Monitor switching to standby - CV735 monitor with Presario 5000 series desktop

I recently disconnected various cords from my computer in order to move it, and now after reconnecting, when i turn on the computer, the green power light for the monitor comes on for a few seconds, and then switches to orange (standby?). the monitor stays black the entire time, and the cpu shows that it's powered up. i have checked the cords multiple times and am pretty confident that everything is connected correctly. i'm using all the same power supplies that i was using before disconnecting cords. i would greatly appreciate some help here. thanks in advance.

Monitor wont power up

It is possible especially if it has a loose or slightly faulty component and moving the monitor has caused it to fail especially if you bump it in the move.
Does the power LED light up when you switch on the monitor?

My L1718S monitor go`s on and off all the time

The monitor switching off can be due to various reasons. I am ennumerating them..check each point carefully. 

1. check the vga cable and power cable going to the monitor. they may be loosely connected. make sure the cables are firmly into the port at both ends. 

2. there maybe power saving mode active... computer going into standby/suspend mode. check the power settings. right click desktop > properties> screensaver  tab... click power button.

3. If not using a UPS try checking the power supply for voltage fluctuations and spikes

Hope this will resolve your issue otherwise post back.

Monitor stuck in standby..?

* Did the beeps go away when adding the new video card?

* Have you booted in "Safe Mode" (Press F8 before Windows starts).
In safe there are at least two options:

option - delete all the video adapter drivers then add the new one

option - change video adapter driver to Standard VGA

[If needed, write back for more instructions.]

* Also make & model of: computer (or motherboard) & monitor

Need new power cord for x2gen monitor

You should be able to go to any local store like BestBuy and pick up a power cable. The monitor uses the same power cable as a Desktop PC.
