Try it on a different computer. Standy usually indicates not getting a signal from the video card and then it goes into standy. If it works on a different machine or laptop, check your video card.

    I would still advise plugging the monitor into another system. If you've got a laptop handy, most nowdays have an external monitor interface, try it on that. If it doesn't come up on that machine it's prob the monitor itself, and it's cheaper these days to replace it than repair.

15 inch lcd monitor Benq Model Q5T3 has a blank screen has power but screen just black. Can let it sit for a while and sometimes it will stay on for a few minutes but goes black again Thanks


It could either be a driver issue on your system, or a problem with your video card. Turn off the computer, open the case, remove the video card, re-seat it in the slot securely, close up the system and power it back on. If the problem still happens, update the display adapter driver, if it still happens, try a different video card or monitor. You could even test your monitor by plugging it into a system that you know doesn't have this issue.

Monitor stuck in standby


Try tapping F8 when booting and then choose 'safe mode with networking'
if this works go to the lcd manufactures web site and look for a specific driver for your screen.

The monitor doesn't go on. the orange standby light blinks on and off. is there a reset?


Sounds like the issue is with your video card/onboard video chip or the connection between the monitor and the pc. Verify the cable from the monitor is connected to the pc firmly & snugly. See if the monitor gets a picture on a known working pc. If so, then it's a (relatively) simple fix - work on the videocard - if add-in, try reloading drivers, ensure the onboard video is disabled in the BIOS, or (worst case) replace the video card. If it's onboard, again, try replacing/updating drivers and, if that fails your next step is to either get an add-in video card, or replace the mobo.

The buttons in the front of my monitor broke. is there an alternative to adjusting the settings besides through that?


Hi.

There's a way, if your video card support advanced properties like having a control panel from the installed drivers like NVidea cards. If not have the button fixed to a repair shop... they'll just have to replace the button or make a remedy to make it work...

That's all... don't forget to rate... good luck...

It does not hate that monitor. I believe the problem is in the settings on your video. Your monitor cannot display them. You will most likely need to start your computer in safe mode and change the display settings on your video card or, alternatively, download updated video drivers. Also, if you can't get Windows to start in normal or safe mode, one of the options you get when you press F8 on startup is to start in VGA mode. That will get you in so you can tweak your settings, which are probably set to a resolution too high for your monitor.

Digital power saving mode


check your monitor power settings.

right click on your desk top then left click on 'properties' in the white box that appears.

this will bring up a 'display properties' box which should have a tab headed 'screen saver' amongst others.

select the screen saver tab.

in this tab there are 2 sections. one to select which screen saver you want to use (and what settings are applied to it), and another section which should be called 'monitor power'.

click the button here which says 'power...' to adjust your power settings.

in the next window there are 4 tabs. select the first tab (power schemes - which should be already selected by default) and you now have 4 options. leave the selected 'power scheme' in the top of the window as it is and just alter the settings for the selected power scheme.

your 4 options are: 'turn off monitor', 'turn off hard disks', 'system standby' and 'system hibernates'  i would recommend setting all of these to 'never', and don't forget to click the 'apply' button after you've done this.

i would also recommend disableing hibernation in the 'hibernate' tab (this is in the same window as the power schemes tab).

once you've adjusted your power settings, don't forget to activate one of your screen savers.  this is only important if you leave the monitor on for a long time with no changes taking place in terms of what is being displayed. if you leave a static image on for hours you will end up with permanent screen burn. (a ghost image that is always there - even when the monitor isn't switched on!).

i don't bother with screen savers personally as i find them annoying, and find it much easier to simply turn the monitor off whenever i'm not going to be using it for the next hour or more.

hope that solved your problem. apologies if it doesn't.

by the way, the tabs etc i described are what i have on my OS (windows XP pro) and may be named differently if you're using a different version of windows.  the 'power options' settings will still be accessible via 'screen saver' tab in desktop properties though.

good luck!
