Question about ASUS P7P55DE Pro Motherboard

1 Answer

When we have our computer left on long enough, the screen saver never comes on. Instead, the screen turns black. When we move the mouse or press the spacebar, our background shows up, but there are no icons on the desktop. The only way we can make them appear again is by powering off the computer without shutting it down properly, and then turning it back on. How can we prevent this from happening?

How to get the acer description to quit automatically coming on while computer is idle?


Hello, maybe it's on your screensaver, so to change or disable your screensaver, move your mouse pointer to a blank part of the desktop.
Right-click the mouse button, and scroll down to 'properties'. Left-click on 'properties'. This opens up 'display properties' . You will see some tabs along the top of this box, select 'Screen Saver' and you will see a screen saver drop-down box. Make a mental note of the current settings and try selecting a different one.Then left-click 'Apply' , then 'OK'

My Imac crashes. 10.6.4, 2 GB ram, 2 GHz core duo. I've started with a clean install and disabled (one by one) all start up apps. Out of the clear blue, the screen will go black & I have to turn it...


When you say "screen goes black," does the computer power down, or is it still operating? Does the sleep light come on? Does it respond to the keyboard and mouse? (Example: press the power button momentarily, wait a few seconds for the "Do you really want to shut down" message to appear, even though you can't see it, then hit the return key to answer "OK," and see if it shuts down.) Does the screen go black or come out of black if you tap the computer?
While your computer is working, go to System Preferences / Desktop & Screen Saver, the Screen Saver tab, click Hot Corners, and set a corner of your screen to Put Display to Sleep. Then next time your screen goes black, mouse your way into that corner, pause a few seconds, then mouse back out and see if your screen returns.

If I leave my computer unattended for maybe 15 min. this monitor turns itself off. Is there a way to fix that? Thanks, brumeister



Screen savers can help protect your monitor from wear by showing a constantly changing display when your computer is not being used. Screen savers can be simple, like the Blank screen saver that turns off your monitor to save energy. To change your screen saver 1. Right-click your desktop, and then click Properties.
2. In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Screen Saver tab.
3. Click the Screen saver drop-down box, and then click a screen saver.
4. Click the Preview button to see how the screen saver will appear on your monitor.
5. Move your mouse or press a key to return to the Display Properties dialog box. To try a different screen saver, return to step 3. 6. Click the Settings button to change the standard behavior of the screen saver you selected. (Each screen saver has its own settings dialog box.) Then, click OK.
7. In the Wait box, type the number of minutes the computer should wait to start the screen saver after you last touched the keyboard or mouse.
8. If you are the only person who uses your computer and you are not concerned about security, clear the On resume, display Welcome screen check box. Otherwise, leave this check box selected. Note: If your computer is joined to an Active Directory, the Fast Users Switching feature will be disabled. This is a common change made to computers used for business, and it happens automatically when a computer joins an Active Directory domain. However, disabling the Fast User Switching feature is not the default setting. Almost all computers in home environments will have Fast User Switching enabled. When Fast User Switching is enabled, you'll see the On resume, display Welcome screen check box. If you're part of a domain, you'll see the On resume, password protect check box.
9. Click OK.

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.

Screen issue


Boot to Safe-Mode by pressing the "F8" key several times when you first see the windows logo screen. Answer "yes" to enter safe mode. "Right click" on "My Computer", select "Manage", then "Device Manager". Expand "Display Adapter" by clicking on the "+ sign" on the left side of Display Adapters. Highlight the Adapter listed under the Display Adapter line by "left clicking" on it. Then press the "right mouse button" and select "uninstall" to uninstall the display adapter. Now reboot you system (not safe mode) and see if it works. The display text may be very large now. If it works, you need to find your drivers cd that came with the computer and install the video driver using the above procedure but selecting "update driver" instead of "uninstall"
