Screen remains black when coming out of sleep mode asus a8n-vm cms motherboard


IT is most probably windows 7 issue. I saw problem with desktop computers coming back from sleep for many times.

I advice you to avoid sleep. If that is not issue, first test memory, cause sleep stores everything to the memory.

Please tell which OS you use ? As said on start it might be Windows 7 ...

Toshiba Satellite won't start up when AC plugged in


Try another Cord/Charger to verify the Cord, AC jack. If you plug in the AC cord after starting on battery, does the battery charge? Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust Advanced power setting to your preference.

Hp pavillion t660a... when i turn power on the light flashes a few times like it would as if it was going to startup normally, then everything goes neutral and nothing happens. is this a motherboard p


It sounds like your computer is in sleep mode or hibernation mode. remove the battery and unplug it from the wall wait a few seconds and try again. If it does it again press the sleep button on your keyboard. Also make sure no flash drives or cds are in the computer during boot up.

My display screen goes on and off


I find sleep mode nothing but trouble, eventually corrupts window files over extended use, go into power options, go to stand by and select never and click apply, next go to hibernate "top right" and click, make sure the check box is clear, if not! remove check and click apply and restart your laptop.

My dell dimension has gone to sleep mode by it self, and now it does not go on?? tried to take out the power cord and start but straight away it goes to sleep mode??

When the system is going back into sleep mode what color is the power button flashing. It should like the system my not be going into sleep mode but have a more serious problem.

Also let me know what you see on the screen as you turn on the system.

Another thing to try is after you unplug the system hold down the power button for 30 to 45 seconds. This will reset the power state of the system. Note if you have the system plugged into a power strip you will want to reset the power strip too.

I own an HP Pavilion tx2110us, yesterday the laptop was working fine, i sent it to sleep and went to bed, today at the office, the computer simply doesn't start up, it powers up for about less than 1...


Hi,

Remove AC power and then the battery. Then just plug in the battery itself (no AC). See if the laptop will power up. If it does plug AC power back in and don't use the sleep mode as there are problems with some Microsoft updates stopping the computers from resuming from sleep.


Please let me know how you get on.


Good luck.

My phillips freevent LS1400 is gone into sleep mode and the lazy thing will not get up help i have tryed everything


Hi
Sleep Mode problems are ofter caused by a corrupted display adapter driver - try this:
1. Restart computer whilst constantly tapping the F8 key to get to the screen where you can select Windows Safe Mode.
2. Select Safe Mode without Networking - the computer will appear to stall for a short while but then it will enter Safe Mode and take you to a basic desktop.
3. click START then RIGHT CLICK on My Computer and click on Properties.
4. This opens the System Properties box - select Hardware then Device Manager
5. When Device Manager box opens double click on Display Adapters then double click on the display adapter itself.
6. This will bring up the individual display adapter box - click on 'Driver' at the top of the box.
7. Here you will see a number of options to check out your display driver but if you do check, Windows will probably tell you the driver is OK but it is LYING!!!
8. Trust me here...you need to click on the option to uninstall the driver.
9. The display adapter driver will then be deleted.
10. Click the usual options to get back to your basic desktop then START/TURN OFF Computer and choose RESTART.
11. When the computer restarts in normal mode the corrupted driver will not now force it into Sleep Mode - but because the custom display adapter driver is no longer present, Windows will use its basic driver to allow your desktop to open.
12. Once your computer is up and running Windows does a hardware scan and it will Identify your display adapter as NEW HARDWARE.
13. Windows stores a copy of all the drivers it needs to run the computer's installed hardware in its System 32 folder so it goes there, finds the appropriate display driver and installs it.

...JOB DONE...Now can I tell you this will definitely solve your sleep mode problem? No of course not - but it worked for me on my office HP desktop and when another machine in the office displayed the same symptoms it worked again. By the way, deleting the drive is not a risky thing to do because (a) Windows always saves a copy of the drivers on a computer in System 32 and (b) your computer isn't working anyway!

I have a Dell Inspiron 530


I have a Dell Inspiron 530S, and it exhibited the same symptoms as rguggemos's & Wilburollie's.

I can put it to sleep, but when I try to wake it, it won't. The screen will stay black. I can hear the drives spin up, and the fans go on FULL blast, and the blue power LED stays flashing, but the computer will stay like that - no picture or anything. Then I'd have to press & hold the power button to force it off, then power back on. Not ideal.

The solution that worked for me?! On boot, at the "DELL" logo, hit F2 to enter the BIOS setup, go to Power Management, and change the standby mode from S3 to S1. The difference? S3 is a "deeper" sleep, w/ more components powered off, which is better, energy-wise, but it is more difficult to wake from. S1 is a "light" sleep. Give it a shot! Maybe it'll work!

Good luck!

Stolen from another forum:

S0 (Working) is lit. The CPU functions in entirety; the conservation of power is on a basis of by-device.

S1 (Sleep). The CPU is stopped; The RAM is regenerated; the system functions in reduced power.

S2 (Sleep 2) The CPU does not have any power; The RAM is regenerated; the system is in lower mode of the S1.

S3 (Standby) The CPU does not have any power; The RAM regenerates at minimum; the power supply unit is in mode of reduced power. This mode is also called “Save to RAM”.

S4 (Hibernate). All is powered off, but the memory was saved like temporary file on the hard drive. This mode is called “Save to disk”.

S5 (Off) Everything is shutdown. Means you need a full reboot.

I currently operate an HP nc8430 Laptop with a docking station. Attached is a Phillips a 24" Widescreen LCD monitor. The problem is as follows: • At startup, the Laptop and LCD work fine up until...


1) Change the power settings to not do anything when you close the lid under AC power. The LCD isn't entering sleep mode, the laptop is.

2) Change the monitor setup so that monitor 2 (the LCD) is the main monitor.

3) Change the resolution for the LCD to the way you want it. (You may also have to use the monitor's adjustments - on the monitor - to make the display a little smaller, so you can see everything. Different monitors are masked differently.)
