Question about Computers & Internet
My screen remains dark and blank after the computer has been switched on for at least , 4/ 5 hours, then lights up and works perfectly. If I dont use the computer for half an hour, the screen goes to sleep and wont switch back on for about 20 minutes. Please can someone helpme. Is there something I should know?
Try a different screensaver.
Also look in the display properties by simply right clicking the desktop and clicking properties.
Then locate power management.
the initial seems to be a bad screensaver judging by the 20 minutes, but the 4-5 hours seems to be a sleep mode that bypasses the screensaver issue.

You people are not explaining in detail what is actually wrong?. If you do this we can try to help you.
1 Does the power lights light up.
2 Does the hard-drive light light up
3. Does anything go on the computer.
4 What does and what does not (lightup)
Just because you have a blank screen does not necessarily mean the screen is "had it" and by plugging an external monitor to see if there is problem does not exist.
For all we know your motherboard may have ceased to exist or your hard drive crashed or your memory chip. Please help me to help you?
