Pavilion p7-1148 PC with HP2301 monitor goes to sleep during boot up

hello anon..
why not test the monitor on another PC to prove which box is bad
the mon or Pc.
simple no?
NO OS stated. be nice to know which of 20 OS it is. Windows something is my wild guess. but there are so many, now.

the monitor will always tell you no sig ,
one PC first. this gets the VGA chip alive first. with all sigs
then turn on the Monitor ,if those sigs are missing the monitor always tells you they are, and will not lie to you.
that monitor is newer. not relic, and new monitors never do self sleep like in year 2002. there is no internal sleep on your monitor
it only sleeps on DEMAND, from PC VGA card (lets to VGA ok>?)
simple is easier to troubleshoot.
the 2 sync lines do the sleep mode per VESA spec.

I bet the monitor tests prefectly on any other PC.
I bet.
so lets go from that fact, and work the PC end. make sense?
ok so the VGA chip is BAD.
right, but what can make it bad even when not BAD really.
answer lots, but wait , ive no idea at all what you have.
p7-1148 PC is a desktop

and many desktops , vast, have 2 video chips
one on the MOBO and one in the PCI slot.
i cant see your Desktop rear so must go wild guessing now.
the first thing i do with any older PC is clean all that lint out.
after all if the VGA chip overheats or CPU they shut down.
all do. every one. made does that overheated.

HP has full support page on this nice PC. Decktops are my joy.

im reading your product spec, now. online at hp
it tells me this PC comes with many options video cards etc.
so Ill not guess now. that. (I open the case and look is what I do)
it has option HDMI card there, ? does yours?>

here is your graphic page

Integrated video is not available if a graphics card is installed.
  • Radeon HD 6370D, 6410D, 6530D or 6550D Graphics (model dependent based on processor)
  • Supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards
  • Two DVI-D ports (Both ports can be used at the same time)
the above means, that you are using ON BOARD VGA or
the VGA Card.
which is it , the one you use is failing.
if a card remove it and use the OTHER VGA JACK (onboard)
test that.

so open the case per online manual.
see 2 fans, make them clean,
make heat sinks lint free.
now that it has Fresh air we see if the PSU works.
if the PSU is ok,
diagnosis is serial process, i check the coin cell on each i touch.
after lint removed. 2.9vdc min, new is 3.3vdc.
then i gander at that PCI video card, is the aux power jack fell off?
black yellow wire set, if present , all fast cards have that.
then the video card GPU chip see that, see if the heat sink on it is clean? and i fitted with a fan does said fan work?
like that.
beyond that , is more test, ill stop here, most here fear opening case.
see upgrading guide here, for access to pc,

Monitor goes into sleep mode at random

Check your power options in your control panel - default is usually 20 minutes to put monitor to sleep - you can adjust the time there. The monitor itself does not usually have this as a function so I would start there first.

It shows that the monitor is going to the power saver mode.It is not a problem of the monitor.This happens when there are no signals received on the monitor.It turns back to the normal mode when a signal is received on it.

Hp f2105 monitor goes immediately to sleep mode

Sounds like your monitor is not processing the resolution signal from the graphics card. Reboot the computer in "safe mode with networking", from there you can play around with the resolution, start low resolution and work your way up to test the monitor.

if the monitor fails on 2 PC, the monitor is bad ! ok, do that...
push the monitor menu buttton, connected to a running PC.
if the OSD is dead, , (on screen display , menu button front of monitor)
that means the monitor is dead, CCFL tubes are bad.
cold cathod florescient laml tubes all day this old.
the menu button can be in lock mode, hold the button for 10 seconds, and it unlocks
then go in the OSD screens if they work,. and turn off the sleep timer.
this timer is marked in the OSD as power saver,. turn it off.
it is a time clocked feature, and a pain to use on modern PC.
your PC does sleep modes today and never us this timer,inside monitor (default is on, turn it off)
all that is on page32 in your manual,

Sounds like your video card is failing. If the video is internal to the motherboard, get a video card and add it to the motherboard if there is an open video slot available

Monitor stays asleep

Check in the BIOS and see what your monitor settings are.
Did you change the sleep mode or power off mode? What do you do to make it come back on? Sounds like it might be getting too hot and/or going bad. Try it on another machine and see what it does. Also try another video card because the video card could be going bad.
