    Your pc is either set to quick or silent boot or it wasn't shutdown but only sleeping.

    If it is sleeping, then it will not go through the normal start up routine as it was not shut down.

    How do you turn it off at night?

Go to control panel-->power options---->advanced. Here "when I press the power button" should be set to "shut down". Same with the "sleep button".

Now go to hibernate. Here uncheck the box under hibernation.
Press apply then ok. I hope your problem will be solved.

Hit start Alienware computer goest to alien head on screen then straight to sleep mode. Please read


When you say computer clock do you mean the LED read out on the mother board? if so the numbers you are seeing are error codes you will need the mother board manual to know what those codes mean. If you don't have the manual it's possible you can go to the mother board manufacturers web site and download one then you can look up the codes to see what the problems are. Hope this helps

Benq fp581 screen goes blank after about half a second evertime i turn on my computer.


Even thought the monitor looks blank check to see if you can see a faint image (shining a flashlight at the monitor sometimes helps). If you can see an image it could mean that the inverter board has gone bad.

I have also heard of an overheated computer causing a similar problem.

Computer screen goes into "digital power saving mode"


You should be able to adjust the settings on the monitor to prevent it from going into power save mode, or at least to delay how long it takes before it goes into power save mode. Press the menu button and look for settings that might disable or change power save mode.

Also, does your desktop/PC display show anything before the monitor goes into power save mode? If nothing comes up, its possible that you have a loose VGA connection or that your video card/motherboard are defective in some ways. Try using a different monitor.

If the other monitor works fine with your computer, try changing/lowering the screen resolution. If in XP right-click on the desktop and go to Properties, and select the tab for display settings and adjust the resolution. If in Vista/Win7, right-click the desktop and select Screen Resolution/Display Settings and adjust it there. Then check and see if your newer monitor works on it.

If the other monitor also doesn't show any display, most likely the problem is either with your video cable or your PC's video card/motherboard, not the monitor.

Hope that helps. Good luck

Dell E171FP Monitor goes black after 2 secs


Hi, I don't think the problem is with your monitor. Your monitor sounds like it's doing exactly what it's supposed to do. The monitor is supposed to turn off if there's no cable attached, which means there's no signal input. When the screen goes black, does the power light stay on and turn orange? or does it go off as well? I would recommend that you lower your screen resolution to 1280x1024 or lower in the Display Properties window, then remove your primary monitor, and connect the monitor to your desktop computer. You should see it light up when connected. The monitor auto-senses when there's a computer attached to the cable and when there's a signal. If it doesn't see a signal, it goes black to save power.

The screen went blank while the computer was on, we restarted it, the screen shows the Dell sign & the white bar then it goes blank, it won't go into safe mode, the light is green on the monitor, what...


If there is a faint image in the background it is the coils on the planar if no image it is either the invertor or the backlight
If you have a faint image resolder the coils or replace them

Computer turns itself off alot


Is it going into stand by or actually shutting off? The only way to tell is when you turn it on does it jump straight into windows or does go through a list of things including how much memory there is?

My screen goes blank immediately after initial DELL startup image


You can either try to reset the BIOS, or have the restore cd fix it for you. By the way, what does the message say?

System passes the logon screen


Keep tapping the F8 key while you boot your machine, hopefully you will get a black screen with some white writting on it.
Using the up and down arrows select Boot Safe Mode without Networking.
Once you boot into safe mode go to programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and follow the wizard to restore your machine back to a time and date before you installed the modem software.

No image on tv using video card.


If you open the Radeon software utility, in the advanced screen settings you should be able to set "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" to on for the TV screen. Then all you have to do is open your video player software and drag its window across to the tv, then maximise it. If you are having trouble doing this, some video player programs, especially dvd players playing dvds will not show the picture on the tv. If you want to watch .avi files then the best free player around at the minute is DivxPlayer - go to http://www.divx.com to download. Hope this helps, please ask again if not :)
