Standby mode in a desk top computer


What OS are you running? There can be up to 3 places in the OS or sftwr. ( have you recently dwnlded. any 3rd party sftwr. since this started? If yes, uninstall it AFTER you go back into it and adjust what you have changed to Power Options, Display Properties, and Administrative Tools), so go back and udo any recent changes, esp. if it is in 3rd party sftwr. do not empty your Trashcan, yet.

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."

Cooling fan runs constantly coming off stand-by


Has it always done this or is this a recent problem?
Try this: right click on your desk top's start screen, select properties, select screen saver, select poweer, select hibernate. Make sure that hibernate is checked and select apply. Now when you hibernate your computer will remember all the info you were working on AND it should make the fan run normally on start up.
Not all computers have the hibernate feature and it cannot be added, so let's hope yours was built with it at the factory. Good luck!

Stand-by


Go to Start-Control Panel-Power options
there is an option for standby mode adjust accordingly, when you preformed a system recovery it probably set standby to never.

Comuter will not stay in standby mode.


So why do you need the computer in stand-by mode anyway? My computers are either on or off. Off saves power and hardware.

Stand by mode


Check the display cables , and if you have one test a different monitor on your computer.

If this is not a sceen problem, then it is an internal fault possibly the motherboard.

Try first leaving the PC power cord unplugged for ten, fifteen minutes and check if PC restarts afterwards.

My computer wont start up


First try pressing F2 at start up to see if you can get to setup. Also pressing F12 may get you a boot menu. If cd is already set as first boot you may get a chance to boot from a Windows cd. The idea here is to get to a minimal Windows configuration like setup or safe mode (F8) to see if this is a hardware or operating system fault. Two common issues with eMachines are power supply problems where repetitive reboots can actually fry the motherboard or if the PC has a few years use the CMOS battery. Steve Medley
