Hi,

Probable reason for the beeping sound are:

  • defective, dirty or faulty seated memory sticks; clean, re-seat or replace (most likely);
  • defective, dirty or faulty seated video card; clean, re-seat or replace (likely);
  • corrupted BIOS; flash or replace motherboard (least likely).
The monitor going into sleep mode is because it does not sense any usable video signal from the computer.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

My computer will boot, I can hear the windows noises but the monitor will not come on at all. It keeps flashing. Also after a little bit the light on the tower starts flashing like the monitor does.


Hello,

try to unplug and plug the cable from monitor to your pc, this is a problem of a connection. If it does not help, try some other cable which is working on another computer.

Flashing tower light is not a problem, it probably starts flashing just because of you are not doing anything on your computer, so it turns to sleep mode.

Hope this helps,
Lucas

Beep and blue flashing light monitor states going to sleep


in that case you need to open the tower or CPU and reseat RAM and graphic card if you have 1
and then try to start the computer
it should work
and if you still get beeps.
and can try to plug memory card 1 by 1
if you have more than 1 memory card
if the computer starts with 1 memory card
then it could be the issue with the memory card
if not then the slot on the motherboard is gone bad
and the motherboard needs to be replaced or repaired

Unpacked computer after move moniter will not stay on it comes on and says going to sleep shuts off please help


Hi
please check the cable between the computer tower and the monitor.
either the cable is not connected properly or the cable is defective.
this is a message you normally get when the computer is off, and you try turning on the monitor alone.

hope it helps

I have a desktop XPS 410, it went into sleep mode but will not wake up. I unplugged all the cords and still nothing. the monitor states its in sleep save. how do i get it to wake up?


you may have a computer issue, you may have a monitor issue.
If the computer is powering on, (Green power led on tower and all 4 diags LEDs flash and then finally go out), then the issue is most likely the Monitor. From your description, I'd say monitor, try a different one or try this monitor on another system.
If you have diagnostic LED indications on the tower then this information may help

My hp2009m monitor goes into sleep mode


Monitors are programmed to go to sleep when there is no input. If you shut it down on the other "tower" also it will do the same. You need to physically hit the power button on the monitor to actually shut it off.

Cpu says no input vga signal, then goes to sleep


The no input VGA signal just means that the monitor is not receiving anything from the graphic card on the tower. Is the card a digital (DVI) output card? You'll know by the connector, it's white and slightly wider than a standard VGA connector. If so, perhaps the monitor is set to the wrong input?

If that isn't the case, and the computer is using an on-board or built-in graphics controller, you could try resetting the system's CMOS settings by setting the clear-settings jumper on the system board, or simply remove the plug and CMOS battery for a few minutes. Check the computer's documentation on the exact steps to do this.

Hope this helps!
