If I leave my samsung q210 idle, the screen goes blank after a while. You can still see (and move) the mouse cursor, but the computer does not respond and you have to restart the computer to be able to work again.

Have you checked your power settings? It sounds like it is going into Hibernation. Depending on the version of windows you are using, it may be set to shut down after being idle. For Vista and Windows 7, you can go to your Control Panel, make sure you are in the classic view for XP, and Vista. If you have windows 7. you want to select under category, Large Icons dropdown to access all the Icons. Next go to Power settings. Click Power settings, and see what your PC is set to as far as the display, and you will be able to keep it on forever, or set it to shut off withing an hour. Once you put the amount of time you want to keep your PC on while it is idle, your PC should go off or stay on to your desired time. If this does not correct this issue, you may want to check with the manufacturer, you can usually go to their website, and they can help you. There are great chat support sites. Hope this helps.

Sounds like ou might have the Computer set to either Hib ernate or Standby.

Go into the settings and disable them so as to NOT have Hibernate or Standby.

My wife's Laptop has this problem, and we found that just shutting it down when you don't need it, when on battery this is, is the simplest and easiest way.
On power it doesn't matter, just close the lid is all that is needed.

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.


Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

Sidebar has suddenly moved to side affecting size of screen. How do I return it to bottom???


You are probably talking about the windows Task bar that normally resides at the bottom of the screen:
.
Two ways of moving this task ba, to top/bottom/letft/right position of the display:
  1. Move the cursor on a blank/inactive area on the task bar, usually in the largest blank area towards the right, click and hold the right mouse button and drag the Task bar to the bottom of the screen.
  2. Go to the Task Bar 'Properties' (You can get this context menu by clicking the left mouse button after putting the cursor on a blank/inactive area on the task bar) and change the 'Task bar location on screen' option.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

I have a Toshiba A105 Laptop, Screen goes blank after windows....


Here are some easy things that can sometimes resolve this problem:
1) Sometimes there can be a static buildup on the mother board. Power off, remove the battery, remove the power cord and hold the power button in the on position for at least 30 seconds.
2) If that didn't work- Power down, remove the battery, remove the Hard Drive and memory modules and reinsert them. Try to power back up
If these things don't work, get back to me for some more ideas.
