Question about HP w1907 LCD Monitor
I am looking for some help with the monitor on my grandparents (hp 1907w) computer. They leave it on all the time and today it locked up with what looked like the bottom part of the screen picture repeating over and over again. Like when the horizontal hold needs adjusted on a TV but without the movement. I shut it all down, waited a few minutes and turned it back on. It booted back up but the monitor kept going into sleep mode before it was all the way back on. Finally, I got it to stay on long enough for my Grandpa to get through one game of solitare and he stopped playing for awhile then it happened again. Any ideas on what to try would be greatly appreciated!
Go into the monitor menu and choose factory reset....Make sure the resolution is set correctly. (see here.)
You might want to run My Display, or install it if you haven't (See here)
Make sure the latest drivers for your os are installed. See here and here., and this tutorial for updating your video card or graphics adapter.
I've seen some reports in the forums about sleep problems on these, but the cause could easily be the pc. If you can, switch monitors to confirm the fault to be with either the pc or the monitor, and try the monitor on another system...
That's all I can offer you right now, as the HP site seems to be having trouble this evening...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Yes don't buy HP, they are famous for breaking down just outside the warranty.
