Question about HP Computers & Internet
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.
click power settings
set the monitor to never sleep or dim
same on all windows.
the monitor is totally programmable
why not tell OS?
why does my windows 10 monitor go to sleep
the defaults under windows, are always wrong,
it's to keep the FEDs happy with there Energy Star bs.
im on laptop now far far from USA
set it all to not use sleep etccetra.

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things
working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
hope this helps
