My HP W1907 monitor works fine until I try to play The Sims 3 game. I play for several minutes or hours and the monitor shows the message that it is going to sleep and the light on the monitor goes...


Hi there. I had the same problem months ago when I try to play high end games like Sims 3 my monitor goes into power saving mode. I tried to check every possible causes of the problem. It could be that your computer is overheating try to clean your computer and check if your fans still works. Second it could me your power supply malfunctioning, maybe it does not meet the required power to make your game work. Last cause is your video card malfunctioning, what I did is to just buy a new video card and it works.
If you do not have spare power supply or video card you can go to a computer repair shop for them to check the possible problem that causes it to go into power saving mode. It can also save you money before you can buy a new one.
Hope this helps, Have a good day!

My normal browsing of the internet works fine. But I play world of warcraft. Here for the past few days I have issues with my monitor just going to sleep for no reason. I have to shut down my comp and...


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.

Gateway monitor fpd2185w goes to sleep and then shuts off


I suggest to mess around with the monitor buttons and see if you can disable it from sleeping from there. If not then try enabling it to sleep on your computer settings. A good restart after any changes is always helpful.

You have an incompatability between the drivers and Windows. Uninstall the games. Is everything all right now? Upgade your video and sound drivers. You can download these from the manufacturers web site. Now reinstall the games.

No signal


This sounds like your Video card might not be compatible with the game you are playing. You might need a better video card. Before you do anthing else, check to see if your computer is fast enough to play it.

Big games can crash slow computers, also it could just be a bad monitor.

Try checking the cord between the monitor and the computer.

Monitor goes to sleep and won't wake up


Yeah, im not sure about how to fix the problem with it shutting down like that, but one option is to go under your control panel and taking off the sleep function, or putting it on a 4 hour timer so that doesnt go into sleep mode anymore. However, the problem is not your monitor but your computer. Id just take the sleep mode off, there is no need to have it on.
