Call Dell for support. Looks like something in motherboard detects something (like temperature) then shut down your system.
Probably only need cleaning up inside.

Monitor is switching off immediately after system is switched on. Again when monitor is switched on, images appear for about 3 seconds and again monitor switches off.pl give the solution.


You need to determine if you is turning off or going into standby mode. When your monitor shuts off, the power light will turn orange if it is in standby or the light will turn completely off if the monitor turns off. If your monitor goes to standby, that means that your monitor is losing signal which indicates a problem with your PC. #1 Make sure cable is firmly secured and both screws are tight #2 Check your video card make sure that it is firmly in its slot. Take it out and put it back in. *as long as your computer is open give it a good cleaning with compressed air* If those things check out it is possible that your video card has failed and needs to be replaced.
If your monitor is powering off #1Check plugins- try something else (i.e. lamp) in the outlet #2 Try your PC's power cord in your monitor

Hi,

Might as well try to access it thru safe mode with networking if it s working fine , if not try to connect an external monitor / or better yet if you can access safemode with networking try to disable some of the start-up programs thru msconfig.

I have a shap lcd computer monitor and when i plug it into my computer and turn the power on, the little green power light comes on, screens back. and after 5-10 seconds the light turns orange and blinks...


It could be your monitor is fine. It simply goes to a cycle when its turned on and does not detect any signal coming from your CPU, it simply goes on standby mode (hence the darker image and orange/blinking light.) have you checked the computer (CPU) part?

PC or monitor, signal problems


your monitor is telling you it's on it's last legs..either that or your compaq has a bad video section. either is more vital than a video cable being loose.

Is this a Software/Config/Hardware Problem ?


Apparently someone must have went into your properties, By right clicking anywhere on the desktop, Choose properties and then screen saver and then power options, Once there look into the setting for hibernation,standby,sleep make sure that they are set so not shut monitor off after so many minutes. What I am thinking is when you quit using your mouse for any amount of time it turns the monitor off. I hope that gets you going, If not you can Write back here and ask me again we can look for another solution. Thanks
