My monitor was on sleep mode (orange light) so i pressed spacebar to awake it. However, it just went blank on me and i couldn't turn it on since. the indicator light doesn't light up at all. i tried another power cable but it still doesn't work. I'm guessing it's an internal problem with the screen but i don't exactly know what the problem is. How do i go about fixing it? Thanks!

Re: Can't switch on monitor screen
Please try to connect the monitor to another PC, and it continues to happen when connected to another PC, then the hardware (internal electronic parts) is having trouble powering up the panel / ccds and it should be replaced / serviced according to the terms of the warranty. regards

Try a different monitor, check the connections to the pc. When the monitor light changes to orange, press the spacebar to see if the light changes back to blue. Your pc power settings might need to be re-adjusted, is the pc going to sleep or hibernating too soon?
Sounds like your keyboard is sending the wrong signal (the one telling your PC to enter sleep mode) to your motherboard when you press space key, which (if true) would indicate it's faulty. It could also be you've contracted a virus and is playing a particularly nasty practical joke on you (let's hope that's all it does). Try connecting another keyboard to your PC and see if that helps. If it doesn't, then you'll need to clean your computer of any viruses. Try also disconnecting your mouse and see if that changes anything. If your keyboard comes with a shortcut utility software for it, run it and check there's no shortcut set on your keyboard's space bar. You've additionally specified you're not using wireless keyboard, but could you also please write what OS you're on?
Sounds like there could be a short in your video cable. I had this problem occur where i would boot up my pc and after about 5 seconds the screen would go blank. Also give your monitor a reset manually after starting up your box. Just unplug the power cable to it for about 10 secs and see if that helps. Good Luck
You must go into the BIOS of you computer and turn off the sleep mode and also in windows. Disconnect the monitor and power it on without hooking it up to the computer. If the monitor turn on and is working , then hook it up to the computer and try with with the sleep controls off to see if it works correctly.If this works you must check the owners manuals of the motherboard and monitor for the correct operation of the sleep mode functions.Then reinstall the sleep mode operation and see if everything works correctly. If the monitor fails to work. Try the monitor on another computer and see if it will function. If all this fails to get the monitor working , then you will need to have the monitor tested in a service center to find the problem and have it repaired. You should also check your computer on another monitor just to maker sure you don not have a problem with the computer too. Hope this helps you with your problem.
