When I am downloading a film...I leave my PC on but when I go back to it after about half an hour it has switched itself off stoopping my download can you help please ty mike


There is little info on your problem but I think you mean the screen went black while downloading a film. Normally computer monitors turn themselves off (dormant) to save energy and the life of the monitor's screen if not used for 10 or 30 minutes, depending on the settings, but the download just keeps going. Mine is set to 10 minutes. All you have to do is disturb the Mouse and see if the monitor screen switches itself on. There is another power saving option, and that is the Computer itself. If the computer is not used for one hour, it too goes dormant, but can also be set to switch itself completely off after the download is completed. However, if a computer is left on for over an hour, it can switch itself off to save energy and the computer's own wear and tear. It all depends on the computer hardware and the settings. If it is hardware controlled, then it may or may not switch itself off but it still goes dormant. Or it can be set to whatever you wish it to do, stay on all the time, go dormant after a set time or switch off if there is no prolonged activity.

When powering on my pc, the monitor immediately "goes to sleep". It would appear my pc has crashed.


I just got off chat with Sony. USELESS. In short they told me it might be a Display Switch problem and I should take the unit in for repair or call Service Assistance Team at 1-800-282-2848 and pay $50 to trouble shoot.

They also said to try this:
Please press and hold the F8 key for 7 to 10 seconds while restarting the Computer and check if you can access the Safe Mode of the Computer.

and/or
please try to connect the Computer to a different wall outlet and check if the issue is resolved.

I haven't tried any of the two options above yet because I'm afraid to turn off my computer because every time I turn it on I have to go through hell to get the monitor to stay on.

If anyone else has any solutions. please list them here. thanks

Black screen on monitor


Hi,
this will be the onboard VGA adaptor ( driver Missing Corrupt ) there are a couple of things to Try.
1:- remove power from Computer, Locate the Cmos battery ( small round battery that stores Bios Info ) remove battery for 10 seconds. replace. power up and boot.

2:- If your computer has an onboard graphics card Slot. AGP/Pci-express. add an additional card, and attempt to run on that card. to boot the computer, enabling you to re-install the corrupt/missing vga driver.

thankyou for using fixya.

When using computer for about 10 min, monitor goes blank with an error message of"No Input Signal" then computer rebuts several times. Any idea's?


Its possible that your computer maybe having a driver conflicting with your monitor. My suggestion would be reinstall the software that came with your monitor. If you don't have that go to the companies website that produced the monitor and download the newest monitor drivers.
As well for an extra double check, make sure that all wires connected to the monitor and the computer are in place.
(might check your monitors energy saving setting)

Screen does not stay on it just flashes on every four sec


Sounds like the refresh rate of your video adapter is set incorrcetly, especially if the monitor is new to the system. CRT monitors could handle a wider rate range than the current LCD's.

The next time it starts working correctly, go to "display settings" and check the "monitor" tab. For a LCD monitor, the refresh rate should be between 60 and 72. Experiment with the different rate settings to optimize your display.

Hope this helps

Computer monitor wont stay on


LMAO it sounds like it is going into power-saving mode because there is (or it -thinks- there is) no signal. Has it always done this? Try punching up the controls when you turn it on and changing its behavior through those menus. Doublecheck the monitor's connection to the computer. Alternately, if it is connected and a display is coming up for those 10 seconds; perhaps just going into sleep mode, with the power LED changing appropriately; you can look up the exact model, and find schematics and previously solved instances of your case.
Even if you can't find those, you could read through some introductory electronic circuit books (and the internals of the monitor...unplug and read the books' safety bits first) and determine what went bad and how to replace that component.
