Monitor help...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So i've been having a problem with my monitor lately.
(this problem happened on my old Computer which was totally different tower)


recently, when i stop using my computer, i usually just shut off the monitor and leave the computer running.

When i come back to use the computer after work, the monitor wont get signal.

Usuaully i hae to press a button or click the mouse so the monitor knows that the computer isnt idle anymore, but it's just been going from VGA to HDMI back and forth for about a minute.

Then it just stays black and my monitor power button flashes.
I then have to restart my computer, leaving any idle messages from messengers not seen
(which is very annoying)


I thought this would be a gpu problem or somthing, but it's happened on 2 different towers.. anyone have a clue what to do?

It might be a monitor problem though since it happened on two different towers which I suppose weren't exactly identical. What I advice you to do to make sure is to set one of the towers you wanna test on with the "high performance" power profile (start/control panel/Power...). This would prevent the GPU entering power saving modes, so it should make the monitor the only possible culprit if it still happens.
I would also try a different VGA cable (or DVI/HDMI, whatever you use)thumb.gif

This had happened to me but with a different scenario. Does your monitor have a source button on it?
If so try hitting that thumb.gif

Bump... i found out the problem ( i think)

it Seems like my keyboard and mouse arn't "connecting" with the tower anymore. So it i hit any button, it wont send...

Example: If i press caps lock or scroll lock, the light on my keyboard doesnt come up, leading me to believe the keyboard isnt working?

Are you sure it isn't a problem with the computer going to sleep?

This sounds a lot like the sleep problem that some people have with SSDs. Do you have a SSD?
