Question about Computers & Internet
My PC was running sweet from new and I used to be able to press the 'Sleep' button on the keyboard, it closed down and then wakened when I moved the mouse. But recently it wont come out of the standby / suspend mode and just lets the monitor light flash. I then have to reboot. The PC actually must have crashed as the Cap Lock will not go on and the monitor screen just remains black
Any help appreciated as I've searched the net but can't get a solution
Try turning off, and unplugging the monitor.
then replace the cable between monitor and pc.
if you still get no action, i,d suggest looking at the graphics card.
if it,s a pci card, try it in a different slot on the motherboard.
if it,s agp try an alternative card, if it,s onboard, try adding an additional card to the system, to see if that brings the monitor out of standby.
