Question about Computers & Internet
I have a computer that has been sitting for about a year (it was working fine when put in the closet) I am now trying to hook it up for my daughter and when i turn it on (it sounds like all is working fans, power, ect) it put the monitor into sleep mode. I have tried two different monitors and it does it to both.... I have tried turning it on and then doing the safe mode thing but the monitor screen is black so i can see anything to see if it is working...... HELP PLEASE ....
Go to safe mode,select boot in vga mode.
If this allows you to start,
Click start,Run type desk.cpl
Screen Saver tab | click on Energy
Under desk or office settings frame, set all values to "never".
Advanced Options, you'll see a frame asking you what to do.
Just select the options to turn off sleep mode.
check that out.
If you can't start this way,you need to try another monitor to change the setting above.
Please rate this a fixya
