Monitor slow to wake up


A computer uses sleep mode to save power and save certain key functions so that users can resume work quickly without waiting for the computer to completely restart.
There are usually at least two types of sleep modes: an ordinary mode in which the current state of the computer is kept operational, and a deeper hibernation in which current settings are saved to the hard drive.
When a computer does not leave the sleep mode, there is most likely a problem with power settings.
Power Button Use

Some sleep modes, especially the hibernation modes, remove the ability for the computer to sense outside movement.
If the user puts the computer into hibernation, then typing on the keyboard or moving the mouse will not wake it, even if these actions work in a light sleep mode.
The only way to wake the computer up is to press the power button.

Power Settings
Computers have power settings that tell them when to perform certain actions, including powering down and going into sleep mode.
Normally, computers will do this automatically when they have low battery power, but if the settings are changed it is possible the computer will only exit sleep mode when connected to a power adapter.
Users can change power settings themselves to more appropriate levels, if necessary.

BIOS Settings In BIOS (basic input/output system) mode, a PC shows not only the last actions that triggered the computer to go into sleep mode, but also what wakes the computer up from sleep mode.
Typically several devices, including keyboard and mouse movement, are listed.
However, if the computer is not programmed to wake up from sleep mode when these devices are used, it will stay unchanged. Users can add or remove devices from the BIOS system itself.

Vista Problems
Microsoft Vista has been known to develop several errors associated with the ability of the computer to wake up once it has gone into sleep mode.
If the user has Vista, it is possible an internal error, possibly connected with the USB ports, has caused the computer to remain in sleep mode.
Users can fix these malfunctions by downloading "hotfixes" from Microsoft's website.

Video Card or Screen Problems
If the monitor refuses to wake up from sleep mode but all settings appear applicable, then the problem could be with the video card or the screen itself.
In this case, the computer is resuming activity but the monitor cannot show it, so it looks like it is still asleep.
The user should make sure the monitor is working properly and make sure the video card is not malfunctioning.


You should also check ram Hard Drive & vga lead
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty
if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy have secure connections and are not faulty
even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems
computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
Check your RAM.
The RAM is located in the middle of the motherboard.
There are tabs that you can push to release the RAM.
Remove it and put it back in place until the tabs pop out.
Loose RAM can cause your computer not to start properly where you want to see a video signal.
Remove the memory modules from their slots.
Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors.
Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth.
Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components.


Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r
Allow the pins to dry.
They will air dry in a matter of minutes.
Make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket
if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free
Restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard
Check the vga lead for secure dust free connection or try another vga lead.

Hi,

Have a look at your power options through control panel.

Set the computers display, hard drive to never turn off. also disable sleep mode.

If you have all these settings already set to this then whoever told you that the graphics card is overheating could be right.

The only other thing i could suggest is to update you display drivers through the manufacturers website.





Good luck.

Monitor goes to sleep when booting up


Boot into your BIOS usually del or the f2 key, check what your setting is for your video output, it is more than likely outputting the video through the onboard video and not to your video card.

Sounds like the computer is coming from sleep, standby or hibernation mode. Go to the power settings in the control panel, and disable all of these options. Disable your screen saver as well. Leave the machine on for a day and see if it happens again after this. Post your findings, please...

Resource Conflict - PCI network controller slot 03 and 04


I had this problem for almost a year. One day I decided to put it back t factory default, it work for a week and then the Error message pop again at boot. I installed windows 7 CR and after a week of working fine, same thing happen. I open my laptop, check everything, clean it, and nothing. Until I found the by pressing really hard on the slot where the conflict was, it work 9 out of 10 times I started my laptop. On my Acer the Slot 3 Conflict is where the memory card reader is, or atleast that is what I though. After taking my laptop to an IT Tech, he discovered that the Slot 3 was right next to the wireless network card, and by pressing the area reallu hard the computer will start 95% of the time. But when I say really hard, I mean really hard, as a matter of fact, while trying we even crack the bottom case.

The solution was one of two options:
1. Acer motherboard in certain models, it was defected, and it was known within the puclic, prompting the same Error Conflict that I have, so we would have to get a new Motherboard ($120) or

2. Take all the OS out of the computer, and Install an Linux OS like (Ubuntu-free) you might ask yourself why?

Because Ubuntu doesn't depend on the hardware to function. Windows does. Ubuntu is a self dependable OS, Unlike Windows.

#2 was my solution, it's been alamost 6 months and I never had the probelm again.
