I can turn the computer on...the monitor works, everything is connected, but the computer will not pull up the screen saver screen so I can select any software. I only use it for email and can't access the internet launch. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Created a 300 picture slide show on my pc. the screen will go blank after 30 minutes and i have to hit the return key or touch the pad. Is this a sleep setting issue or kodak?

I suspect you have a screen saver set up that blanks the computer screen after 30 minutes.
If you are running Window XP, right-click your mouse on the desktop, choose Properties, from the Display Properties dialog, click the Screen Saver tab, then in the Wait box, increase the amount of time before the screen saver activates. Click the OK button when you are through.
Good luck,

Hp2338h monitor goes to sleep all the time. When turned on it displays for a couple of seconds, then message flashes that its going to sleep. Its a not graphics driver board or power saver setting,...

I've seen on a few Windows 7 machines has been the display turning off after only 15 minutes, even though I set the Turn off the Display option to Never. Weird!
You're probably reading this because you've tried changing the power plan settings to Never for everything and your monitor still turns off! This can be very frustrating and usually occurs with new installs of Windows 7, though I've seen it happen on older installs too.
In this article, I'll go through the different ways you can fix this problem. Note that if your computer is on, but the screen is showing No Signal or No Input, you should read my post on fixing blank or black screens. Now let's go through the possible solutions.
Power Options - Control Panel First, we need to make sure everything is set correctly in Power Options. Click on Start and type in power options or go to Control Panel (icon view) and then open Power Options from there.
Click on Start, then Control Panel and then Hardware and Sound, and then click on Power Options.

Click on the Change plan settings link that is next to the plan that is currently selected. In my case, the High Performance plan is selected, so I'll click on the link next to it.

First, make sure that Put the computer to sleep is set to Never. Next, change the Turn off the display setting to whatever value you want it 10,15 min etc.. You don't have to set it to Never if you don't want to. After this, click on the Change advanced power settings link.

Expand Hard disk and then expand Turn off hard disk after. Reduce the value till it gets to Never. Click OK and then click Save Changes on the Edit Plan Settings page.
Screen Saver - Control Panel The second setting you want to check is the screen saver. Go to Control Panel, click on Personalization, and then click on Screen Saver at the bottom right.

Make sure the setting is set to None. Sometimes if the screen saver is set to Blank and the wait time is 15 minutes, it'll look like your screen has turned off.

BIOS, Graphics Card, Monitor The two methods above are the most common reason why your display will turn off after a set amount of time, however, there can be other possible causes.
BIOS - On some computers, the BIOS can have power saving settings that determine how the computer sleeps. These are called sleep modes (S1, S2, S3, S4, and S5). On some computers, you'll see an option called Deep Sleep Control. You may need to disable this in order for the computer to wake up faster.
Graphics Card - If you have a high-end graphics card installed, make sure you have the latest driver and management software installed. If you go through the settings, you may find an option that puts your graphics card into lower power mode or something similar.

Monitor - Lastly, some monitors have power saving features themselves. Usually, the monitor is supposed to go into power saving mode if it doesn't detect any input (HDMI, VGA, DVI, etc), but sometimes it happens unexpectedly.

You'll have to press the buttons on the monitor to get access to the monitor settings. Those are about all the reasons I could think of for your display turning off when it shouldn't. If you have any other questions please post them here ,Best

After the Windows XP progress bar is done, the monitor goes to a screensaver, its a black screen with a blue block moving around the screen, with some kind of chinese lettering. At this point I can't...

First,turn the power off on the screen. & unplug the screen from the computer.After it's disconnected turn it on. This is to see if this screen saver thing is the monitor or the pc doing it.
The Monitor, if working correctly will say "No Signal". ONLY.
You should be able to get to the menu here.
If the Screen saver thing is only present when connected to the PC then its not the monitor but more than likely a problem with Windows XP configuration.
Here is your user manual:

If you can set up your monitor now, do so. Make sure the language part of it is set to English settings.

Monitor won't stay on

Your computer may be in screen saver mode, it has instructed the monitor to go to power saving mode, or the the monitor's video cable is not properly connected to the computer. Another possible cause of this is a locked-up or in-operative computer since the computer is what supplies the monitor with all the display data or information. Move the mouse or press a key to de-activate the screen saver or power saving mode. Check the monitor's video cable and make sure it is snugly connected to the computer. To see if the computer is operating properly, press the CAPS LOCK key on the keyboard repeatedly while checking the CAPS LOCK light. If the light is not turning ON & OFF, the computer is non-functional. Contact your computer manufacturer for help.

The montior shuts off and on

If it is doing this during normal use, try using the little control buttons on the monitor itself to navigate through its configuration menu and try to find anything about screen savers, power saving, shut down, anything like this, and disable it all. And set everything else to AUTO if available. :>)

Stuck in power saver

Try the unlock procedure: With the monitor on press and hold the "MENU button for abot five seconds and see if it resets. If that doesn't work tell me a bit more about the screen - is there any OSD (on screen display) or error messages? Is the power indicator light on? If so, what color is it? Blue indicates that that you may need to turn the brightness and contrast up...\ If it is actually in power save the indicator light will be amber. What color is it? If the light is amber and all the connections to the computer are correct and it still won't come-up then it's an internal problem and the protect circuit may be keeping the screen from lighting. Good luck... And let me know. Bill
