Question about Compaq V700 17" CRT Monitor
I am trying to fix a friend's computer and suddenly the monitor went into sleep mode (aas indicated by the light on the monitor) and I can't get it to reawaken. Is it dead? I have looked for a reset button and cannot find one. thanks for your help. Sandy
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.
