Question about HP L1702 17" LCD Monitor
My monitor seems to be ravelling with an unsual problem right after the item was plugged in to use for the first time. The monitor just simply stays on the sleep mode, regardless of the CPU being on.I cannot view anything. All I can see on the screen is "MONITOR GOING TO SLEEP". WHat seems to be the problem? Its a brand new monitor..
To amplify ~1 The basic computer motherboard has 'On board Graphics'- that is a graphics ability built into the system This is the 3x5 pin blue socket grouped with the USB PS2 and other sockets in a common panel under the Power Inlet. If the machine has an additional Graphics card this will be the same 3x5 socket duplicated here with a another socket. So try both. You could also check the BIOS settings Bios setting are achieved by pressing delete[ or another key - this will be shown which in the start screen] on the computer as soon as you switch on, where by a crude blue/yellow screen will come up. But you will need the hand book to hand to delve further, Rest assure I do not think it is a Monitor problem- but lack of signal from the computer.

A little more info pleas. The single most common cause of this particular problem is the monitor being plugged in to an inactive VGA socket. Most manufacturers build several models of computer based on the same base components, you will often find that your computer has both a reasonably powerful graphics card plugged in to a socket on the motherboard and a less powerful, basic graphics chip built in to the motherboard that is disabled. The reason for this is that the base model of your computer is only supplied with the basic graphics chip but if you paid for a more powerful model a more powerful graphics card was supplied that disables the basic chip. have a look at the back of your computer (the box you described as the CPU) and see if you have 2 blue sockets with 3 rows of pinholes in them, if you do your monitor needs to be plugged in to the one that is higher up and sitting horizontally. If not message back.

Tips for a great answer:
Your computer monitor or laptop screen will enter sleep mode after your computer remains idle for a set period of time. You can disable sleep mode if you prefer the screen to remain illuminated. You merely need to change a setting in the Windows Power Management properties box.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions
Click "Start" and "Control Panel".
Click "System and Security" and "Power Options". This will bring up a new dialog box.
Click the menus to the right of "Turn off the Display" and set them both to "Never". This will disable sleep mode.
