Monitor does not turn on automatic

When I turn on my computer and the monitor it does not turn on or show a display. I have to turn it off and on several times before it would flicker before finally turning on, but once it is turned on it stay on until the next cold boot,

I have a Princeton 20" LCD monitor (Model VL2018W) appromiately four years, and it has been fine up until recently.

    Hello acdr,



    I forgot to add that the power is on for both computer and monitor it is just the monitor does not displays a solid picture only one that flickers and at the end goes blank or black.



    This only happens when both the computer and the monitor is sitting idle for a long per and not powered on.

    Thanks acdr, but the problem is not in the power saving mode. It has to do with the monitor and the connections(DVI). I try switching out the cords with a VGA cord. I used a DVI adapter on the end that goes into the monitor and it worked fine.



    I think that it maybe a faulty DVI cord that has my monitor going crazy or acting strange.



    I don't think that it could be my video card because I had upgraded it in the beginning of all this, and it worked fine for awhile.

My Dell E173fp monitor display doesn't work with my macbook


The fine print says it should work. Real life might be different. Do you have a genius bar, found at Apple stores, anywhere close? If so, make an appointment and let them make the connection for you. The genius bar is a free service and I've never found anything that they haven't been able to fix...and fix it quickly...if it's fixable.

E machine model T3626 turns on display doesnt work and doesnt power off???


Sounds like either the Monitor is bad or the Video Card is bad. Try plugging another monitor on the computer and if it can't show a display then more than likely the Video Card is bad. If it shows on the monitor you just plugged in, then the original monitor is bad.

LG L1730S 17" LCD Monitor


Hi Anand,

You need to check your power options settings and modify it , so that your monitor does not turn off automatically.


If you are using windows xp , go in control panel and then there would be an icon for power options , double click the power options and then you would find settings which read turn off monitor , turn off hard disk etc... select the turn off monitor to never mode or as per your convenience and you would have your problem solved.

Hope this helps.

My monitor shuts down after one second.


Dell monitors automatically go into power-save mode after a preset amount of time when the computer is inactive. The Dell monitor will go completely black, instead of showing a screensaver. This doesn't mean that your Dell computermag-glass_10x10.gif has shut down. Instead, this allows your monitor to essentially turn off until it's needed again. You can change how long it is before the Dell monitor goes into power-save mode by changing your display settings.
  1. Step 1 Press any key on your keyboard or move your mouse. Either will turn off power-save mode. Alternately, you can press the power button on your Dell computer tower or laptop.
  2. Step 2 Press any key a second time if the monitor goes from power-save to stand-by mode. Stand-by mode allows the screensaver to appear.
  3. Step 3 Enter your user name and password into the login prompt if your computer requires a login. Press "Enter" to begin using your Dell computer.
  4. Step 4 Change the display settings on your Dell monitor to prevent your monitor from going into power-save mode prematurely. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and choose "Properties." Click the "Screensaver" tab and press "Power." Beside "Turn off Monitor," choose a time amount from the drop-down list and press "Apply."

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

This problem may occur due to wrong driver of display card or wrong display settings.
Solution:
1- Start you computer in safe mode.
2- Remove display card driver.
3- Restart you computer.
4- Install display card driver (if it does not pick automatically).

Now it should show default settings. I hope it would solve your problem.
