I would try going into your video settings, right click on your desktop then go to properties, In the window click on the Screen Saver tab and go to the bottom where it says monitor power click the button that says powermidway towards the bottom there will be 3 settings, the first being "turn off monitor" with a drop down menu... set it to Never. That should keep it from turning off. If there is something wrong with the cables and its stil shutting off, you may just need to gte a new power cord, its usually the same cord used for the computer power and they aren't very expensive, Radio Shack probably carries them. Hope thishelps, Good Luck!

When I turn on the computer the monitor starts to come on and then it goes into safe mode and goes off. I first get a green light for a couple of seconds then it goes to amber.


Have you tried with another computer? I suggest to do it first, before assuming this is your monitor problem...as this is usually caused by most of computer problem not monitor.

My laptop moniter turns on as usual with the proper reading. I start in safe mode as normal..wait about 10 min and screen goes white


hello

"I start in safe mode as normal."

safe mode is not a normal thing during your windows boot sequence :)
if your display works ok until those 10 minutes of safe mode are over i would say that reinstalling your windows operating system will most likely solve your monitor issues :)

Screen goes black. the power light is on, but the picture goes out. if i turn the power off, then on again it comes back for about 5 seconds, then goes black again.


Check to see if this problem follows in safe mode. Reboot and when the Dell splash screen comes up tap F8 until you see the multiboot options. Scroll to "safe Mode with Networking" let the machine boot up and see if you have a screen. If you do, right click on the desktop and set the resolution to 800 X600 and reboot normally. Usually when a screen goes blank in normal mode but shows up in safe mode means you have an incompatible resolution for the monitor or graphics adapter. This may be a driver issue or hardware. If the screen boots up in normal mode at the lower resolution, then try and go to properties again and bump the resolution up a bit, if it blanks again, try to go online and update the driver for the graphics chip.

Dell E173FP Monitor requires unplugging/plugging back in to wake


Perhaps your computer is hibernating instead of going into standby which takes a little longer to wake up from. While you are playing plugs and cables it give it enough time to come out of hibernation.

When the computer is in this mode the USB ports turn off which disables keyboard and mouse so the only way to wake up the computer is to press the power button on the computer itself.

One tell tale sign a computer is in hibernation is that the power light on the computer will slowly blink.

I hope this helps.

Monitor keep going into "sleep" mode


Check the power setting in control panel of windows. If you have a monitor from another computer swap them and see if the problem stays with the computer or monitor.

Sharp light turns green thern turns yellow screen goes black


it is going into sleep mode, good luck with this.... i am currently asking how to get my hard drive to quite putting my monitor into sleep mode.

although it hasn't worked for me because my screen stays black, one of the options given to me is to try to start in safe mode and then adjust your settings to "never" on the energy/sleep/hibernate mode

some one else suggested that i remove and reseat the video card

hopefully one of those will work for you

When the computer is turned on the monitor goes to sleep mode


Go to safe mode,select boot in vga mode.

If this allows you to start,

Click start,Run type desk.cpl
Screen Saver tab | click on Energy
Under desk or office settings frame, set all values to "never".
Then click
Advanced Options, you'll see a frame asking you what to do.
Just select the options to turn off sleep mode.
check that out.

If you can't start this way,you need to try another monitor to change the setting above.


Please rate this a fixya
