My monitor will not stay on, it goes on sleep mode


Hi,
Your problem may be due to the sleep button in your keyboard may got struct into when you cleaned your keyboard.
Try to resolve the struct in the keys, if any.
Restart your system and if still your problem persists, then remove your keyboard and restart your computer and try with some other keyboard if possible. Once if you find out that the problem is with your keyboard, then replace the keyboard / service the existing one.'

I hope this is helpful to you. Please provide your ratings.
Thanks

Your Problem Is not in your Monitor Its in your CPU. Your CPU is not giving Display Signal to Monitor that's why Monitor goes to power saving mode. try to open Your CPU and remove RAM Clean RAM Slots and Fix it Again. Try to Boot now.

For the past week, when my Sceptre LCD monitor goes to sleep after inactivity, it won't restart immediately. The blue LED blinks every second or so; eventually, the screen begins to flash the display, and...


Hello there Jake.

Here's your geek-steer ...

== CLARIFICATION ==
  • When you say "sleep", are you certain it's sleep mode, as opposed to hibernate?
  • "...it won't restart immediately." ... you do mean of course AFTER you've given keyboard or mouse input, right?
  • "...the screen begins to flash the display" ... literally flash, as in strobe? Or do you just mean flash, as in "shows".
  • "...Sometimes the whole process takes five minutes, sometimes an hour." ... ???!!! If it takes anything longer than few/several moments, that's very abnormal, even if hibernate mode.
  • "...I can't find the documentation." ... not important, at least not at this point.
== SUGGESTIONS ==

A. RULE OUT THE SIMPLE FIRST.

1. Shutdown
2. Turn off PC and monitor
3. wait 5 minutes
4. unplug all cables/cords connected to monitor (both ends)
5. inspect/clean connect points
6. reconnect all cables/cords
7. plug monitor back in
8. startup system
9. try to duplicate problem

B. CPU HOG.

I'm curious to know what all your "Processes" are doing during this very delayed period of time. By knowing that, you can see which one(s) are running, and which of them are probably crunching hard at the CPU, which MAY explain the delay (I don't know about an hour, but minutes ... yes).

Do you have a "Processes" monitor utility of any kind? If not, get SysInternals' "Process Explorer" (no installation required, just unpack and launch). Make sure at least the "CPU History" item is included in the column header (View > Select Columns). Once launched, allow it to sleep.

Just as soon as able, after it comes out of sleep, review Process Explorer. What, if any, processes are hogging CPU? Post that back, and I suspect we may be a lot closer to a solution.

C. MONITOR FAILURE.

You might also hook up this monitor to a "known good" (functioning properly) PC with like "screen saver" and "power options" settings. If problem not encountered, you can at least isolate the problem to solely the monitor. However, if the only time you encounter problem with monitor is isolated to when coming out of sleep, this is likely a long-shot.

Good luck Jake, and please do post back ...
  • to let me (and interested others) know how things worked out,
  • to provide clarification or feedback.
  • if you have any further questions,

Blank screen after monitor sleep just blue flashing light


Hi,

First of all you can change the Power Settings in Control Panel. You can configure as you need. I mean after how much wait it should go for sleep n all.

If it takes 5 min. to wakeup that means you have so many applications running that system cannot manage or RAM is small.

The final solution just remove the Display drivers and reinstall it.

After removing please restart the system once to proceed further

Sounds like a bad graphics card. Try using monitor wit another computer and see if the problem still exists. This rules out the display.

PC shuts down while running Windows


Attempt to boot the machine in Safe-Mode.

While powering up continuously hit F8.

You will get a Boot Option Menu, Select Safe-Mode boot

If you can get into safe-mode I would suggest to try doing an online scan, as it sounds like your issue could be related to malware:
