Right click on your desktop and select properties. Then click on the screen saver tab, at the bottom you will see a button labeled power saving options click it. once in there you will see a couple of tabs modify your settings to correct your problem.

How do i get the computer out of hybrination on start up


First is to press the power button like you would normally do to power up. If the battery is too low in charge you may have to bring it up with the charger to a minimum charge so it can turn on. Another idea is to hold the power button for 5 seconds, giving it time to fully shutdown then power up normally. If that isn't the answer try removing the battery if it's a laptop and reconnecting it, connect the charger, wait a few minutes if the battery didn't have a good charge and see if it will wake up.

Some computers may not wake up in certain hibernation modes but most will if the BIOS is set for S3 hibernation mode. Obviously it does have to boot to check that.

My Emachines computer switches on fine but the screen goes into hibernation mode and says "no Signal" as if the base unit isn't switched on (but it is). It's only 2 years old and has a Acer...


Hi there,
If the machine switches on fine then it means it passed the POST process. try to unplug it from the outlet and press and hold the power button for about 20 sec to drain the flea power see if that will take the computer out of hibernation. If that doesn't work you might have to reseat the memory from it's place.
I don't think there's something wrong with the screen the fact that it displays No Signal tells that the screen is active but gets no Valid signal from the tower.
Hope this helps!

Try setting your screen saver to none. That might sole the hibernation problem. Sometimes a computer will go into hibernation if the screensaver has been on for a while.

Might be stuck in hibernation. Pull the battery and ac power for about 1 hour. Replace and try to boot. If fails, pull the battery and try to boot just off ac power.

My acer computer will turn on but wont come out of hibination mode


Some laptops have issues with Windows XPs hibernation mode. To get the computer back up again you should just hold the power button down until it shuts off completely. Some laptops won’t shut off even if you do this. When this happens you have to take the battery out to get it to turn off. Make sure it is not plugged into the wall when you do this otherwise it wont work.

Once you get the computer back running again you may want to disable hibernation if it seems like its going to keep happening. Go to Start, Settings Control Panel or Start, Control Panel and go to the Power Options icon. Change the hibernation section to never. You may want to try standby as an alternative. Standby saves all your running applications and documents into RAM while hibernate saves them to the hard drive. Hibernate uses less power from your battery, but it will take you considerably longer to get the computer back up. If you always plug the computer in then you may want to disable standby and hibernate since you really dint need them while plugged in.

Let me know if this works.

Samsung monitor


Try to plug the monitor into another computer and see if the problem reappears.

If the problem reappears - you have a monitor failure...if not, try checking the monitor connection at the computer side for bent pins or loose video card in your computer and test again.

Lastly, make sure your computer is not coming out of hibernation power mode (control panel, power settings etc).

Hope this helps!
