Delay in Monitor display once the system goes in sleep mode
I purchased a new Gateway Model: LX6810-01 Desktop.
Sytem work fine except when it goes in sleep mode. It takes 2-10min for the monitor to display.
I set the sleep mode and motior power off. It works fine but again if I manually switch off the monitor and turn it on the delay in display persists.

Sleep mode on a Windows 7 PC saves power without you having to turn your computer off and without losing any work. This option cuts the power to your monitor, powers down the hard drive and pauses all functions until you awaken the computer from hibernation. Whether you have a laptop, desktop or workstation, putting your computer into sleep mode will lower your electric bill and save money! Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. In the lower right corner of the Start menu, next to the "Shut Down" button, is a button labeled with a small, right-pointing arrow. Mouse over the arrow. The Shut Down menu appears. Point at "Sleep" and click on this option. Your Windows 7 computer goes into sleep mode. Wake your computer from sleep mode by jiggling the mouse. There may be a delay of a few seconds before your hardware powers on. All of your open programs are still open and your work is intact, just as you left it before the computer entered sleep mode. Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security." Click "Power Options." A menu opens. Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode. If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity
Hi, The solution to fix the problem is by changing your power supply.
Just make sure that you replace it with a 500W or higher and not with
the same 300W which does not have enough power for this system, plus it
is defective. I have changed the power supply to 4 diferent gateway PCs
same model dx4300. And all 4 are working perfect. And run a check
disk on CMD to fix the disk errors that were created every time you
unplugged it and turned it on again.
yes, all monitors work directly with the cpu, the cpu sends message to the monitor, so if the system is in sleep mode, automatically the monitor stops work excepts the cpu comes up again then the monitor wakes, in a nutshell, a monitor is connected to power while in sleep mode but has no signal to function
It appears that the display resolution set in your display properties is out of the range that the LCD can display.
Boot to the ENABLE VGA MODE by pressing F8 to get the Windows Boot Menu. If you can get to the desktop, then go to display properties, and see if you can change the resolution to higher settings and maintain video. (If the video blanks out, then it should revert to the previous setting in 15 seconds)
Elbtax, Click start > right click on "My Computer" > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager button > Display adapters > Right click on your device and select uninstall and re boot your computer. Windows should pick up your adapter and re configure it automatically. This method should Fixya! Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
