HI kissakiwi,

In the control panel's power option , you need to change the SYTEM STANDBY settings to never , and then the problem would be solved.

There are three options , turn of monitor, turn of hard disk and , system standby , if you select all of these three to 'never' then you won't have this problem.

Remember you can also change the settings via the screen saver tab when you right click and select properties on the desktop.

Let me know in case you have any queries. Hope this helps ...:)

Just installed a LG WH08LS20 in my computer, everytime I put in a Blu-Ray disc the computer freezes up. Any ideas?


The exact same thing happens to me. It reads Blu-Rays, burns DVDs fine, but when I put in a blank Blu Ray disc to burn, it freezes. As soon as I open the tray, the computer continues as normal as though nothing happened. I can't find anything on what is going on.

Drive does read audio cd but not dvd.writer also can't burn any.


If you have Roxio or Sonic installed, sometimes the configuration will get corrupt.

Uninstall all application software that relates to any CD/DVD burning, and try the following:

Download the following FREE burner....it is the best burning software I have ever used and it is FREE!
ALWAYS set the burn speed very LOW....4X for CD's and 2X for DVDS and you will never go back to the other burners again!
The BEST options for using InfraRecorder is to burn data discs, burn Disc images and to create Disc images.
I trashed Roxio and Sonic because they are too memory dependent and they contradict each other's configuration...

does the ON indicator light stays on ? if it does then the problem is a cold solder or burn solder . If your handy , you have to open monitor and look inside the PC BOARD where you ll see a transformer , check for a burn spot around that area , re solder it , and try again , it should be working properly, hope this helps and please rate solution , thanks AJ

Dell E178FPf LCD monitor goes to standby and won`t come on again


Check your Power options in Windows.

right click on the desktop. select properties, Gop to the screen saver tab, click on the power button at the bottom right and check to see if its set to turn off or standby the monitor, turn this off.

Keep the screen saver on and set it for like ten minutes.

Also, on the monitor itself, it may have a sleep or power save option set as the default. check all the monitor settings on the actual moniotr itself.
