Hi Snandy, I absolutely despise monitor and computer sleep or hibernation modes. Before I started routinely disabling this on all the computers I supported my users were always having problems no matter how computer literate they were. I know this sounds simplistic and you may have already done it but have you just unplugged the monitor? If that doesn?t work maybe the PC itself has gone to sleep as well. Try moving the mouse, hitting a keyboard key. If that doesn?t work try pushing the power button on the computer to turn it on. If all else fails pull the power plug on the computer itself, plug back in and it should start up. I would suggest disabling all of this via Windows Power settings in the control panel. Let us know if you have any other questions and again please don?t forget to rate the post.

    Some questions:
    -What exactly lead to this condition? Details are good....
    -What is the monitor doing, led wise? Why do you believe it has gone into sleep mode?
    -If you power the computer down and back up again what happens? Does it appear to boot correctly?

My compaq presari0 v5000 is in sleep mode and will not wake up

The problem's with the video card or the vga cord; the monitor is just reacting to no signal from the graphics card. Check that the pins aren't bent. If they are, you can possibly straighten them once. The second time, they may snap off.

Since the KB just flashes once, it could be the power supply, or the motherboard. If the motherboard has any caps that are swollen on top or leaking, you might need a new motherboard.

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".

Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

Compaq Presario stuck in sleep mode

Connect the monitor to some other computer, e.g., a notebook, and see if it does the same thing. If it does, then the monitor is the problem.
If it does not, then your computer is not putting-out any "video" signal, and so the monitor goes to "sleep".

If you have MORE than one VGA-output port on your computer, connect your monitor to the "other" VGA port.

Or, press-and-hold the ON/OFF button on your computer, to force it to completely shutdown.

Can't switch on monitor screen

You must go into the BIOS of you computer and turn off the sleep mode and also in windows. Disconnect the monitor and power it on without hooking it up to the computer. If the monitor turn on and is working , then hook it up to the computer and try with with the sleep controls off to see if it works correctly.If this works you must check the owners manuals of the motherboard and monitor for the correct operation of the sleep mode functions.Then reinstall the sleep mode operation and see if everything works correctly. If the monitor fails to work. Try the monitor on another computer and see if it will function. If all this fails to get the monitor working , then you will need to have the monitor tested in a service center to find the problem and have it repaired. You should also check your computer on another monitor just to maker sure you don not have a problem with the computer too. Hope this helps you with your problem.

My compaq presario 5000 (5WV286)will not exit sleep mode.when i power up my computer the yellow light stays on my monitor. when i hooked my monitor to another computer the monitor works fine.The key board...

it looks like port on your PC where monitor connected gone bad, now you can double check this connecting your PC to another spare monitor not the one which is already working, even one more thing sometimes it does happen that cable you are using with your PC might not be passing good enough signal to the port , I know same monitor works on other machine but we want to find out actual port back on your PC so its worth second option to try another cable.

but if another monitor or cable swap doesn't work then that means display connection port gone bad, you might need to consider changing graphics card.

update me if any problem or if you have more questions regarding this.

thanks.

Regards,

AJoshi

Viewsonic E53 monitor

Base on the information given to me.

I think your computer is on sleeping mode.

first thing check if the video cable is not loose connecting the pc.

because what would happend, if it is loos it would turn on and off at times.

The other thing you can do.

right click on the desktop.
go to properties
go to screen saver
click on power

adjust the time you want your monitor to shut off.
