Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
After the screen saver times out, the monitor goes to sleep. This is indicated by the blue power indicator flashing. The monitor has gone to sleep, but will not return to normal operation. There is no picture displayed. I have tried another monitor, that works fine. I have tried rebooting, but nothing seems to help, including a power off/on of the monitor. What's happening? Thanks! Same problem. Put the laptop to sleep manually, or automatically, and the monitor does not wake up. I have an HP Pavilion entertainment PC. I read a few other blogs, and it seems like the problem may be related to the graphics card. I think this laptop is using the ATI Radeon graphics card.
It sounds like a driver issue, but more likely the monitor driver, not the video card, since the other monitor works properly.
If you go into the video properties, check the monitor settings. You should be able to switch it to a generic monitor. You also need to make sure that you have the correct monitor refresh frequency set. If you have a mis-match, the video card could send signals at a rate the monitor can;t handle, which is why it won't "wake" even after a reboot and might need to be unplugeed to get it to come back on.
