Question about Dell E197FP LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Dell LCD monitor quickly goes sleep, on, off over and over

Last week I after my computer was "asleep" for awhile I went to "wake" it up. My computer woke up fine but the monitor went off, sleep, on (the power button shows no color (off), orange, then green, then off again) over and over very quickly and didn't stop. I unplugged the monitor for a little while and tried again. Same thing. I left it unplugged over night and it worked the next day.

A week later this happened again. Only this time after leaving it unplugged for the night it still is doing this when I plug it in.

I would recommend that you try it on another computer to see if you are able to reproduce the results. If that is the case you should look at any new drivers, software or updates that have been installed. If the issue continues with another PC, it sounds as though the monitor's power supply is possibly failing. in that case I would suggest you simply replace the whole monitor. Unless you are not shy with a soldering iron. ;) good luck!

You should be able to just press the main system unit power button to wake up your 'sleeping' computer which will then resume your Windows desktop and bring you back to the Login panel if you have a password set for your account.

Computer is asleep or the controller board inside is failing to pick up the signal from the computer or you got a loose connection ether or here you need to check the computer and rule out the possiabilites.. From there if that does not wrok the monitor is going to need to be fixed.

Try holding down the fn and f8 keys or if your problem is you cannot wake from power saving mode (after your PC goes to sleep, then its probably just the driver for your video card). VISTA has some issues with certain drivers that the PC cannot wake from sleep

Works when it wants to then turns whie with grey line in it


Hi

If only the monitor is going to sleep, then it could be a problem with the connection from the monitor to the computer or with the cable.

If the computer goes to sleep and if you are not able to wake it from sleep then check the sleep mode settings and also the power management settings for the keyboard and mouse.
You may also do a system restore if you are not able to wake the computer from sleep.
