I assume you are talking about saving power mode and other like that and probably has issues to get back and resume once that it is this case to get rid of them and always keep the active mode right click on the monitor ..than select properties..than the screen saver and ..first see the settings for the screen saver...My advice is to remove any screen savers for to avoid this kinda problems ..For that just select none in the list and press apply...after that in the same window with the screen savers ..choose power options ..and there will be a few options for both modes...the adapter on ..and battery ..
you can leave some options on for the battery mode...but for the adapter mode...remove all ..and choose never to turn off anything in any case..and click apply ...after that leave it with the power adapter plugged and see if it ever goes in that mode you mention ...
To be sure you never have problems you can choose the same for the battery cause the actuall power saving is minimal anyway ..and if you just want to save power you can just flip off the screen and it will be in the stand by mode automatically ..

    pay attention on the setting and the aplying ..cause if you remove all the screen savers,,and the power setting that all it remain is no normal and there may be something wrong with the Hard disk if the screen gets fuzzy and so ..or the Ram memory ..If you upgraded the ram and inserted a second ram recently can get it out for a few minutes and see if this is the issue ..Again ..if you removed all the power savers..that it should not suppose to ack in anyway but stay on all the time ..So if it does this is not normal..Also remove any program that you installed and have something to do with putting wallpapers on it or anything like that ....If it still does the same ..and you know for sure you didn;t change anything on the hardware ...(ram memory or so ) ..than it is a problem with the Hdd and this should be solved after you will reinstall the operation system and format the hard disk all..not just the C partition ...But ..until than you can make a programing to check for errors on the next boot and fix them too ...
    For that just right click on the C drive into my computer and after that choose properties..and Tools..the first tool will be to check your hdd for errors ...if you open it you have 2 options that you have to check ..and after that start will prompt you that it could not perform the chack cause windows it is running ..but it can be programmed to scan and recover after first reboot..choose OK ..and now it is programmed..reboot it ..and let it scan ..cause when it wil be done ..with the scanning for bad sectors..and the recovery of them will give you a report and start automatically ..This will take a while and its boring to watch ..but I advice to let it do the job cause it is very helpful...
    From the same window with the tools ...after the checking and reboot you can choose to defacement the drives ..and this will put the files in order for fast finding and quick engage...This is about all you can do without reinstalling ..and if that is a windows error it will persist until you will reinstall ..if it is a Hdd temporar error it will be fixed by the previous explained check ...but if it is a Ram memory error will be worse and eventually crash ..and you will have to replace the ram ..or if you recently added some ram memory in extra ..probably it is not compatible..and that is the issue...

2005 mazda 3 wont start. hear a clicking noise, gauges flutter, changed the battery and did not work. What could it be

possibly loose connection from battery to starter?,car has fuse for starting?....etc. Usually when a car's battery is very low and you try to start it,it would have those symptoms (gauges flicker/flutter). If the battery and connections are done properly,have you tried push starting (if standard transmission)it?. Possibly starter stuck on bad part of flywheel?;I'd try to rotate the crankshaft with breaker bar&socket (direction in which the engine would crank or run to avoid loosening the crankshaft bolt!!!) it would loosen the stuck starter/flywheel. Does your car have a starter solenoid or is it built in???

When I drive the car it is OK but when I stop the car and turn the key off and try to start the car again it will not start unless I let it cool down. Then it will start.

hello toy. remove the air filter and manually open the flutter valve while a friend turns the key and starts it up for you. often that flutter valve needs a wee bit of WD-40 or other lube to work properly. joe

Door locks fluttering from time to time when you use remote & continue to flutter on and off for a while.

The actuator is causing the fluttering. When they are starting to go out, the locks will flutter. It seems to have more problems in the cold, because the lubrication in the actuator gets thick when it is cold.

Fluttering glitchy screen

if your laptop supports dual monitors then it's a pretty easy fix. Plug in an external monitor and secure the screws. reboot your system and it will recognize the external monitor and set it up as your main monitor. you now have access to all your files w/o the cost of replacing your laptop screen (which would cost about as much as a new one). ^_^
