I think your monitor is dead you could send in for service but a second hand one would probably be cheaper.

Emachine ET1161-05 desktop...monitor keeps going to sleep...comes back on only if i move the mouse...very annoying, i don't want my monitor to ever go into sleep mode...pls help


This may be something that Windows (or the computer is telling Windows) to do. Everyone wants to reduce the power consumption in the computer, so be default your monitor may be going into 'sleep' mode and turning off.
1) To change this, RIGHT click on the Windows desktop. 2) When the menu appears, select PROPERTIES, then select the SCREEN SAVER tab. 3) There are 2 things to check here. First at the top, make sure that your screen saver is selecting something beside BLANK. This will cause the monitor to blank out and appear to have turned off. 4) The second thing to check is the POWER settings. Click the POWER button at the bottom on the screen. 5) Now, you will see 2 rows of power options, one for when the computer is plugged in (which is all the time with your desktop) and the other is when on batteries. We're concerned with the PLUGGED IN settings. 6) Make sure the TURN OFF MONITOR setting is set for NEVER. This will ensure that your monitor never turns off on you. 7) Now click OK and OK and now your monitor shouldn't turn off on you.
Hope this response helps you out.
Best of luck!

My monitor keeps going black.. so I shut off the switch on the monitor; then turn it back on; then its ok.. but after sometimes just a few seconds it does it again... goes black again.. sometimes its...


Under display settings, it's best to use default theme like vista or xp theme. You can also go to screensaver, then power options and set how long it takes for monitor to shut off. I also recommend updating the video card drivers.

Completley blank screen on boot up


you didnt mention the brand of the screen. this may be a input issiue if it has DVI and Svga and so on. check the menu to see if the monitor can be shifted to the other source. take the cable off and make sure no pins are loose or bent. then put cable back on. if you have another monitor try this cable on the other monitor and verify this cable is working. if it is may be the monitor. does the monitor work on different computer? if so check the back side of the computer, if desk top there may be another input for another VGA. some people overlook the port 2 where they can have dual screens. and only 1 is used for boot up info. try connecting to the other port if so. if the other port is DVI then hopefully you have a dual cord if not Ebay can get you a converter for 5-8 bucks. If you are luck enough to have a card with dual ports on the card generally only one port will work unitl you plug in the second monitor then reboot.

Screen goes black. the power light is on, but the picture goes out. if i turn the power off, then on again it comes back for about 5 seconds, then goes black again.


Check to see if this problem follows in safe mode. Reboot and when the Dell splash screen comes up tap F8 until you see the multiboot options. Scroll to "safe Mode with Networking" let the machine boot up and see if you have a screen. If you do, right click on the desktop and set the resolution to 800 X600 and reboot normally. Usually when a screen goes blank in normal mode but shows up in safe mode means you have an incompatible resolution for the monitor or graphics adapter. This may be a driver issue or hardware. If the screen boots up in normal mode at the lower resolution, then try and go to properties again and bump the resolution up a bit, if it blanks again, try to go online and update the driver for the graphics chip.

Black blank screen Lenovo 3000 N100


You say the laptop all of a sudden flashed off.

How old is the laptop? You may have suffered one of two things? First of all, if the hard drive will not boot back up, even after using the recovery discs, then that would explain it powering off. I have seen this happen on old desktop hard drives.

Next, try to get the transformer or adapter tested. It may not be putting out enough amperage to run the laptop.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


Monitor is bad for sure. Try another known good monitor on your computer and if the problem stops then you know for sure the original monitor is bad. Hope this helps.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


do you have an aftermarket video card. In the bios you have to tell the computer if it is looking for a agp/onboard or PCI video card. Either that or the video driver or settings are wrong Try safe mode to check

Possibly Video Card problem?


Mikolan,

That is so crazy.
You say you previously was able to see the POST screen and now you can't?
You say you switched monitors and card outputs to no avail? Is the card an ATI with an aux Molex power connector?
Is the puter actually going into standby or hibernation?
Have a boot disk? or a PE?
How about a Linux self-install distibution CD. Just kidding about that last one. Not really, you can see if the puter does respond.

Don't rule out a faulty power supply. Video card fail is usually one long, two short beeps at POST. or 8 short.
