SOURCE: monitor wont stay on- blue light is on. but screen keeps going blank.

Have you tried the monitor on another computer? If so, and it works, the issue is with your graphics settings on your computer. LCD and plasma based monitors often come with a protection circuit that disables the monitor if the synch or refresh rate are beyond it's capabilities. this is to protect your monitor from damage.

Do not exceed your monitor's max resolution.
Resolution is determined the following way:

Width x Height @ Refresh Rate
For your model:

  • Max Resolution 1440 x 900 @ 75Hz
More detailed information about your monitor can be found HERE. If your monitor is still under warranty, and you find it to be faulty, you may be able to send it to the manufacturer for repairs.

SOURCE: Screen keeps going black

you may need to change the video output to output 1 in your pcs monitor settings - if you have 2 outputs from pc, swap cable over and select identify monitor. the default for the monitor should be 1( a huge 1 over the display appears)

SOURCE: Acer V223W monitor goes to sleep and doesn't awake

Go To Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. Select "restore my computer to an earlier date". Look at the LIST of Restore points. Find the DATE when this "Security Update" was installed and Select the last date before it was installed and Follow the "Wizard" to Restore it to BEFORE the Update you think CHanged Things. Too many variables to figure out without seeing it to determine what was changed but that will correct the situation and you will not loose anything.

SOURCE: power on and monitor goes to sleep mode

You need to try it on another PC, alos verify if the VGA cable is good. If nothing change, then you need to open it up, first thing to look for are the capacitors in the power supply. Look for cpas with bulging top/seal, see example of failed monitors here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you find so we can guide you further.

My monitor keeps going to sleep it will not stay on for a minute. I was wondering how can I factory reset my Windows hp w1907 thank you


It's not the monitor. Right click in an open area of your home page once the device is done booting up. Look for something that says something like preferences or customize in the box that opens up. You didn't say your operating system so going to do some fishing. look under screen saver or sleep settings. Increase the time until it goes to sleep and your problem should be solved. Good luck.

My monitor won't come out of sleep mode


when the computer enter the sleep mode, it is possible that the computer remove the check mark from this output activation.

When you have multiple ouptut like a internal LCD and output on a monitor, when going into sleep then waked up, laptop reactivate the internal LCD without reactivated the secondary monitor.

you could need to go in desktop property and reactivate the secondary monitor with the check mark listed : Activate.

If you only have one monitor but still a dual output card or two separate video card same thing can happend. try to connect the monitor on the second VGA or HDMI output and see if the video goes there.

then reactivate your secondary output and make it principal.

Does also happend when your computer is connected to a UPS power and your monitor is directly on the sector. (laptop issu also)

if a brief power outage arrive then the monitor shut down (no power) and the computer continu, as there is no monitor on the output any more Windows will automatically deactivate this monitor. when power goes back, this output is no longuer providing video. I suggest putting the monitor on a UPS as well.

Keyboard and mouse not working and monitor going to sleep


HP Pavilion Slimline S3400f Desktop.
dont worry ALL PC end up like this,, all do.. sooner or later..
NO OS stated, XP"? never post without OS stated, or answer get 10x more harder, See? make it easy for the helper and get more help.....
no Monitor stated. (maker, CRT, LCD what?)
The monitor is not fibbing to you BTW, the PC did go dead or to sleep. seems its monitor monitor of some kind with DVI.

if the monitor works on other PCs then the monitor is not bad.
i Bet it works (old ones 2002, have a hidden deep internal sleep mode. and is not yours IM sure now) DVI IS THE ONLY CLUE THERE.
So PC is dead. this PC came with only VISTA new,
is it still VISTA?????????
HP has support on it still
here (carbon dated by me 2008, IIRC)
https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-pavilion-slimline-s3400-desktop-pc-series/3688715/model/3688723

this year,? get all those files and books there backed up
when HP support ends after 10 year rule, (be savvy?)


what keyboard USB or wireless keyboard mouse
use wired USB keyboards if wireless the battery is dead. easy no?

now in VISTA, go to Control panel, click power
turn off all sleep modes and all hibernate modes
the turn off screen savers, if turned on , disktop . RC right click
in display settings or personalize, turn off , need login to come out of sleep or screen saver.
try a real keyboard, that has USB cable yet? be first thing to do.
always keep a real keyboard, handy,,,
batteries fail. in all wireless devices like this (inside them)

luck you desktops have lies DIM fails. there are many.

http://www.pcdied.com/sleep-or-dim.html

one other way , and common is PC overheated.
all do that.
ever one not cleaned out every year,.

#1 all time cause of overheat and PC shuts down.

Why does my HP vs17 monitor screen keep going to blank black screen like it turned off but did'nt.....blue power button light is still on? Everything is running but no picture.....keeps happening everytime...


this old monitor has 2 issues.
1: it has CCFL tubes that love to burn out (backlamps)
most this old are long go, yell,dim.,blinking or DEAD.
2: push the menu button on front of mon. turn off power saver.

3: if the PC goes to sleep, or hibernete mode (parked)
then that is 100% normal
if you dont like feature then go to windows control panel
click power, ICON and turn off all monitor sleep /hibernate modes.

that assumes windows, no OS stated.


if the lamps are dead,
use flash light pointed to sceen, see data. ? bingo for bad CCFT tubes.
as seen here

I have a HP vs17 monitor that keeps going to sleep. It will flash to windows when I first start and immediately goes into sleep mode. When this first happened, I had managed to make sure any sleep modes,...


trixieb1, It's NOT going to sleep mode. Use warranty if possible!! If that not option you will need to read about "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" and the voltage inverters that power them. Learn to do flashlight test when screen goes to black or blank n black!!! Read my fixya profile and those of other ccfl back-lit lcd monitor technicians. We already know what is wrong with your unit. And It is a VERY big problem for all LCD monitor manufacturers. Just do some reading before you do anything else. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

Monitor says it is going to sleep and there is only a black screen.


Monitors go to sleep when there is no computer activity it detected. Also, when your OS is working and somehow you have set a "sleep" time, then the monitor goes to sleep at the appointed time. Just press ENTER or press the POWER BUTTON to bring it back to life without losing your computer work.

No DVi input, then computer goes to sleep


Hi publicworker,

I had a similar problem whereas my monitor went to sleep mode after a few minutes. I'm running an HP LP 2065 in dual mode with another HP flat screen. However, I did resolve the issue after resetting the output settings.

How to do that:
  • right mouse click on the desktop
  • select graphic options
  • output to
  • extended desktop
Maybe some changings/modification will help you too.
