Question about HP Pavilion F1703 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Stuck in "sleep mode"

I recently unhooked my entire PC. When putting everything back together I started to have a problem with my monitor. The monitor seems to be getting power but says "monitor going to sleep" and then shuts itself off. Did I hook something up wrong?

    I turned my monitor off, then when i turned it back on it says monitor going into sleep mode and the light turns yellow. I've tried F8 but nothing happens, I've tried right clicking but also nothing, I've unplugged everything and turned everything off/on but no results. Any ideas??????

    Thanks

    I have the same problem. The computer seems stuck in sleep mode. If I disconnect the monitor cable, monitor says "check connection", otherwise, it just says "going to sleep" and goes to amber. When started, the fan runs and lights come on, but I don't think it boots. "number lock" and other such lights on keyboard won't come on.

    I moved my HP Pavillion M7750N Media Center and can't wake the 22 inch HP monitor up at all.... I had this problem when I first bought the computer about a year ago - however, it would turn on when booted then, but if I left the computer alone for more than 10 minutes, it was in permanent sleep mode.... I've relocated and set it back up, and the monitor says no input signal then goes to sleep - I can't do anything with drivers, etc., because I can't access the computer at all - I've tried holding the source button and get "monitor going to sleep" icon.... any suggestions? Thanks.

A possible fix would be to go into the bios and select "standard settings" or something close to that statement,then re-boot the system
hope this will help

good luck

Double check connectors to the monitor at the back of the computer (if there is more than 1 check the correct one is being used) and also the back of the monitor. Try using a spare cable if you have one to eliminate that problem too.

It does seem like a mechanical fault rather than a software fault as you should get something even if it is only the bios start up screen!

When i turn on it goes start to pc entering power saving mode


Are you sure it isn't the monitor entering powersave mode?
An unhooked monitor (especially flatscreen DELLs ) will go into powersave mode if it isn't getting a signal but is getting power.

First unplug and then replug your monitor. Both ends of the cord, the end in the back of the monitor (if it comes out at all) and the end that plugs into the computer.(unplug it from the wall first)

Reboot computer.

If that fails...(and you do have a video card)

Unplug everything from the computer, open the box, ground yourself by touching the metal frame of the computer case and reseat your video card....you may have to undo one screw to get it out.
DON'T drop the screw into the case!

Put it all back together and try again.

If that all fails Boot Windows (windows right?) into safe mode and change the power settings for the monitor...perhaps something got changed or broken by an update.

If that fails....

Get Linux.

97 saturn sl2 died while driving , pulled first spark plug boot and found filled with oil


The head gasket needs replaced. This particular Saturn is known for having this exact problem, and 9 out of 10 times, replacing the head gasket fixes it. I just did it myself for $35.

Go to checker/autozone and get a head gasket (should just need the gasket and not the entire kit) and a tube of RTV silicon grease to help make the seal.

Unhook everything from the engine (plugs, wires, etc, and unscrew the head. There should be about 10 or so screws surrounding the black plastic head cover. You'll find things a mess in here, but clean it up best you can. Remove the old gasket and clean the entire gasket area completely and make sure its dry. Put down your RTV grease, the new gasket, some more RTV, and screw the head back on. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T SCREW IT TOO TIGHT. The screws only need to be snug. Tighten it like you would a spark plug. Put everything back together and you should be good to go. Might run like **** the first half mile or so.

Hi,

You can try removing external devices like (ex. usb printer, external Hard drive) and try to start the computer again. And see if there are lights on the tower

Screen is tinged yellow


It sounds like you're going to need a new VGA/DVI cable. (from PC to monitor)
I suggest you try another one, then post back here if it doesn't fix the problem.

I hope this helps,
