Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Monitor shutdown My computer intermittently shuts the monitor down after it has been running and has set idle for an hour or two. The only way I can get it back on is to reboot the computer. I have a PM800-M2 (1) motherboard with a Pentium 4 3.2Ghz processor. My monitor is an Envision 17'' CRT. The green light on the monitor turns to amber when it looses its signal. My experience tells me it could be the onboard video and if it is would adding an AGP video card possibly resolve this problem?

    I have not had a chance to try to fix the problem yet as I am waiting for an AGP card to replace the onboard video. In Power Options I have hybernate selected because I am using an APC UPS. This may have something to do with the monitor shutting down also. Will report back as soon as I know more. Thanks for the help.

Yes adding an AGP video card will likely fix it. Although you try not turning off the hard drive(s) and if that doesn't help, not turning off the System Standby in Power Options.

Another thing to try is open MSCONFIG and stop all start up Items under Selective Startup. If it goes away you need to find out which program is causing the problem.

When i shutdown my computer after that when lcd goes black then at that time a message shown on the black screen that "no input signal" and also glows little bit light with this message continuously.


Your monitor may have an option to set it as "manual" or "auto". If set in manual, you will have to turn off the monitor power switch each time. If it has the "auto" setting , it should shut off or "go to sleep" when it detects no input signal.

Monitor goes on and off........seemed to come on for the xp boot, but then disappears or is intermittant when the xp login page appears. Only fix sometimes is to reboot the computer. Very strange. Only...


In your Windows XP
  1. Go to Start and click
  2. The Start menu will open
  3. In the start menu click settings
  4. In the settings select "Control Panel"
  5. The Window of control Panel click "Power Options"
  6. In the Power options you will find Display time settings. These are the time settings that determine the time like if your computer stay idle for 5 min, the display will shut down.
  7. I suspect that this time is set to be very low like if there is no activity on the computer such as key punching, typically happens when you are reading an e-book Windows will automatically shut down the display. So you can increase the idle time to say 7-10 minutes and/or a similar setting is "Put the computer to sleep". Try to carefully alter the time values and you will find a good settings that work for you.
If the above tip does not work then there is definitely something wrong with your monitor's hardware most probably the power supply. You need to check it with a repair shop.

Good Luck!

Moniter shuts down while playing wow while not in windows mode


Go to your computer's Control Panel, Power properties, and change the power scheme to Always On, where hard disk shutdown, monitor turn off and system suspend are all set to "never". This should help.

My monitor keeps shutting down while my system is still running and I have to manually shut down my tower. This will happen anywhere from 1 - 10 times in an hour.


Check your power supply, check your RAM and make sure it is dust free. Cleaning of system is recommended. Or there is case that you might need to reinstall your windows if nothing helps.

Starlogic 20 inch widescreen monitor screen keeps going black


This is probably a back light problem. Take a bright flashlight and while the monitor is on, point it at the LCD and try different angles, etc. If you can see an image, it is the back light, probably the back light voltage converter unit in the lcd. It could also be the back light bulbs.

If you don't see an image with the flash light, then it could be the main logic board.

It looks like your power supply is shutting down (terminal overload shutdown) due to excessive current consumption. You need to get a power supply that meets the voltage and current requirements of that monitor or greater current reuirements.
