I assume you are running window XP or vista?
Go to
Start>Control Panel and look for Power Saver, or Screensaver options. There will be settings there for determining how long, if at all, your display will take to turn off.

MY PACKARD BELL PIV HAS N1996 MOTHER BOARD and no display is comming

MY PACKARD BELL PIV HAS N1996 MOTHER BOARD I cant see any display on my screen when i turn on my computer. But it looks it has read all the information from harddisk and loaded the operating system. but on screen i cant see any raster i.e. display.

First At this time u observe one thing check the Numlock Status if it is ON/OFF (Glow ) in Keyboard when u pressing the  Numlock key, the system is giving display check with pci vga card.

If not u  remove the Ram module and heard the Beepsound,if Beep is comming Clean the Ram & Ram slot the try it again
If not check with another Ram module.

If it is also not problem u clear the CMOS once and check it
