Monitor falls asleep during/after startup

I have an HPa6700y I purchased about three months ago. At the time of purchase I installed a high-end graphics card myself (ASUS EAH4870 DK/1G Radeon HD) and it had been running beautifully until now. I have used it for gaming as recently as yesterday morning.

Last night I installed a new game and was looking for a headphone jack somewhere on the main unit--not sure if I accidentally jostled something in the CPU or not, but seconds later my monitor (an HPw1901) went to sleep while trying to start a new game. When I restarted the monitor it displayed the input status for VGA as ''no input signal'' and ''monitor is going to sleep.'' I tried re-booting and running a start-up diagnostic but the monitor fell asleep again about 3 minutes into the diagnostic.

I swapped VGA for DVI to see if it was the cable, but had the same problem, and soon it go to where I couldn't even get a loading screen before the monitor went to sleep. I can hear everything whirring in the CPU as it boots, it just doesn't appear to be getting through to the monitor. I got frustrated and let it rest last night.

This morning I put the VGA cable back in and turned the power strip on and off and basically re-connected all the cables to give it one last try. I turned it on, and it booted up fine! I checked my e-mail, surfed the web for about 10 minutes, then launched my new game. I got through the opening credits and it went to sleep again!

What's going on here? Please tell me it's not the video card.

L bought this product from Costco about 9 months ago with external warranty for 18 months. Unfortunately the monitor has falling off the wall and damage the glass. what should l do now?


Your warranty does not cover the damage. If you want to have someone attempt a repair it will be at your expense. Otherwise you will need to purchase a new monitor unit if it is possible to buy one on ts own without having to buy a whole new package..

I have a 25" Hannspree monitor which is only about


No - the buzzing you're hearing is probably the inverter transformer. Its' purpose is to generate high voltage to turn on the backlight to display the image on the screen. The monitor should still be under manufacturers warranty since most of them are a year. Have it repaired or replaced.

Acer Aspire 5740 works very slow


It seems that your computer is loaded with a lot of programs during startup. This means that before windows can formally start, it has to load all those software into memory which can readily translate into slow performance.

To boost your computer performance, you have to decide which software to load at start-up (or boot time) and which should be loaded when necessary only.

To make this easier, I recommend that you download "CCleaner" software, a free software that can manage all these. With CCleaner, you can easily "disable" a software that is configured to load at startup.

These is no risk in unloading a software from startup since you can just open them when you need it. Startup programs comsume a lot of resources making your system to perform slowly.

Also, with CCleaner, you can cleanup the registry with all the mess that your programs do.

You can download it HERE.

Not getting constant play back


This is an excellent system for a bedroom or small office area. The random color changing light feature is very soothing to fall asleep to as well as the random/all disc playback so you don't fall asleep to the same thing every night! The 90 minute max sleep timer is just perfect to give me time to read a little and still be able to fall asleep to music. I also use the random playback feature during the day to play my parrot's training CDs so he doesn't get bored either! This is a great system and I highly recommend it.
