Question about Dell UltraSharp 2001FP 20.1" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

The monitor won't wake up after it goes to sleep for a few minutes. The orange light stays on. The computer is still on. If I hit the power button, it goes off, but when I turn it on again, the light turns orange and the screen stays black. The only way to get the screen is to turn off the power to the computer and restart.

Hi

Please check this website first.

http://www.cpuid.com/pcwizard.php

Take the side off the case and look at the label on the power supply for the details

To turn off the auto reboot control panel /system/advanced/startup and recovery settings
then untick the auto reboot box. Another aspect is that if you are using windows Vista you might want to repair reinstall vista as this is a known issue with vista.


Let us know if you want to know something else accept the suggestion.

Windows sleep mode problems


Sleep mode on a Windows 7 PC saves power without you having to turn your computer off and without losing any work. This option cuts the power to your monitor, powers down the hard drive and pauses all functions until you awaken the computer from hibernation. Whether you have a laptop, desktop or workstation, putting your computer into sleep mode will lower your electric bill and save money! Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. In the lower right corner of the Start menu, next to the "Shut Down" button, is a button labeled with a small, right-pointing arrow. Mouse over the arrow. The Shut Down menu appears. Point at "Sleep" and click on this option. Your Windows 7 computer goes into sleep mode. Wake your computer from sleep mode by jiggling the mouse. There may be a delay of a few seconds before your hardware powers on. All of your open programs are still open and your work is intact, just as you left it before the computer entered sleep mode. Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security." Click "Power Options." A menu opens. Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode. If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity

Go to Control Panel, (top right View Small Icons). Then look for Power Options. On this page, you'll have the option to leave the monitor on. You should also check "Advanced Power Options". Don't be afraid of the word, "Advanced." It only means "customizeable"

If your mouse isn't waking your monitor, try the keyboard's space bar. I found it works better than the mouse at waking a sleeping computer

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.

It sounds like the power management drivers with your OS are responsible. Maybe you should disable the power management on your computer, or possibly upgrade them and/or the BIOS.

How do I wake up the monitor when it goes to sleep when not used for a short time.


slapping it around usually works. "just a joke!"

tapping a few keys on your keyboard and moving the mouse will usually wake the monitor from sleep mode.

It turns off, or goes to sleep. Won't wake up.


Hello there topothemorni,

Are you familiar with Windows' "Power Options" module, and that within it you can tweak all things related to power saving (e.g., system sleep, hibernate, and automatic MONITOR shut off)? More than likely you just need to make a visit there and make some desired adjustments.

[Control Panel > Power Options]
... OR ...
Start > Run > type "powercfg.cpl" (without quotes), then hit Enter.

Once there, you'll probably find most everything self-explanatory.

Also, it may be responding to configurations adjustable from within the monitor itself. Somewhere on the monitor there will be a OSD (On Screen Display / Setup) button of some type, where from there you'll be able to make whatever necessary tweaks. Refer to its documentation if you don't find it self-explanatory.

Good luck and please let me know if you have any further questions, and/or just to let me know how things worked out.

"Today's the best day of my life...and NOW you're part of it!"

Monitor has no picture


Yes! :)

Your monitor is not the problem. Check all the connections from the back of the monitor, to the computer.

"No Signal Analog" means your monitor is working perfectly, however is not receiving signal from the computer.

Didnt find any loose cables?
Try unplugging everything. Leave it unplugged for at least 5 minutes. You need to give the system time to drain all the excess power.

Again your monitor is fine, blue light > No signal > orange light is totally normal for your montior.

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