Press the power button on the Computer it should come out of sleep mode then if it doesn't hold the power button of the computer down until the system turns completely off.

Then turn back on the computer should now boot fine. Once in windows goto control panel and select power option then adjust the setting.

Hope this helps you
Cheers J

My screen symtoms are a little different on my L1975NW.

I am guessing the LED power indicator blinks green then becomes steady when the screen "turns on" (shows video). The problem is most likely a failing backlight power supply. That's why there is a 30 minute delay. Try to disable sleep mode and see whether that helps.

The cpu is running,the motherboard is with green light inside,but the monitor blanck

what king of monitor you have., crt or LCD, does the monitor led indicator has a green light, is there any beep when starting the cpu? how many beeps you have heard when the cpu was starting?.

if there is no led indicator light in you monitor the posibilities of that is the monitor was the problem.
solution: try to check your plug in monitor if it is properly inserted in the power plug or in the vga plug correctly.

if when you power the cpu and your monitor led indicator, turn green and back in the standby mode. listen to the beep sound of cpu if theres any.
solution: try eject the mem card. in the slot and clean the contact with the eraser. and put it back into the slot again after you clean it.

We need to narrow down to find out if it is your PC is not sending the video signal to the monitor or the monitor itself is bad, you need to try this monitor with another PC or try this PC with another monitor.

May be the problem comes from the Cpu.
Try to see if the cable from the monitor is firmly connected to the cpu.
One thing more may be the vga card is having problem.
Try to test the screen with another Cpu. Or the cpu with another monitor.
The amber mode is normal as the screen is not receiving signal from the cpu.
At times the memory chip also report this problem (no display or sleep mode)
Do hear any beep sound or any other Errors??
OK try this

You will need to replace the hard drive which has any version of windows operating system, or you will have to re-install windows xp on that computer. Assuming if the computer has a green light and monitor has an orange light. I've encountered this problem where I work at.
