    Is it like the monitor is not receiving signal from the CPU? Does CPU fan works?

I also would say clean your memory card and the video card if it is a plug in type its edge connector both side with a clean soft eraser. Do this when you unplugged the CPU unit in wall socket or UPS(no power absolutely). This is the first step before going to anything.

So leave a comment if it doesn't help.

Hi there.
GRB means the 3 primary colours and just means the monitor is working and able to receive a signal.
I think in your case it could be related to memory. Remove any new hardware if any and any external devices like printers etc.
Now remove the power cord from the back and remove or open the side panel from the tower so you can get to the motherboard, remove the ram (memory) from the slots and clean the dust from both the memory modules and the memory slots, when they are free of dust just put one module back at a time and restart the PC (if you have more than one)
If it boots up the problem would have been dust, if it doesn't start up at all it well be faulty memory.
Please post back if you need more help or advice.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Monitor going to sleep problem


  • Hi, The Monitor as well the Computer have "Power Saving Modes," [Sleep, ScreenSavers, and Hibernation]; so what you want to do is "Change the way the Computer / Monitor Sleeps!" From the Desktop Screen, click on the "Start Button," next in the [Start Search Window], type: power. In the next [window] that opens, you should see, from your point of view; a "list" in the (left column) "Change when the computer sleep, 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." 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. If this solution to the problem was of help? Let me know by giving a "Helpful Rating", thanks, and have a "Great Memorial Day!"

My hp2009m monitor goes into sleep mode


Monitors are programmed to go to sleep when there is no input. If you shut it down on the other "tower" also it will do the same. You need to physically hit the power button on the monitor to actually shut it off.

Monitor goes into Sleep Mode immediatly upon turning on computer


Ok. I think "sleep mode" means that your monitor might not have a tight connection. Tighten all connections. Also, push the power button on your tower. When you gegt back, go to screensaver- power settings- and from there you can adjust.

although it hasn't worked for me because my screen stays black, one of the options given to me is to try to start in safe mode and then adjust your settings to "never" on the energy/sleep/hibernate mode

some one else suggested that i remove and reseat the video card

hopefully one of those will work for you

Monitor goes into sleep mode after a few seconds


This is normaly cause by incorrect power management settings.

check power management setting in both windows and your computers bios

you will not need to worry about the power management settings of the bios when an operating system such as windows is loaded.
