Question about HP Pavilion Slimline S3123W Desktop PC - REFURBISHED
It turns on but i don't see anything on the screen and message comes up on the monitor saying ''going to sleep'' and no post. the monitor is not on vga mode it's on the other one.
I believe this model only comes with Vista. Go to Control Panel, and on the left hand side click Classic View then click the icon for Power Options.
There will be a few options under Preferred Plans and one is selected (Filled in dot)
Under the Power Plan that is selected, click Change Plan Settings and on the next screen, click Change Advanced Power Settings.
You will have a new window that opens up with a bunch of categories with little boxes with + signs. Click the + Sign box beside sleep to open op the menu. In the options under sleep, change HYBRID sleep and HIBERNATE to NEVER. Especially the Hybrid sleep as this was a problem I found with Vista. It sounds like the computer is going into the Hybrid/Hibernation and not comping out from it unless you power off the computer and turn it back on
Also, click the + sign beside Hard Disk and make sure the option to "Turn off Hard Disks After" is also set to NEVER
