Re: SVA Monitor stuck in Analog Mode or Sleep Mode
Actually it was quite easy. I rebooted my computer in "safe mode" by restarting it and pressing the F8 key. At the start up windows gives you an option to toggle down to "enable VGA mode" and select it. After that, my computer recognized my monitor and it has worked fine ever since!

Most likely your issue is a bad video card or a bad vga cable. Try swapping video cards and see if this doesn't solve the problem. You could also use a vga signal generator, available for pretty cheap, to inject a signal into the monitor to determine if the problem is indeed your source rather than your monitor. If the monitor is the problem, you can try troubleshooting the various components on the circuit board with a huntron tracker while the unit is powered down. But then, I digress, as this is quickly becoming a solution beyond my ability to explain to you the inner workings of such things as a pn junction or the phase lag of a capacitor or the ringing of an inductor. Sorry, might be best for you to simply buy a new monitor. Ones like these cost, what - oh, look! FRee on craigslist.
It sounds like that monitor has a leakage problem on the ground or shield. This is a common flaw that forces intel motherboards to keep from booting. If you carefully cut the outermost layer of monitor cable away (it looks like a basket weave made of metal threads) that surrounds the other signal cables inside, this problem will go away.
Double check the monitor cable, both going to the monitor, and going to the computer. Ensure it's securely connected. If this doesn't change anything, try rebooting your computer. When the power light flashes, it's in sleep mode and doesn't detect either an analog or digital signal - so either your computer has gone into sleep mode (you can awaken it by hitting any key or moving the mouse) or the cable isn't attached securely. Since your computer is brand new, it's unlikely that anything has broken down already. Another thing to check is to make sure that the resolution in your Display Settings is the correct resolution for the monitor - although it's hard to do this if you can't see what you're doing.
Have you tried getting a second monitor ? then using it to get to the desktop and go to power options and set your monitor to never turn off? after that is done try your monitor again and see if that works.
SleepSleep is a mode that the computer enters after being inactive for a set amount of time. Commonly, this mode will turn off a device or set it into a stand-by
No data is lost when computer components enter a low-power mode, ... keyboard would get the computer out of this mode. Also see: Power Definitions, Sleep
This should wake your computer, Good Luck/Please dont for get to Vote.Thank you.
If possible, try a friends monitor first. If it works, you can then change the sleep mode setting so that it won't come on again. If the other monitor does not work, the video card is probably defective.
