When I select sleep or hibernate mode - the monitor stays black...

I'm running Windows XP on a Sony XP desktop 2006. Purchased the ViewSonic 19" from Fry's and looks great. One thing that bugs me is that when I select sleep or hibernate mode, the monitor does not come back on. It stays black. Please help. Pierre

If the monitor says "no signal" then "going into sleep mode" and won't wake up - do the following: Set the Power Options to not enable hibernation on Hibernation Tab. Put the computer into sleep mode by briefly pushing the Computer's Power Button. Then bring it out of sleep by tapping "Space Bar" or "Escape" while moving the Mouse at the same time. The monitor should wake up. This method allows you to turn off the monitor power button and re-awake it without needing to restart the computer when the monitor won't wake up. Obviously be sure the monitor power button is on before you try to awake it.

Hit the keyboard keys. It is better to just turn sleep and hibernate off and just use a screen saver or tun it off.

Computer screen on, Projector off

If you are running Windows 7\8:
Leave the ViewSonic projector on.
Right click anywhere on the desktop and select "Screen Resolution".
In the display column, it will give you an option to select your computer monitor, the ViewSonic, or to clone the displays.
Select your computer monitor display only.
Shut off the ViewSonic projector.

If you are running Windows XP:
The process is basically the same except you find the settings under Control Panel > Display.

Hi. Try booting in safe mode; Press F* key as soon as you turn PC on and keep pressing until you get a screen giving you some options. Choose Safe Mode or Last Known Good Configuration.
If it allows safe mode, wait until windows loads (it will look strange to you), then go start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and select restore my computer to an earlier time. Then follow the prompts.
Because you were deleting things, I have a feeling you may have inadvertently deleted a system file or two. If you have a windows disk you could use that to repair your system, but that's the next stage.

Screen resolution changes after rebooting computer

i) my wiser advice would be, just dont mess with this bug try, reload your OS or format your Windows Xp    or reload you OS Freshlly...

   before doing this try to run antivirus, spyware scan by using an good security system(such as bit defender from microsoft, norton, avg.....) fully on your complete system(it may longer time but it is safe)

 i'm sure that this problem will not persist after this try to purchase an antivirus program to avoid any problems of such type....

Thanking you

Screen resolution changes after rebooting computer

Restart you computer in safe mode (press F8 when you turn it on) select boot with networking update your antivirus and do a full scan than scan for spyware. This might take care of the "bug" that is doing this to your computer.
