Monitor going to sleep

Recently our desktop started experiencing a situation where no matter what process we were running the screen goes black and a box pops up stating that the monitor is going to sleep and then the computer starts rythmic "beeping" and from that point on we are unable to get the screen or system unlocked and running again. Can someone please offer some suggestions

Within the control panel select performance and maintenance within that select power options.

Once in there check that the power is set for desktop computer and that never sleep on monitor or Hard disks.

If this doesn't work then press the OSD button on the monitor and scroll through the setting and make sure that there isn't one that is auto sleep mode after and amount of time.

Thanks J

How do I turn off the sleep mode on my monitor?


Control panel Power options adjust time for monitor time to sleep you can adjust 5 minutes to never the option available same can be done for hard disk. This is necessary as even monitor is active and when hard disk goes to sleep you may end up in same situation
Alternatively you can activate screen saver by
right click on desktop, settings screen saver choose screen saver set time to activate screen saver.

The monitor will go into sleep mode, and when first booted up will not register anything and goes to sleep. Have tried re-booting, checking the chords, plugging and unplugging them in. To no avail it...


No pc stated just monitor. (not even desktop or laptop) stated.
no OS stated, ether.
so ill answer in wide generic ways....
all computer are a problem, since days of Mr. Allen Turning to now.
ive done 43years of them just puters.(and other big systems MIL)
no person on earth can answer that common question
gee no pc stated,! nor can we lay blame until its fixed can we. ever.

3+billions of transistors. mine here typing now.
4,800,000,000, and friends, lots of other things to fail even LCD
its not a toaster or 4 banger calculator, at all.
its COMPLEX but 1 of those 2 boxs or cable are bad. sure.
(viewed in the MACRO)

sleep? how do you know it is sleep.
the screen showed that. text said SPEEP?
is the screen totally dead. (that is not sleep if true)
is the screens OSD button dead?,
the only clue i have here is one word, REGISTER (good word just too few)
so the screen never ever shows any text or HP logo ever
booting with monitor on for 5min. power on PC, see words?
no text ever...so.

then push the monitors.
Select menu buttons on front of monitors. and the OSD pops does it , it must....!!! see image below (mine is Viewsonic, near new)

there are many simple tests here.
  • try you monitor on any other PC
  • or try you pc on any other monitor
easy no.?, just 1 or 2 tests and bam, who's bad.
called the process of elimination..
but OSD is first. no matter what,.

if the screen tests ok,, (display tests and its buttons)
then the PC is problematic, (1/2 the battle won)
the first thing to do (tell me what pC) but turn off all sleep
modes in the CONTROL PANEL + POWER SETTINGS>
do that first. if you can even get the screen to work.

A pc never boots to sleep so.....
the PC can have 2 VGA jacks on the rear.
the PC can have DVI jacks, using those are you
try them all yet?
if you test the PC and it works and the screen works the cable is bad.


omg that screen is new, its even sold now at walmart.
not cheap either, too much, kinda
this is a modern 22" screen, LED>
and do not just go bad, is the power pack there and correct?
if the OSD screen is dead, check power first.

this is the Monitors brain, it works even with the PC dead.


the button is marked menu or select. this is test1.
osd-1z31dkbg41o2owghj0fas5br-1-0.jpg on my monitor ,heck all 2004 up
it tells you SLeep mode when the PC goes to sleep mode
or shows Power saver mode. live on the screen.
screen power on first sure.

all ways to go black done here.

My Dell monitor goes to sleep right after windows xp starts to load and it won't come on after that. my computer is still running but the monitor is a sleep. I have hit f8 and f12 with nothing happening....


Go into safe mode
Under settings, control panel, power options set "turn off monitor to never
reboot

I think this is not a sleep problem but the incorrect monitor settings were set. This will cause the screen to go black when the OS comes up. Boot in safe mode and change the display settings
to 640x480
OR
in safe mode, delete your monitor. When you reboot it will load a default monitor and you should be OK

Windows xp will not load on my computer....


It could be your hard drive problem. Which I called it, "Crash." I would suggest you try to format the hard drive and reload the operation system with your installation CD.
