Does it go off while your on it or just while your away from it. Because if your away from it you might ahave a power save timer on it

Hmmm, sleep/suspend mode is only supposed to happen when it doesn't sense any movement from the mouse, it also shouldn't suspend if you are in full-screen either. So if you are playing a game that shouldn't happen at all... as a test you should put the "turn off the display" to "never" and see if it still happens.
I have this happen when watching Netflix, if I don't move the mouse my TV will go into suspend mode, even though I am in full screen... I think my issue however is related to the fact that I am using HDMI to connect to my TV from my computer... I have not solved this issue yet!

Monitor work well on starting, but entering into any games, its turn black and the power light is on. Computer has nothing problems with other monitors.


The games try to start a display mode (resolution) with which the monitor is not compatible. Some monitors are very tolerant and try to display whatever they are hit with, even if the picture is poor, at least you have an option to change the resolution to a different one. Some however are very picky and just go into standby if they are fed with signal that's not optimum.

You have to find out which display modes your monitor does support and then try and configure the games to use one of those supported resolutions. If you can borrow a more tolerant monitor you could attach it temporarily, open each game and adjust the configuration to satisfy your whimsical monitor, and then reconnect it.

Please come back and leave a rating/testimonial if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

"Not Optimum Mode","Recommanded Mode 1280


FIXED : Before you start your legacy game, software where the "Recommanded Mode 1280 x 1024 60Hz" keeps showing, change your display FROM VIDEO CARD DISPLAY control application to 1024x768 or your choice.

My Syncmaster 2233 had same problem of "Not optimum mode" box coming on whenever I started any old game like Age of Empires etc. It got fixed by selecting FROM DISPLAY CARD DRIVER CONTROL UTILITY's (mine from Catalyst Control Center) >Set desktop area to > 1024 x 768 in my case BEFORE STARTING old application/game. Switch back to your normal resolution after you are done with this application.

Hope this helps.

I have problem in my lg lcd monitor when start computer windows loading then il say out of range 53.5Hz/85Hz. i don't know how to solve that problem.


Sounds like the resolution is set to high which is why that message would come up. When you turn on your computer, keep pressing the F8 button. It will bring you to a menu. Choose "Safe Mode" and press enter. When you get into windows go into the display settings in the control panel. Then go ahead and set the resolution to 640X480. After you do that go ahead and restart the computer and let it boot up normally. That message should go away and once you get back into windows you'll have icons that look bigger then normal. At that point change the resolution to 800X600, if it takes that then try 1024X768 if you want to.

If after you are in safe mode and change the resolution and that error message comes up then you'll need to download the video drivers for your computer and reinstall them.

My computer monitor just has a window open that says ( D-SUB out of range 53.6khz/85hz) how can I fix this ?


1. Turn off your computer (you can do this by holding down the power button).
2. Making sure the monitor cable is plugged into the computer, turn the computer back on.
3. If there is something other than the error message on screen, begin tapping the F8 key on the keyboard as soon as the computer turns on. 3b. If nothing (other than the error) is shown on the screen after restarting, you must obtain another monitor and follow these steps from the beginning on that screen.
4. After less than a minute, you should get a menu like this

5. Select "Safe Mode" 7. Once at the Windows desktop, right click on the background, and select properties.

8. Select the "Settings" tab, and move the resolution slider all the way to the left.

9. Restart normally, and once in regular Windows, repeat steps 7 and 8, selecting the resolution of your choice.

Hi can someone help cause every time i play a game in my computer and if im in a middle of the game the monitor just goes off but i can still hear the game running why is that happening? plzzz help me...


Hello ergic,
the "Monitor" as well the Computer have "Power Saving Modes."
  • Sleep /Awake
  • ScreenSavers
  • Hibernation...

"You want to do the following!"

"Change the way the Computer / Monitor Sleeps!"

  • From the Desktop Screen.
  • Click on the "Start Button." paul7of9_126.jpg
  • Just [below], "All Programs" you'll see:
  • The [Start Search] window; type: power.
  • "In the next [window] that opens!"
  • Scroll to find the {Power Options} icon! paul7of9_127.jpg
  • Click on the "Power Option" shortcut
  • "You should see: from your point of view; a "list" in the (left column) .
  • "Change when the computer sleep," paul7of9_131.jpg
  • "The wording may be different, but it will be clear enough."
  • Now all you have to do is change the way the Computer and Monitor "Sleep, or Turn-off." paul7of9_128.jpg
  • If the Monitor have its own "settings;" just find them by the [button on the monitor], and do the 'same thing as above'; but I'm sure the computer will take care of both.
"Please let me know if you 'need' further assistance, or the 'solution' helped? "By posting a 'Comment" or 'Rating' the solution. Thank you; your 'response' is important to me!"

My name is amit a class 12th student today while i was playing a game my pc suddenly turned off & when i am trying to restart it a beep sound is coming and my pc does not starts. my system cofigration is...


hai amit, i understand ur problem.............

 whenever u get an beep sound from ur system and ur monitor goes blank or completely black, it surely problem with ur RAM.

so to just ensure it is problem with RAM(certainly), try removing and replacing ur RAM on the motherboard and verify whether ur still getting the same beep sound, if yes surely:

you have to buy a new RAM(ddr2) or if you have additional RAM or spare RAM from ur friends, relative try keeping on the motherboard(to make sure that problem is with ur RAM before buying a new one...)

Thanking you
