Question about Compaq FS7600 17" Flat Glass Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor keeps stating "monitor going to sleep" now awhile after booting up. The monitor works fine with other computers and the computer in questioning when in safe mode - yet if tried to boot normally, the monitor says going to sleep. Recently, I used that monitor to work on another PC but didn't touch the now affected one - but after plugging it back into the old one.. this is the issue

    What kind of video card do you have. You probably need to install the drivers for it whilst on safe mode.

This is probably a video setting issue. In Safe Mode, Windows starts with low resolution and color settings, so the monitor can display them. But when it tries to start normally, Windows is using a video setting the monitor can't handle.

Start the computer and press the F8 key three or four times when the manufacturer's logo screen appears. This should get you to the Windows startup menu screen, and you can pick the option of starting in VGA mode. This will start Windows with video settings any monitor can handle.

Once you have Windows up and running, make sure the video card and monitor types are properly set up. It would also be a good idea to download and install the latest drivers for your video card. You can usually find them at the manufacturer's website.

Looking for drivers to use this monitor with Fedora 20 Linux OS


You don't need drivers. You need to adjust the resolution and refresh rate. If you plug in an old CRT monitor then Linux will probably boot and you can edit the conf file to change the settings. Most LCD monitors require 50-60Hz refresh rate.

First of all, boot your system without the monitor connected to it and when you feel that it's booted upto logon screen (or if you haven't assign password it'll directly logon to the desktop, power on the speaker to make sure you can know it's done) connect the monitor. If this isn't successful, please turn off the system and remove the cmos battery, leave it outside for few minutes and again reinstall it. Boot again normally. Still having the same problem? then let's try another method. Did you see the bios loading (black screen with white text during startup) when you power on the system? If so, press F8 several times while it is booting and select "Safe Mode" and restore your system to previous state. Do let me know if this isn't possible. Good luck Thanks for using FixYa.

The problem you are encountering is not your monitor but your computer. There is a problem with your CPU unit. To know this info in true then try this.,remove the connections of the monitor from your own computer then use the monitor to the other computer and see. Hope this could help you determine the real problem.

Monitor going right to sleep mode on start up


Sounds like a bad graphics card. Try using monitor wit another computer and see if the problem still exists. This rules out the display.

Going to Sleep


Due to the power surge, it is highly possible that the monitor was given a boot by your computer on it's way out.

This will short out a very small transistor inside the monitor on the video board and in turn, then monitor cannot see that there is a signal so goes to sleep.

If you get brave enough to venture inside the screen, then check near the cable input. The transistors are only around 3mm and have 3 legs (two one side and one in the middle on the other).

If you find anything like that burnt (get a magnifying glass) then replacing the board is the easiest option. Just don't be tempted to wipe the board before you look at everything very closely, you may wipe away the tiny bit of evidence you are looking for.

Hope it helps =)
