This could be a multitude of things. Firstly, check the connections from your computer to your monitor, unplug them and plug them back in, make sure the thumb screws that connect your monitor to your computer and nice and tight but dont use a tool to tighten them, hand tight is good enough.
If that doesnt work, then check that your graphics car hasnt been unseated from its slot, TURN OFF THE POWER to your pc, open the case and look at the graphics card inside. Push it straight back against the slot and that might help.Try connecting the monitor to another computer, although I dont think its a monitor problem. or borrow a monitor from another computer and try it. If that doesnt help then you can try a different graphics card, if you dont have one they are readily available from most major electorincs stores, or even most supermarkets with an electronics dept. Now if you do all this and it doesnt fix it then you will need to find a tech to have a look at it, Like I said at the beggining it could be a multitude of sins, a hardware error stopping the computer from booting and that requires a little technical knowledge

Is your computer connected via the HDMI cable? If not pull up menu and change to another input type. If it is HDMI, check cable ends. You can test by plugging into a Blue ray player and see if video plays on monitor as a test method to verify video coming from computer incase your video card has died for some reason..
Your monitor is going into sleep mode since it can not see an HDMI signal coming across the input. Check your cable though.. sounds like the biggest culprit to me.

Pc sleep mode wont wake up


Try plugging in another working screen with a new cable, and if it didn't work then it might be your Graphic card (built in) (and does your screen work only when u turn on your computer for 5 sec or all the time its black screen?)

Everytime I turn on moniter it goes into sleep mode and won't wake up!!


If there was something wrong with the monitor itself it wouldn't go to sleep it would just turn off. It sounds to be as if there is an issue with the signal going to the monitor itself, try restarting your PC and ensure that the connection on the back of the monitor and the connection on the back of your PC are secure.

Monitor will not awake from sleep mode. Pilot light is amber when asleep. If the monitor is turned off pilot light goes from amber to off or black or nothing. Turning the monitor back on the pilot light...


That means your monitor is not receiving a signal from your video card.

A couple things to check:
*Make sure your cable is ok - unplug and replug the cable to see if it is a loose connection. Or try a different cable.

*Make sure your computer is not in sleep mode - Move your mouse or otherwise ensure your computer is awake and sending a video signal

*If you have another computer, try the monitor on the other system and see if it works.

Be sure computer is actually starting. Power off then on computer you should see the boot sequence and then windows screen on monitor. If you do not see startup sequence monitor is not sleeping either the monitor has failed or the video card has failed. Try another monitor first.

AOC Monitor says "no signal" and won't wake up!


This monitor refuses to wake up because it cannot find the signal from the computer.

When the light is amber, force the pc to shut down by holding the power button until all lights go off. Then, after about 10 seconds, power the pc back up again.

If this does not start your monitor, unplug all the monitors connections and plug them back in again. These things should reform the connection from the pc to the monitor.

good luck

Works when it wants to then turns whie with grey line in it


Hi

If only the monitor is going to sleep, then it could be a problem with the connection from the monitor to the computer or with the cable.

If the computer goes to sleep and if you are not able to wake it from sleep then check the sleep mode settings and also the power management settings for the keyboard and mouse.
You may also do a system restore if you are not able to wake the computer from sleep.

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