My gateway dx4300-03 starts up fine and then about 5 minutes into working the monitor goes blank and the computer seems to go into sleep mode and won't restart until I unplug from the back and re plug in. ...


By Cyclontech!

Hi, The solution to fix the problem is by changing your power supply. Just make sure that you replace it with a 500W or higher and not with the same 300W which does not have enough power for this system, plus it is defective. I have changed the power supply to 4 diferent gateway PCs same model dx4300. And all 4 are working perfect. And run a check disk on CMD to fix the disk errors that were created every time you unplugged it and turned it on again.

My computer monitor keeps shutting off randomly for no reason. It isn't the sleep function I've already checked that and it happens when you are in the middle of using the system. I am running xp


Click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click Power Options.

Now you will see Power option Properties.
Now see the Settings for normal power scheme.

Under this Make sure that the options like Turn off monitor should be set on never and not on After 5 mins or 15 mins

After changing the settings hit on the apply button and then click on ok.

My monitor turns off every 2 minutes, even when you re power the monitor it will just shut down randomly. anybody knows whats wrong with it? and how much it will cost for repairs?


does it always shut down every 2 minutes? or is it "random" like you said? i ask because it can be configured to turn off as desired (that is if it is not used).

Monitor turns itself off


hi, you must have enabled power saving options. Thats why your monitor shut down. you can disable, just do the same:

1.Right click on desktop
2.Select properties.
3.Select "ScreenSaver".
4.Select "Power" under Monitor power option.
5.There select "never" from Turn off monitor (drop down menu).

Now your monitor will not turn off automatically.

Monitor randomly shuts off and computer restarts


After you turned it on and the screen shut off, check the image on the screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If the computer shut down immediately after the monitor shut off, it might be because of fault operating system. Check with another monitor.
Thank you,
