The monitor just wouldn't turn on from the sleep mode.....

My monitor seems to be ravelling with an unsual problem right after the item was plugged in to use for the first time. The monitor just simply stays on the sleep mode, regardless of the CPU being on.I cannot view anything. All I can see on the screen is "MONITOR GOING TO SLEEP". WHat seems to be the problem? Its a brand new monitor..

Re: the monitor just wouldn't turn on from the sleep...

To amplify ~1 The basic computer motherboard has 'On board Graphics'- that is a graphics ability built into the system This is the 3x5 pin blue socket grouped with the USB PS2 and other sockets in a common panel under the Power Inlet. If the machine has an additional Graphics card this will be the same 3x5 socket duplicated here with a another socket. So try both. You could also check the BIOS settings Bios setting are achieved by pressing delete[ or another key - this will be shown which in the start screen] on the computer as soon as you switch on, where by a crude blue/yellow screen will come up. But you will need the hand book to hand to delve further, Rest assure I do not think it is a Monitor problem- but lack of signal from the computer.

Re: the monitor just wouldn't turn on from the sleep...

A little more info pleas. The single most common cause of this particular problem is the monitor being plugged in to an inactive VGA socket. Most manufacturers build several models of computer based on the same base components, you will often find that your computer has both a reasonably powerful graphics card plugged in to a socket on the motherboard and a less powerful, basic graphics chip built in to the motherboard that is disabled. The reason for this is that the base model of your computer is only supplied with the basic graphics chip but if you paid for a more powerful model a more powerful graphics card was supplied that disables the basic chip. have a look at the back of your computer (the box you described as the CPU) and see if you have 2 blue sockets with 3 rows of pinholes in them, if you do your monitor needs to be plugged in to the one that is higher up and sitting horizontally. If not message back.

Here is artical I found on how to disable sleep mode on a monitor, this would be for VISTA or 7, if you are using XP it's a bit different. ____________________________________________________________ How to Disable Sleep Mode on a Monitor

Your computer monitor or laptop screen will enter sleep mode after your computer remains idle for a set period of time. You can disable sleep mode if you prefer the screen to remain illuminated. You merely need to change a setting in the Windows Power Management properties box.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions

  1. Click "Start" and "Control Panel".

  2. Click "System and Security" and "Power Options". This will bring up a new dialog box.

  3. Click the menus to the right of "Turn off the Display" and set them both to "Never". This will disable sleep mode.

HP monitor going into sleep mode right after turning it on

If it goes in to sleep mode, that means that the monitor is not getting a signal from the computer.
The things to try (from simplest to most complex) are:

  1. Make sure the computer is on and not in "sleep" mode -- press the "Caps Lock" key and see if it lights up the caps-lock light on the keyboard.
  2. Make sure the video cable is connected from the computer to the monitor (that the cable hasn't come loose on either end)
  3. If your monitor has multiple inputs, make sure it's set to the right (probably analog VGA or DVI) input
  4. If your computer has more than one video output (like a laptop with it's internal screen plus the external monitor) then make sure the external monitor is enabled
If none of those solve it, post a comment back here and we can dive in to the more complex tests

Monitor keeps going into sleep mode and it won't turn on so i can use it.

Monitors go to SLEEP mode when there is no computer signal coming into them. As soon as a computer signal reaches the monitor, it will automatically wake up and show the images in the screen.

Monitor goes into sleep mode as I'm working on it. How do I shut off/

How do you shut off sleep mode? I take it you're using Vista, as XP has "standby:" mode rather than sleep. You first right-click the desktop, then click "personalize." from there, click on "screen saver," and then "change power settings." from there, look on the left hand side of the window and choose the option you want to change. Probably, you'll want to "choose when to turn off the display." Hope this helps,

Sleep mode

There is an On Display Menu (ODM). You can access it by pushing the button located on the monitor. Use +- buttons to navigate in the menu. Here you can switch off the sleep mode or change the sleep settings. I have a simular problem... I try to turn off the power save function but it seems like it dosen´t want to understand this...
