Hi armstrongmac - I can help you out with that. If your running Windows, go to start>control panel>performance and maintenance>power options. There you can set the monitor to turn off after you haven't used the pc for x amount of time. Just moving the mouse or pressing a key will bring it back on.
If your running Vista, go to your search box, type control panel, then click on power options and you'll be able to do the same thing. If this answers your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks and have a great day.

Last night I cut my computer off and it froze on the shutting down screen so I held down the power button and it cut off. Now when I cut it on the light on the monitor is orange. It's Gateway 817GM. Help?


1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

Dell dimension 370 randomly shuts down orange light flashes on pwr button


I suspect your graphics card or processor is overheating and shutting itself off to prevent damage.

Cool the unit down with additional fans, introducing cool air and exhausting warm air is key to a reliable, stable computer system.

The reason for this sudden problem is most likely because a higher resolution on the new monitor is supported, therefore making the computer work much harder than before.

Take care!

Monitor works intermittently


Hi Michael, it does sound like the monitor then. The most likely cause is bad capacitors in the power supply. Typically a cheap repair but you do have to solder and such. Unless you have to have a very expensive monitor its probably better to just replace it since basic monitors are so cheap these days. Good luck.

Monitor won't turn on without help.


Do you have a second monitor or can you borrow one to check if the fault lies with the monitor or the PC?

If the monitor is at fault then there is not much you can do yourself. I suggest you contact Dell and get them to replace it under warranty. Most LCD monitors have a 3 year warrantly, at least they do in the UK.

Sound Cutting Out


If you looked for dry connections and found none, there is probably a componet that is intermittant, and these can be tough puppies to troubleshoot, without monitoring the power supply voltages and sittinfg with the unit.
