Stuck in "sleep mode"

I recently unhooked my entire PC. When putting everything back together I started to have a problem with my monitor. The monitor seems to be getting power but says "monitor going to sleep" and then shuts itself off. Did I hook something up wrong?

Re: Stuck in "sleep mode"

A possible fix would be to go into the bios and select "standard settings" or something close to that statement,then re-boot the system
hope this will help

good luck

The monitor starts up and goes into sleep mode

After repairing the on/off button for $100.00 and then rehooking up the monitor to my pc, the monitor has power but stays asleep even when I push in the menu button, I can't get anything to happen. HP techs tell me that the problem is with my computer although it worked perfectly fine before I unhooked all to send out the monitor.

I hooked all back up again as before but now the monitor will only say "monitor going to sleep" and nothing happens.

Wishing I had a solution. Thanks

We need to narrow down to find out if it is your PC is not sending the video signal to the monitor or the monitor itself is bad, you need to try this monitor with another PC or try this PC with another monitor.

HP w2207 monitor keeps "going to sleep" then it will not come back on and says no input signal.

most times this is indicator of a video card problem, most times you try booting in to vga mode and see does it go to sleep. if it does not go to sleap you video driver is bad and needs to be reinstalled. if it does go to sleep it is usually video card issue. to boot in to vga mode turn ur pc off and once u press on to put it back on start pressing button F8 and advanced menu will come up and you have to choose boot in to vga mode. if this does not work same way go to safe mode with networking and reinstall video driver by going in to device manager.

Monitor is in sleep mode and I here a beep periodically

Try change the keyboard, if the pc does not detect the keyboard or a key from the key board is stuck which gives something like tic tic sound. On the other hand the display from monitor "sleeping mode" indicates the VGA cord is faulty or monitor is no compatible to the PC's video card.

Acer AL1917 Monitor does not start up immediately.

You'll need to have your power board -inverter redone.
The capacitors are starting to fail and that eventually will stop it all together.
I repair many monitors through ebay with these types of problems.
If you take it apart and send me a picture, I can usually see the problem areas.

My desktop pc has gone into power save mode

Turn the whole pc off then back on. If the LCD stays in power save then I would try a diffrent monitor on the PC. If that fixes it the the monitor is probably stuck in power save. Check for parts and instructions.

Going to Sleep

Due to the power surge, it is highly possible that the monitor was given a boot by your computer on it's way out.

This will short out a very small transistor inside the monitor on the video board and in turn, then monitor cannot see that there is a signal so goes to sleep.

If you get brave enough to venture inside the screen, then check near the cable input. The transistors are only around 3mm and have 3 legs (two one side and one in the middle on the other).

If you find anything like that burnt (get a magnifying glass) then replacing the board is the easiest option. Just don't be tempted to wipe the board before you look at everything very closely, you may wipe away the tiny bit of evidence you are looking for.

Hope it helps =)
