Dear Sir/Madam,

I think this is setting problem. Check the monitor setting Use “blank screen” as a screen saver option. This option will be removed. If it not clear the problem plese follow these steps to solve the problem...

1) Right click on your desktop or background, go to properties>appearance tab>advanced. Now select “window” in the list and select a light gray color instead of white. Play around with schemes, use your creativity. Refer to the article

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;en-us;q307855

checked following things

* CRT monitor consumption vis-à-vis LCD monitor consumption
* Brightness settings varied 0, 50, 100
* Contrast settings varied 0, 50,100
* Screen background changed black, gray, white
* Soft power off (off using power settings of computer) and hard power off (off using switch) consumptions.

2. If your computer allows power setting control (all laptops usually do), then change power settings to “turn monitor off” after 2-5 minutes. These setting are usually accessible somewhere around screen saver settings

3.Reduction brightness settings, increase contrast settings. This also be checked.

Thanks

This sounds like the blue screen of death that happens to computers many times. This is a feature built in to protect your computer. The problem can come from many things such as your RAM cards to software. Can you do a system restore while in safe mode and restore to a day before this happened. Please update me on your situation of whether you can do this. Thanks

Could be a problem with either the display driver/card or the RAM.

Try reinstalling the display driver, hopefully this will resolve the issue..

I have a windows vista which keeps having blue screen and is unable to be turned on sometimes after the blue and i have to wait for a while to be able to switch it on again. any ways to fix it ? thanks


Look at the power settings. The system may be going to sleep, the hard drive shutting down, display blanking by the computer and the monitor itself all can play a part in your problem.

The delay in recovering from sleep in considerable, hybernate is worse, meaning delay.

Windows Vista


What you need is Disable and Turn Off ClearType Fonts in Windows Vista

Windows Vista by default applies ClearType effect to the fonts displayed on screen, in order to improve the appearance of text on certain types of computer display screens, especially LCD flat-panel monitors. As ClearType text actually sacrifices color or chrominance details aspect of image quality for light and dark or luminance detail, some people may not like the blurry font style in ClearType. Here’s a easy way to disable or turn off ClearType in Windows Vista.

1. Right click on any blank spot of desktop, and then select Personalize on pop-up context menu.
2. Select Window Color and Appearance.
3. Click on “Open classic appearance properties for more color options” link located at the bottom of the page.
4. Click on the Effects button.
5. Do one of the following:

Uncheck (untick) the “Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts” box.

or

Select “Standard” to replace ClearType in the drop down list under the above title.
6. Click OK, then click Apply, and finally finish with clicking OK again.

To enable or turn on ClearType effect again, simply reverse the setting in the Effects step.
