    Have you tried connecting a external monitor to it. If it works its a problem with the LCD Cable or LCD. Also can you let me know are you getting the Dell logo when you start the laptop?

When the system is going back into sleep mode what color is the power button flashing. It should like the system my not be going into sleep mode but have a more serious problem.

Also let me know what you see on the screen as you turn on the system.

Another thing to try is after you unplug the system hold down the power button for 30 to 45 seconds. This will reset the power state of the system. Note if you have the system plugged into a power strip you will want to reset the power strip too.

Inspiron 1525 pisses me the ********


This is a problem with the BIOS of your laptop. You can do a BIOS upgrade by downloading the updated BIOS from the laptop manufacturer's website. If you close the lid and your laptop goes to sleep mode, your downloads will be halted since you system will go on to power savings-mode (most nics are disabled during this mode). What you can do is let your laptop sit during downloads but change the power savings mode to always on (RC on desktop>properties>screensaver>power>power scheme is always on).

The video goes to sleep.. and I can only get it back by powering down and back again.,.,..what a pain..???


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.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Computer screen goes straight to desktop image, but thats it.


go to control panel-->power options---->advanced. Here "when I press the power button" should be set to "shut down". Same with the "sleep button".

Now go to hibernate. Here uncheck the box under hibernation.
Press apply then ok. I hope your problem will be solved.

Dell XPS420 Freezes after being in sleep mode


Is there a reason why you cant turn off sleep mode and just let the screen saver kick in? You can do this by right clicking on your desktop and goto properties. Then ScreenSaver, then click on power.
Change these values to never and then go back and set your screen saver...

Hope this Helps...

Sleep problem


I've seen this on many Dell machines, and I've found no real fix for this. It seems that this function either works or it doesn't. You can do a restore back to a point that you remember it working properly, but eventually it will start doing it again. I've decided that this is a glitch with Dell's systems. You can also do a bios update from Dell's support site, sometimes this helps with the little glitch they pick up.

Screen distortion when coming back from idle/sleep mode


This could be an issue with your Video drivers. I would try and Download the newest drivers for my system and see if that helps the problem

Dell E178FPf LCD monitor goes to standby and won`t come on again


Check your Power options in Windows.

right click on the desktop. select properties, Gop to the screen saver tab, click on the power button at the bottom right and check to see if its set to turn off or standby the monitor, turn this off.

Keep the screen saver on and set it for like ten minutes.

Also, on the monitor itself, it may have a sleep or power save option set as the default. check all the monitor settings on the actual moniotr itself.
