Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

Monitor went to sleep and won't wake up

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.

I have a desktop XPS 410, it went into sleep mode but will not wake up. I unplugged all the cords and still nothing. the monitor states its in sleep save. how do i get it to wake up?


you may have a computer issue, you may have a monitor issue.
If the computer is powering on, (Green power led on tower and all 4 diags LEDs flash and then finally go out), then the issue is most likely the Monitor. From your description, I'd say monitor, try a different one or try this monitor on another system.
If you have diagnostic LED indications on the tower then this information may help

I've got a HP w1907v monitor and latly it has been going into sleep mode without warning while i'm using it. All my power saver settings are set to off.


If this monitor is going into sleep mode the normally blue power led will change to yellow. This indicates loss of video signal or possible out of range resolution. If the picture goes dark and the power lite stays blue, you have a backlight malfunction. It can be an inverter power fault but this model mostly has worn out backlights causing a shutdown condition.

Dell screen (1901FP) won't come out of power saver mode


hold down the Fn and F8 keys, and it worked fine for me. or if your problem is you cannot wake from power saving mode (after your PC goes to sleep, then its probably just the driver for your video card). VISTA has some issues with certain drivers that the PC cannot wake from sleep

Base on the information given to me.

I think your computer is on sleeping mode.

first thing check if the video cable is not loose connecting the pc.

because what would happend, if it is loos it would turn on and off at times.

The other thing you can do.

right click on the desktop.
go to properties
go to screen saver
click on power

adjust the time you want your monitor to shut off.

When I select sleep or hibernate mode - the monitor stays black...


Hit the keyboard keys. It is better to just turn sleep and hibernate off and just use a screen saver or tun it off.
