Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

3 Answers

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".

I just bought a new computer tower, but need to retrieve some information from my old Compaq Presario 5103 CL. When I plug the monitor back into the Presario, the monitor kicks into sleep mode and won't wake up, not even when I press the wake up button. Reboot doesn't help.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

Monitor won,t wake up from sleep mode


Open monitor and look at power supply board for capacitors which are "balooning" or deformed in any way. These look like cylindars on the board. These tend to dry out and make what you are describing occur. Replacing them usually fixes about 80% of the problem you are describing. Those parts run about $0.25 to $0.75 each.. well worth trying, right?

You should be able to just press the main system unit power button to wake up your 'sleeping' computer which will then resume your Windows desktop and bring you back to the Login panel if you have a password set for your account.

Plug the monitor into another computer to determine if the monitor is damaged or working properly. You can also plug another monitor into your computer to determine the same thing.

I have a desktop XPS 410, it went into sleep mode but will not wake up. I unplugged all the cords and still nothing. the monitor states its in sleep save. how do i get it to wake up?


you may have a computer issue, you may have a monitor issue.
If the computer is powering on, (Green power led on tower and all 4 diags LEDs flash and then finally go out), then the issue is most likely the Monitor. From your description, I'd say monitor, try a different one or try this monitor on another system.
If you have diagnostic LED indications on the tower then this information may help

Cannot get me monitor out of sleep mode, please help?


Hi

Pls check the power management properties in device manager to check if the option to wake the computer from sleep for the keyboard and mouse are enabled.
You may also try to change the power plan or create a new power plan and check if you are able to wake the computer from sleep.
If this problem started a few days back, then you may try to do a system restore.

Hit the keyboard keys. It is better to just turn sleep and hibernate off and just use a screen saver or tun it off.
