Monitor goes to sleep and computer will not boot

Hello,

I have a HP Pavilion (don't know the type at this moment) that I bought 3 years ago. I tried to boot my computer a week ago. At first I can hear the fan, then the fan will decrease its sound so you can barely hear it, but it's still running. The monitor will say that my computer didn't start properly and give me the option to start in regular mode or safe mode etc.... (I have picked them all). Then the fan will kick on and sound normal again, then my monitor goes to sleep, then I will get the Windows XP screen and then it starts all over again in circles. It doesn't really boot 100%.

I have unplugged and plugged and unplugged...... and nothing seems to work. Could it be my hard drive is shot? It's looking for Windows and can't find the software to fully boot?

Thank you!
Calliebrin

If your monitor goes to sleep, how do you know it got to window xp screen ?

Sound like your stuck in a loop (bad boot sector). You might have to reinstall windows again.

We just got an HP Pavilion A1540N from my cousin, we are trying to boot it up and it beeps and the monitor turns on but goes right to sleep.


Will need the beep sequence the amount of beeps. The beeps lets ya know that there was something wrong in POST. Most likely cause would be the video card but need the beep sequence to be certain.

Spacebar puts monitor to sleep


Hello,
You can reboot your HP Pavilion, and while rebooting go to BIOS by constantly tapping F1. And then there has to be an option which you need to enable "Wake up by Space bar" option. Once you enable the option, save the BIOS settings and then try whether the issue persists or not.

I have a HP monitor for 2yrs now. It was working fine until recently I noticed that whenever I boot up the monitor goes into sleep mode and the PC is not coming on. How can I resolve this problem and can...


The problem you are encountering is not your monitor but your computer. There is a problem with your CPU unit. To know this info in true then try this.,remove the connections of the monitor from your own computer then use the monitor to the other computer and see. Hope this could help you determine the real problem.

Screen goes black on my hp pavilion dv4000 notebook


Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop. The video data will switch to the monitor automatically, check if the monitor dislays a normal image and see if the image stays on the monitor.
Also press and hold the Fn key and press the F4 key, these keys toggle the video output between the LCD screen and the video port.
Test to see if this functions correctly.
Get back to me with the results of the tests.

Cpu says no input vga signal, then goes to sleep


The no input VGA signal just means that the monitor is not receiving anything from the graphic card on the tower. Is the card a digital (DVI) output card? You'll know by the connector, it's white and slightly wider than a standard VGA connector. If so, perhaps the monitor is set to the wrong input?

If that isn't the case, and the computer is using an on-board or built-in graphics controller, you could try resetting the system's CMOS settings by setting the clear-settings jumper on the system board, or simply remove the plug and CMOS battery for a few minutes. Check the computer's documentation on the exact steps to do this.

Hope this helps!

New video card installed, now monitor won't work.


  • A vary basic failure here.
  • the OSD tells you , pin1,2,3,13,14 are dead but that is what sleep does. kills video and sync.
  • no PC stated
  • no OS stated. windows 10? what? why must beg.
  • did you turn off all sleep and hibernate in your power manager
  • click CP, click power settings click custom power profile and set all that to OFF, do not turn off screen ever. XP to now.
  • did you look in this CP control panel, DM monitor list>?
  • see my monitor, its there and not bad, if it shows bad .
  • if f1903 is missing there then your OS does not support it.
  • Right click it (internet must be connected) and say up date driver and let W10 find your driver for your OLD monitor.
  • Did you know MS drops old hardware that the maker does not support now? this is all in the PnP rules sets. but on monitors there are magic tricks to fool the system if true. this.

vga-eqk4kg0rieheuxmlwixke1cc-1-0.jpg does your monitor work on others PC, with same OS
do tell that.
does your pc work with other monitors. bingo>?
is that hard to do find another VGA port, to try, ? on someone elses PC, we cant do that here, so..... only you can do that.
hp supports it
and has this program to run and test your display

last and best
ever call up BIOS?
boot pC and hit the BIOS key, called BIOS settings menus.
(HP F1,F9,10, or ESC) hint , it prompts you at boot.
does that work? omg it does so VGA is ok. right. 99% sure.
all in 5min work. you see it works
and then dies in windows x (what ever your X is)
if it dies in windows, here is the cause, (all causes)

VGA card is not bad, or overheated. bios works
1: windoz is virus infected tops that list. endless, to a fault.
2: PNP to dead, it plug and played, and killled the monitor driver or vGA driver, (less much less in w10,)
3: bad video drivers. (if hp get them from HP !)
4: internet dead, cant run PNP with no internet. not and win.
5: newer system DT< with expensive video cards the power jack cables fell off (this is only on high powered DT, like a Ausu M5a90x.
5b same deal video fan dead. overheated now.
6: PC goes to sleep, and is not anything to do with WINDOWS sleep
did you know the CPU has a sleep mode, it shuts down overheated.
some GPU do the same using the same magic hidden electronics in the GPU

if you had told what PC it was, id not have to broad band my answers. im sure i missed more,,, lacking
PC tag words.
or OS name and build.
