Dell monitor screen jumps and screensaver won't ever turn on.

I have had this monitor for a couple of years and never had a problem. All of a sudden, the screen jumps up and down randomly. Also, my screensaver has stopped working.

    Yes hibernate is turned on.



    I guess what I have is two seperate problems that could possibly be related.



    My monitor jumps randomly. Sometimes it jumps more than others but I can't figure out what I am doing at the time that makes it jump more often.



    My screensaver will not ever kick in. I can see the preview on the settings page and I have changed the time before it kicks in several different times trying to get it to work. None of these things have seemed to help.

    Do you have sleep/hibernate turned on?

    How old is the monitor?

    What O.S. are you running?

First turn hibernate off. this is probably causing problem with your screensaver. when you say your screen jumps that leads me to believe that your monitor is probably on its way out. If you can try to hook up a diffferent monitor and see if you have the same results

Screensaver will not turn on after inactivity


This is an adjustment made in the control panel under I believe Display. From there you will have an option for Screen Saver. It should all be in there.

sounds like a videocard problem, thermal issue with the GPU, and yes running it 24/7 will decrease the lifespan of the monitor.

Dell 4700 sleep on bootup


ok here's what i can suggest. Two things.
1. Check your power settings by going to the Control Panel and then going to Power Options. Take a look at the power schemes..specifically the option where it says turn of monitor...you can select the "Always On" power scheme....if this doesn't do it...
2. Right click on your desktop and click on Properties. Go to the Screen Savers and verify that the time before the screensaver comes on is not something ridiculous like 1 minute. You can just disable the screensaver if you'd like by selecting "none"..

I'm pretty sure you're dealing with one of those two problems.

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."

It sounds more like the machine is overheating slightly. I would take it to a repair shop and ask them to check it out.

Getting frequent black screens on 1501 Inspiron Laptop


Black screen is probably a screen saver or the screen is turned off by power management software.
Check your screensaver setting. Change the screensaver to None to disable screensaver.
I assume you are using Windows XP.
If the LCD is turned off by power management, on the same screen with screen saver, on the lower part of the box there is a Power button. Click to open Power Options Properties. Set your monitor power properties there.
When the screen go blank and you have to push power button, probably the computer is set to go to stand by mode after some idle minutes. You can also set it here in system standby setting.

Problem when turning monitor off


mcdevito75 here LCD, or liquid Crystal display, chances are the crackling is the inside liquid display trying to capture the in comming electricity to make a display picture. Remember even an LCD is nothing more than a light bulb, a very intricate light bulb but a light bulb, and you have light bulbs burn out when you put them on and almost never as the are on burning. Turning the monitor itself off won"t really save electricity or the monitor itself as, when you shut down the computer from Start (left side of screen) the monitors screen saver comes on for 10--20 minutes then goes off, at this point the electricity is at the monitors on/off switch and not going thru the monitor at all. If you turn the monitor off at it"s on/off switch, the sudden jump of electricity to the monitor from it"s on/off switch could hurt it, or even the switch. I have a friend who turns off the monitor also and that friend had a bad monitor in 3 years. I never turn my monitor off just the computer itself. I'd speak with a Radio Shack, Staples, Best Buy ETC. for more advise. Me I;d say leave the monitor on. Hope this helps.
