Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
When I boot up PC and go through usual Switch-on/log-in procedure and begin using the PC randomly goes through some sort of reset/re-boot procedure which results in the monitor switching to stand-by/hibernate mode with the PC on. I have to press and hold the power buton down in order to get PC to switch off and thus re-booting in order to switch the monitor back on.
This happens with both CRT and LCD monitor types.
Any ideas/solutions welcome.........................???
monitors green light stays on through the start up XP and just as it is ready to go, the monitor shuts down and the yellow light comes on. Monitor will remain on if I hit the menu button or hit the space bar during start up for the diagnostics. it remained for an hr during system checks and as soon as that was done it went to sleep.
Apparently someone must have went into your properties, By right clicking anywhere on the desktop, Choose properties and then screen saver and then power options, Once there look into the setting for hibernation,standby,sleep make sure that they are set so not shut monitor off after so many minutes. What I am thinking is when you quit using your mouse for any amount of time it turns the monitor off. I hope that gets you going, If not you can Write back here and ask me again we can look for another solution. Thanks
