    check the plug on the monitor and check the other side where you plug the monitor into the computer. It sounds like your monitor cannot detect any signal. If the plug is ok then try to hook up a different monitor.
    Do you have a video card in the computer or is it built in the motherboard?
    If you have a video card and there is no display on another monitor you will have to look into getting a video card for the computer. It is not that un-common for video adaptors to go out but that is when it is nice to have a desktop computer. You can normally just put another one in.

    Should have asked this first but what provoked this probelem?

Emachine ET1161-05 desktop...monitor keeps going to sleep...comes back on only if i move the mouse...very annoying, i don't want my monitor to ever go into sleep mode...pls help


This may be something that Windows (or the computer is telling Windows) to do. Everyone wants to reduce the power consumption in the computer, so be default your monitor may be going into 'sleep' mode and turning off.
1) To change this, RIGHT click on the Windows desktop. 2) When the menu appears, select PROPERTIES, then select the SCREEN SAVER tab. 3) There are 2 things to check here. First at the top, make sure that your screen saver is selecting something beside BLANK. This will cause the monitor to blank out and appear to have turned off. 4) The second thing to check is the POWER settings. Click the POWER button at the bottom on the screen. 5) Now, you will see 2 rows of power options, one for when the computer is plugged in (which is all the time with your desktop) and the other is when on batteries. We're concerned with the PLUGGED IN settings. 6) Make sure the TURN OFF MONITOR setting is set for NEVER. This will ensure that your monitor never turns off on you. 7) Now click OK and OK and now your monitor shouldn't turn off on you.
Hope this response helps you out.
Best of luck!

Sleep mode is turning off the monitor how do i disable itjdelaile@


Well in most system the sleep mode can be found in the power options...
generally you can go to your battery icon in the bottom right and right click on it and go to power options if its a desktop computer or laptop just goto Control Panel and then to power options, in the power options it will have Change plan setting.. depending on the windows you are running it may take you directly to the changing of this options, but once you get into the plan setting you will see all you need to and change the monitor from sleeping to never...
hope this issue is resolved...

Monitor goes into Sleep Mode immediatly upon turning on computer


Ok. I think "sleep mode" means that your monitor might not have a tight connection. Tighten all connections. Also, push the power button on your tower. When you gegt back, go to screensaver- power settings- and from there you can adjust.

Hi there.
Go to the control panel, select power options and set the computer to never go to sleep, all the options and quick links are down the left hand side in Vista.
