My monitor turns itself on and off with no prompting

I have an IBM P96 model monitor. Every few minutes, it will rapidly turn itself on and off. i have tried resetting the refresh rate to different levels, but it still does the same thing. It seems to be happening when I leave my mouse idle for around 15 to 20 seconds. This is highly irritating and I really don't want to have to buy a new monitor. Any ideas as to what this is?

Go into the control panel and check the system settings. You might have it set to turn the monitor off after a low number of seconds of use. If you have it set for 30 seconds, if you don't use the keyboard or mouse for 30 seconds, the monitor will shut off. When you start to use it again, it will come back on.

System unit or power supply?


The computer power supply may have failed. Do you get the "post beep"?

If not- remove the BIOS battery, move the jumper to "Clear BIOS" . Insert BIOS battery, and try to boot. Put jumper back to normal position and try boot again. If you do not get the post beep, swap power supply for a known good one, and try boot again. If it still does not boot and give you a post beep, look to see if there is a removable BIOS chip- pop it out and put it back in.place, this will clean the terminals. Go through and reset BIOS, as above, and try boot. If the system is functional, it should now boot up, but prompt for you to run the setup program.

If it does not boot, the problem is relating to motherboard/processor.

While cleaning my step-mother turned her monitor off and cant figure out how to turn it back on


Most monitors have very small switches either on the lower front frame (below the screen), on the right side frame, or in a few cases at the bottom of the frame (cant be seen from the front, unless you duck under it). Hit every one of the buttons in sequence, like 10 seconds apart, to give the monitor a chance to warm up and start. Evidently, stop hitting on buttons when the monitor lights up. Do not worry about hitting the wrong buttons, since they will not accept any commands while the monitor is turned off.

I have allowed the battery to discharge for about a month. Now upon attaching the power recgarging cable in the home DC wall current, the battery clicks rapidly and repetitively during charging. Is this...


If it is the charger that is clicking, it is probably ok, as your battery may have gone into "deep discharge" state, it will take now a long time (probably 12 hours or so) and a few cycles of charge/discharge for it to reach some operational capacity again. It is also possible that it won't return from deep discharge state. Either way, keep an eye on it. If it gets cautiously hot, unplug immediately.

Whom ever told you too: "Unplug the cpu while holding down the power button".

Is telling you something that can "seriously damage" your cpu and computer.

Or did you mean "PSU" if so there is a particular format to do a Power supply check.
For the proper way use this link: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph06788&lc=en&cc=us&product=405227&dlc=en&lang=en#N207

Also many other things can cause the problems your having. Could be your motherboard too.

If this does not work, post again be sure to include HP Pavillion Model number and Operating System (i.e. XP, 7 or Vista) that way we can help pin point your system needs. Also have you done any internal repairs lately? Recheck all your connections too.

If you find this helpful please vote.

My monitor go to "standby" and i can't get it on again for a few minutes if i change resolution (starting an old game) or restarting my monitor. In the "standby mode" the light is yellow, but blinking.


this is because the game is changing the resolution and frequency of the video card to make it compatible with the software the game uses to run. The easiest way around this is to attach a different monitor long enough to change the settings within the game after it loads up. Find a configuration that works when u switch to the other monitor and you will be good to go. Dont worry, ive had this problem before too and there is nothing wrong with your monitor. an easy way is to go to the display options in windows and view the current resolution and frequency and try to match those with the game, but i can be sure from the nature of this question that you have your resolution set too high for the card to automatically render the video, your gonna have to cut way back to your lowest resolution and it should at least start up long enough to make adjustments and these adjustments will be permanent until you personally revert the setting. Good Luck And Please Rate This Post!!!!!

HP Pavillion won't turn on.


Hmm, did the CA damage any part of it? Sounds silly I know.
And is the power in the, Optical Disk Drive, HDD, Graphics Card and of course on the Motherboard?
Keep it on for about 40 minutes monitoring the heat ever so often even though there is nothing on the Monitor.
By the 40 Minutes it should be mid temp - Hot.
Best of Luck. Tom.

Aspire 7520 will not power up ,the power light is blincking rapidly


A few things to try. Take out the battery and only hook up the ac adapter, if that doesn't work, then go ahead and try another known good working ac adapter cause it could be its not getting all the right voltages since the power light is blinking rapidly.

If those things don't work. Go ahead and take out the memory and resesat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time turning on the laptop after each stick reinsertion to see if the video comes back. Could be that a memory stick is bad or a slot is bad.

Also if you have another known good working memory stick then try it in each slot as well just to make sure that both wouldn't have gone bad on you.

The last two things to try would be taking out the hard drive and also taking out the dvd drive. After each of all the steps im telling you to try make sure the power is off and then turn it on with each step.

At that point if you still can't get video then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
