Dell inspiron 400 W7 dont wake up, monitor and startbutton(yellow) says its sleeping..how can i wake up?


You need to call the service centre. I've had this happen to my computer and this is not a DIY project that can do any good. If shutting off the power and then switching it on again after a while isn't working, then there's something seriously wrong inside.

My HP w2228h monitor randomly decides to go black and go to sleep. I cannot wake it up. The only way around this is to hold the on/off button down and completely shut down the cpu but I don't like doing...


You will need to update your video/graphics driver for your computer/laptop. This will fix the communication between your computer and the monitor.

How do I switch from DVI to VGA before monitor goes to to sleep?


The "Select" button on the front is supposed to perform this function, usually a monitor will default to whatever mode it was in when it shut down. Alternate presses of the button will switch between the two. I have seen monitors fail to recognize seemingly valid inputs for various reasons, sometimes the computer settings are incorrect and sometimes failure of the monitor video input. I have also seen buttons fail or get stuck on, they also occasionally get contaminated with screen cleaning fluid. If you need more help reply with more specific information about the problem.

Monitor goes into sleep mode at random


Check your power options in your control panel - default is usually 20 minutes to put monitor to sleep - you can adjust the time there. The monitor itself does not usually have this as a function so I would start there first.

The monitor shuts off or the video card shuts off?

If it's the video card it's probably a heat or driver issue.

If it's the monitor it's probably a heat or ROM issue.

Monitor goes to sleep and won't wake up


Yeah, im not sure about how to fix the problem with it shutting down like that, but one option is to go under your control panel and taking off the sleep function, or putting it on a 4 hour timer so that doesnt go into sleep mode anymore. However, the problem is not your monitor but your computer. Id just take the sleep mode off, there is no need to have it on.
