Question about Computers & Internet

I have a Presario 916us. When it sits idle for a while the monitor goes black and I cannot get it out of "hibernation". I've tried every key and combination and nothing seems to work. Any suggestions?

If the operating system is vista, then is has gone to sleep, all you have to do is press the on/off button
you can change the settings, go to the control panel > power options and on the left you will see "change when the computer sleeps"

hope this helps

Sounds like your monitor or video card is bad. To isolate the problem try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same thing as your original monitor, then the video card inside the computer is bad.

This is most likely an hardware related issue in which case you need to get it checked. To narrow the issue, you can try hooking up your laptop to an external monitor if possible and see if it does the same. If not, then there's probably an issue with the displays internal connectors. You can also try powering your laptop with only the power cable attached and without the battery, then reset all power management settings. If the problem goes away then it's probably a power management issue.

You might have put the computer into hibernate; have you tried pressing the power button? It should wake the computer up if it is asleep or hibernating. It is also possible that your monitor cable is unplugged.

Cannot get by dell screen to come back on once it hibernates


sounds like a power scheme setting is shutting off your monitor after a time-out period. sometimes monitor will not return without re-boot. change your power options settings in control panel.

Mymonitor is black and the on button from the monitor is green and is flashing


i havent seen this question asked, and believe me i have searched. i have compaq presario, windows xp media edition 2005, 64 amd processor, model # SR2017CL, with HP 1703 17" monitor. Prob-put computer in hibernate mode other evening, without turning it off. when i woke up, screen had diagonal lines going across it. i rebooted, well manually restarted, since comp would not respond.
Message comes up white with black writing, essentially, prob with active desktop, restore or turn off. i tried to turn off and screen went back to diag. lines. looks like the horizontal hold of a tv screen is asque. tried adjusting monitor to no avail.
tried a few more times, was fine for a few mins then went to same thing. now when i turn monitor on it blinks red, blue, and so on.
just whole screen that color. so i am at the point where i dont
know if its the comp or the monitor. (i am quite a newby)
ty for any help you can give
