New monitor hard to wake up.

Question: New monitor hard to wake up.

I have just bought a new Samsung S24D590L monitor for my Windows 7 desktop. It is connected to the PC with a DVI out of PC and HDMI in to the monitor. I loaded the drivers from the installation CD. All is well except if I leave the room and the PC display goes off after the allotted time, it does not return as I "swish" the mouse, as the old NEC monitor did. I have to switch the monitor off and on , then the picture returns. Is there a way of restoring the "old" way of waking the monitor up ?

Preferred Solution: New monitor hard to wake up.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: New monitor hard to wake up.

According to the Samsung Manual S24D590L has an internal Off function which and I quote
*For products for the market in Europe, the Off Timer is set to automatically activate 4 hours after the product powers on. This is done in accordance with power supply regulations. If you do not want the timer to activate, go to
MENU > SETUP&RESET and set Off Timer to Off.*
You haven't said how long it was on or how long it was left but it looks as if the monitor is currently powering off and will not respond until turned on again. Check the settings and turn off the OFF timer.

Hi,I have had a problem for sometime now, after changing my graphic card from ATI9800 AIW to nVidia GS6800agp. Now when the computer is powered up to come out of standby, the system powers up but the monitor stays black and a message states "no video input". I have tried to use the latest Hyperion chipset drivers and the 84.25 (and many other versions) Forceware, but no solution. I have an MSI K8t Neo motherboard and Akasa 460W PSU. Would re-installing the monitor driver from the installation disk help? Or does anyone have any useful suggestions? Thanks for any help.

Dell e1505 runs XP MCE.

2 scenarios

1) PC is on and running. I walk away for a while or whatever and when I come back the screen won't wake back up.

2) PC is running with power cord plugged in. I unplug and screen goes black and won't respond/wake up.

In both scenarios the PC stays on and I am forced to shut down by pressing and holding the power button which I know is generally a no-no.

lastly this doesn't happen all the time. Sometimes I walk away come back and teh monitor responds fine and sometimes I unplug the power cord from the back of the laptop and monitor stays on just fine.

Dell support thought I needed to install video card driver update. Gave the support guy remote access and he messed around for like an hour and then said he updated the drivers and if it continues happening I need to send the laptop in.

Well its still happening (at least the last time I unplugged the power) and sending it in seems a bit extreme so any help would be much appreciated.

For the last month, my monitor will go into a low power state from which it does not recover. I often need to completely power down both the monitor and the computer for the monitor to come back to "life". This initially occurred when the computer went to sleep, so I disabled all the sleep/monitor off options and it still would occur. The computer would be running normally, but the monitor would be off with a faint orange light on the power button. Before this began, it would have a stronger orange signal when "asleep" and a green signal when operating normally.

I have fixed the problem by running a screen saver, but it's the middle of summer and the computer creates a pretty hot environment. Unfortunately, the problem also occurs when I manually put the computer to sleep, shut off the monitor, and occasionally when I power down the whole system. I recently ran a number of windows upgrades, including upgrading my video card driver, so I went back to the old driver, and it still occurs. Unfortunately, there were about 50 windows updates and I don't see a restore point listed for before they were installed. I assume I can uninstall each one manually, but that will be a real pain. Any thoughts on to what kind of update could do this besides a video card update?

Answer:monitor will not wake up

Provide the monitor info please, that could be a monitor issue unrelated to the rest.

I had an expensive one's power regulating croak after about 3 years, for a while it worked if you let it warm up for 20 mins or more, which is ridiculous of course, and now it's just waiting for me to take it to a dumpster, it won't even give me any picture when connected even after a long warm up and the power light goes green as if it should be working.

I'd try another monitor or HDTV if you are able and see if it works fine, if it does then monitor is busted.

LCD monitors do NOT generate a lot of heat, nor use a lot of power, normally, just FYI, Plasma screens do though.

My new HDTV (LED - subset of LCD) is rated as using $9/yr power, just example.

What a simplistic title.
I know more than that might say about me.
Firstly, I just built a new system. I think the only parts relevant to this thread would be the motherboard, video card, and monitor models, which are an Asus A8N-SLI Nforce4, an Asus Nvidia Geforce EN7600GS Silent/HTD/512MB, and a Dell E770 (although I also tried this with an unknown KDS PnP flatscreen, respectively).
For some reason, when I turn on the system all at the same time, the monitor remains in standby. To get the system working correctly, I find that I need to unplug both the monitor and PC from the power bar. Then, I need to plug the monitor in until it goes to standby, and then the PC.
Lately, the monitor won't even come out of standby when I do that.
Any insight?

Recently I've been having trouble getting my monitor out of "sleep" (power save) mode. Usually all I have to do is move the mouse and it turns back on, but over the last few days I've had to power it off and on again to get it to come back, then I had to re-boot the CPU while powering the monitor off and on...and now it will not come out of power save mode at all. Apparently the monitor is not recognizing the CPU at all.
At first I thought it was my monitor since my CPU system is less than six months old, but I connected my daughter's LCD monitor and it would not recognize the CPU either. I've unplugged my video card from the mobo, examined it (it appears to be functioning) and re-installed it, but that did nothing. I replaced the video cable, but again...nothing. Could this be a BIOS issue? The only thing I can think to do is clear the RTC memory by temporarly removing the CMOS battery.

Can anyone here suggest an alternative.

Hi all,

A strange thing is happenning and maybe someone can help.

My power is set to shut down my monitor after 1 hr. Had no problems until yesterday. The monitor will not come on! Not with the mouse nor the keyboard. All I had to do before is to touch the mouse and the sleepy orange light would turn to green and the picture would come on and now, nothing.

The only way to turn the picture back on is to restart the comp.

The only changes I made as of yesterday and that was the day before was upgrading my ZAP. Is it a mouse or keyboard problem? Is it my video card?

Can anyone help?

btw, I hope I'm in the right forum section.
 

Answer:Monitor won't wake up

This could be a hardware issue, or a software issue since you said you upgraded/installed ZAP. What is ZAP? Is that Zone Alarm Pro?

What happens when you turn your monitor off, then back on? Instead of rebooting.....

What OS are you using?

Hi, this is my first thread, so please be gentle

A little while back, I bought a custom desktop from a gamer. It has all the bells and whistle, fans everywhere, plus liquid cooling. It has a Intel quad processor and 8GB RAM. It also has 2 ATI Radeon HD3800 series graphic cards linked together. It is running Windows 7 64bit Home Premium and I have religously kept it up to date. It has been running great and, when in sleep mode and the power button was pressed, both the computer and monitor immediately woke up.

In mid Feb this year, I updated Win 7 with a number of updates. After that and, it might be a coincidence, when the computer is in sleep mode, the monitor will not wake up, even though it has been told not to sleep. In addition, if I turn off the monitor when the computer is awake and then switch the monitor back on, it remains asleep, with the power light blinking.

I have tried both digital and analogue monitors. Sometimes, after a long period, the monitor will come on and stay on. The only way that I can keep the system going is to keep both computer and monitor on all the time.

I am not and never will be a gamer, only bought it for my amateur radio activities and also that it was a good price.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

John

Answer:Monitor will not wake up

Can you do a system restore to the point before you had the monitor problem? Then you can add the updates in one by one, and see if any of them are the culprit.

When I leave my PC unattended for a while the PC stays on and the keyboard and mouse operational but the monitor shuts down. Then when I touch either the keyboard or the mouse the monitor comes on. However lately, specially when I leave the PC untouched for several hours and try to activate it, the monitor won't come on at all. The Power Light at the bottom of the monitor (Viewsonic) remains amber instead of turning blue. The only way to turn the system back on is to reboot it. Note however that if I keep the PC unattended only for an hour or two, the monitor comes on once I touch the mouse or the keyboard.

Hi friends, I recently decided to reformat my computer on which I had vista (I've done this several times before without any incidents). During the formatting, the monitor went black and showed a small window with the message "monitor goes to sleep"; neither the mouse nor the keyboard could wake it up but the computer was running normally. I waited a few hours( to allow the vista to be reinstalled from the recovery partition) and then I turned the computer off from the button. When I turned it on the first thing I saw was a line on a black screen which said that there was an error in formatting the hard disk... and nothing else. Since I could not start the formatting process again, I used an old cd with XP and tried to install xp (I assumed that formatting from a cd would erase my partition C and the recovery partition D). And here is my problem: after 10-15 minutes, during the instalation of xp, the monitor went to a deep sleep again. I left the pc running for an hour or more to let xp to install and then I turned it off. When I turned it on xp was booted but it saw only 131 gb of my 500 gb, having only one partition. After 10-15 minutes of being awake the monitor went to sleep again. I tried to change the settings for the monitor but there is no sleep option, nor hybernation, only turn off monitor and turn off pc. Somebody told me that I may have rootkits and formatting does not erase the master boot record and I should use kill disk. I did, but with the monit... Read more

Hello, I have done lots of eliminating so hopefully someone out there has the real solution for this. I have Vista Home Premium 64bit SP2. If I choose SLEEP mode it is my MONITOR that won't re-wake. When in sleep, I touch the mouse or keyboard and my CPU DOES re-wake, because I can hear the fan kick back on and the light on it lites back up, but a signal is not sent to wake the monitor. I thought it might be the video cards (I have 2 cards) so Dell replaced both under my warranty. I have made sure the video card drivers have been updated, in fact a newest published driver is only 2 weeks old. I then had Dell replace the monitor too, but that was not it either. So I have done lots of eliminating with hardware and drivers but nothing helps, so I'm thinking it has something to do with VISTA not sending a signal from the mouse/keyboard or even the CPU to tell the monitor to wake up! Even if I press the power button on the monitor, it will light up for a few seconds and then give the message "entering power save mode" and go back to black. It is like the monitor has been told 'you are in power save mode - stay there'. Lastly, another site suggested that some mice/keyboard software have an option to choose them to allow them to send a signal to wake monitor from sleep, but there is no type of choice for that on mine that I find.

I know there has to be a simple fix to this but I'm banging my head against the wall right now trying to figure this out. Everytime my PC goes to sleep I'll press a button on my keyboard or move my mouse and it will wake up just fine, but the monitor won't wake up. I've also noticed that the backlight on my keyboard doesn't show up. I've tried different monitors and removed the VGA cable from the graphics card after waking up and plugged it back in and no video. I have to reboot the computer to get video again and everything works great.. until it goes into sleep mode again. I have updated my graphics card driver (Geforce GT 210) and still no fix. I haven't made any changes that would cause this. Someone has to know something about this. Thanks in advance for any help!

Dell XPS 435 MT, running Vista 64 bit Home Premium, Radeon HD 3650 graphics card and a Dell monitor.

Over the last month or so, my monitor will not wake up after I manually put the computer to sleep. The CPU light, fan etc. comes on as well as the keyboard lights but the monitor will not come on.

I have to hold the power button in for seven seconds or so and the computer will go back into some sort of a sleep mode. Pressing the power button again, the computer will beep twice then pause and then it repeats the beep sequence. I hold in the power button to again turn it off. A single press of the power button brings the computer back to life and after a while "Resuming Window" shows up on the screen. Even when I shut the computer down, I sometimes have to hold in the power button for several seconds before the computer will boot.

I have tried several things to remedy the situation: System Restore, updating the video card driver, re-seating the video card on the mother board, restoring the Display Devices control panel (it has gone away a couple of times). I also ran the diagnostics on the Dell site and everything came up as working correctly.

Hello,

Second time posting here. 1st time was successful

The problem I've got now is that my monitor refuses to wake from standby mode anymore. Been running the system 24/7 for long time, in and out of standby, with no trouble, then it started as intermittent issue a couple of months ago and now appears to be perminently unable to wake up. I am forced to cold boot the power button on CPU and restart. I have checked power management settings - tried changing them - and still no go. The CPU will wake fine but the monitor stays in "power saving mode" (amber light on front panel). I've tried deleting the monitor in device manager and restarting but still no luck.

Any ideas? Could this possibly be a video driver issue?

Thanks

I've had my Dell monitor for about a year and it's been set to turn off after an hour. Until a couple of days ago I could move my mouse and it would come up. Now it takes a long time to "wake up" after I click the mouse.

The power settings are "turn off monitor" set at one hour; "turn off hard drives" set at one hour and "System Standby" after two hours.

I vary the monitor setting once in a while because sometimes it doesn't shut down at all.

A friend has his system standby set to "never" and swears that's the way to go.

Any suggestions about settings, etc. would be appreciated.

I recently updated my video card as well as installed a number of Windows updates. Since that time, my monitor has difficulty coming back from a low-power state. The computer is running, but monitor stays blank with light orange light. I often have to shut down completely and eventually the monitor will come on. I "solved" this problem running a screensaver and continuously running my computer. Unfortunately, by the time I figured it was the updates those restore points are gone from my computer, even if I click "see more restore points".

Is there more restore points to be found on the computer? Can anyone direct me to a place I can find old Nvidia drivers?

Thanks.

I found a thread about three years old on this subject but it did not answer my problem. I am using an HP desktop (new 10/06) with flat panel monitor. Recently, the monitor is taking a long time to wake up (2-4 minutes). After wake up, everything runs normally. The slow wake up occurs after sleep or on initial boot up. The PC will wake up and the blue light behind the monitor power button will start flashing slowly. During this time, I can open Aps, I just cannot see them. Eventually, the monitor wakes up and everything works fine. I checked for a new monitor driver but it said I was up to date.

Relatively minor issue, but annoying. I have my computer set to shut off my monitors (2xDell U2412M) after 20 minutes of inactivity. Which it does, except that then they immediately turn back on and only on the second 20 minute interval do they actually stay off.

Both are connected by DVI to a Radeon R9 270 video card. The same monitors and cables I was using on a previous system with a GeForce 550 Ti without this issue.

I've tried updating the Catalyst drivers, scouring the Catalyst and Windows settings looking for anything that might explain this. Initially the "Alternate DVI operation mode" was checked in the Catalyst drivers, so I undid that for both displays, no change. Not using GPU image scaling, monitors are at their native resolution, I'm dubious that it's some kind of program activity since they shut off and stay off the second time around and I haven't been using my computer in all that time. This is on an 8.1 system with all the latest patches as of today. Everything looks perfect, no graphical distortions or artifacts, and 1920x1200 is easily within the reach of DVI. So I've got nothing when it comes to explaining why this is happening, but maybe someone else out there does.

Answer:Monitor Wake After Sleep

Did you check in the monitor's menu if it has some of it's own power saving features. ? I had similar problems with one of my monitors, turning it off helped.

When I let my windows vista OP run until it goes to sleep, the computer will wake back up but the monitor will not. I can tell something is happening because the monitor light will go from yellow to green again and there is a fine blue line across the very top edge of the screen but the rest of the screen is black.

I am not sure what information to provide, if need be, do request what information of the pc i need to post here, besides I'm using another computer.

Following with the subject I guess it's a simple problem but not with me. It goes blank right after the windows startup when you switch on the computer.

I guess it's a resolution problem but how to change it? I went to safe mode, but it don't happen at desktop properties>settings

I recently reformatted the pc when I got it back from ''repair''=they said nothing wrong..

It all started when i was adjusting the screen size. There were 2 corners were slightly out so I tuned an option where reduces the size all round. The screen became smaller and smaller then poof, that was the start of this problem.

After the ''repair'', I reformatted like i said, then i installed bitdefender antivirus software. Prior to installing I need to restart right, yeah-that was the second time this monitor turned blank...

Any instruction what to do? How to set it using safe mode or something?
 

Answer:Blank Monitor, need help to wake it up

Here's the easiest way

Startup in Safe Mode (by repeatedly pressing F8 key, before Windows starts)
Log on to a Administrator account (possibly your own)
Click on Start->Run-> Devmgmt.msc

Click the + sign against the Display Adaptor (to expand it)
Right click on the expanded display adaptor and select remove (or delete)

Restart normally, to Normal mode
Re-install your Display Adapter driver if required

All done

After a recent upgrade (a forced windows upgrade) this problem began. Not a W10 install but a periodic Windows upgrade. Prior to the upgrade there were no issues.

I have dual monitors and the #2 monitor takes 5+ minutes to wake up. It does this both from either a boot up or from a sleep wake up. Just a blank (dark) screen. Once it decides to wake up everything works normally.

Answer:Monitor goes to sleep and doesn't wake up

Usually if the monitor goes to sleep in means that there is not a video signal.  However, if holding the power button down on the monitor? will wake it then the issue is the monitor.  If you are holding down the power button on the PC then you have another issue.  Which power button are you holding down? What model PC and operating system are you using?

When my computer goes to sleep, my second monitor turns off. When I wake up the laptop, but 2nd monitor is no longer recognized by the machine and I am unable to use the display. I have tried a number of solutions already:1) I have tried selecting "extend display" under F72) I have tried using the detect display button in System/Display Settings3) I have updated my drivers for both display adapaters (intel graphics 630, and NVIDIA Quadro M1200)4) I have turned the monitor on and off,5) I have cycled through the input options on the monitor while it is on6) I have plugged and unplugged the HDMI cable The only solution to reconnect the monitor I have found is to reboot the computer which is impractical for me while I am using the machine (I am running programs over multiple days and rebooting is not impossible). It is also impractical to turn off sleep mode on the machine - the whole point of having sleep mode is to save my screen and reduce power usage. I also use sleep mode for security - I want my laptop to lock so that someone can't just pick it up any time and use it. I also read somewhere that someone was able to turn off and then turn on the display adapters to reconnect - but this is a ridiculous fix I won't repeat over and over again. Outside of these solutions, has anyone found a way to make Win...

I have to manually shut it down and wait about 30-40 seconds to reboot. I have tried every one of the suggestions on these posts but nothing helped.

The series of beeps you are hearing maybe a mobo error code

Often mobo will put out a series/combination of long/short beeps identifying an error, listen to the beeps next time you hear them and check your manufacturers www for an error code list

It is not about the mouse.. Esp. if the keyboard is just as slow.

Recently my Dell XPS 625 with Windows 7 Ultimate has been doing two things:
1. It takes a long time to wake up from sleep state (5-10) minutes, at the end of which time the monitor flashes for a minute with the Dell logo, and then everything is fine.
2. When waking the monitor, the monitor flashes for 10 seconds or so with the Dell logo, and then everything is fine.

When the monitor flashes, it goes from black to Dell logo on the screen about once a second and the power button (which indicates a signal from the computer) goes off and on. (It is an old monitor and the power button is stuck permanently on.)

I installed a second HD recently. I don't think this started at the same time, but I could be wrong. There have been no other recent changes to my setup. The problem seems to be getting worse and worse as the computer seems to take longer to wake up each time. I have now disabled sleep mode, but it goes to sleep anyway sometimes.

I'm not sure where to start. Could this be purely a monitor problem? (I don't have another monitor to test it with.) I.e. can the monitor prevent the computer from waking quickly? Once it wakes up, there are no further problems. I'm not sure where to start on troubleshooting this. The warranty on the computer just expired. Any ideas?

Once again, I am compelled to guess where to post my inquiry, as I don't know what this might be about. I'm rather in the dark, along with the monitor:

For the third time over the past few weeks, when I moved the mouse to wake the monitor a short while ago, what I got was a black screen with a blinking white cursor. I can find no way to get the video part of the monitor to appear; the keyboard is somewhat active, as things such as the Caps Lock work.

Shutting down the computer, then restarting and selecting the option to restart normally works fine; that is, the usual boot process proceeds, and then my usual programs all restart correctly.

[EDIT] I meant to run sfc /scannow before posting this missive; have now run it twice, which did not report any problem(s.)

The only thing I saw in the Event Viewer was that SABKUTIL failed to load; nor overly surprising, given that a search for this driver did not find one, not even in the Device Manger with "show hidden devices" selected. The only other entry in the Event Viewer has me quite puzzled, as it refers to an unexpected system shutdown at a time that the system did not shut down; had it done so, I'd have been presented with the usual log-in screen, which was not present today until I shut the computer down to fix the blank monitor problem, and that shutdown was well over an hour after Event Viewer appears to have logged the unexpected system shut down.

I am hoping there is a simple solution to this that I am missing...

I have a laptop running Win 10 Home x64, all the latest updates. Generally, when I put it to sleep, it will wake with just pressing a button on my USB keyboard, I do not need to use the actual laptop keyboard to wake from Sleep.

I just today got a larger monitor to use as my primary display, since this laptop doesn't travel very often. It is connected via HDMI cable. Windows recognized it right away and immediately wanted to clone the display, that's the default. Then I closed my laptop--it is already set for nothing to happen when the lid closes--and interestingly, though I guess it makes sense, Windows no longer recognized the laptop's screen as a display option. So in my Display page it only detects a single Display, which is the HDMI connected monitor. OK, fine, so far, so good, I suppose, though I imagine some Display resolution settings might need some attention if I do need to use the laptop screen, but no problem.

Until I put it to sleep. When asleep it no longer wakes at my USB keyboard. If I open the laptop and press the keyboard and close it again it wakes right away on the external display, still detecting it as the only display. But it requires me to press the laptop keybaord for some reason.

The only reason that this is a hassle is because I built a display stand for the monitor to sit on and the laptop fits underneath, with just enough room for ventilation and USB access, but not really for... Read more

Hey Guys,

I am running Windows 8 on an AMD FX-8150 w/Liquid Cool with an XFX Radeon 7850 video card.
My monitor is an LG Flatron w2753v.

After leaving my computer on for a certain period of time, the monitor goes into DVI power saving mode. On my old computer running Windows 7, when that would happen, I would either hit the keyboard or move the mouse and the monitor would wake up.

However now on Windows 8, when the monitor gets into this sleep mode, hitting keys or moving the mouse will not wake the monitor up, I have to physically reboot the computer in order for the monitor to start working again.

I went into power settings and set the computer to NEVER sleep.

Is there any way to fix this?

Thanks for your time!!

Answer:LG Flatron w2753w monitor won't wake up in Windows 8

It should be a fix.

I also didn't fixed this yet: happens on a laptop.

See BIOS options as well, here I didn't found any related options there.

If the computer sleeps, only pressing the power button wakes it. At least it wakes, nothing gets lost and no reset needs to be pressed.

It looks like it hibernates instead of sleeping.

I have a R30208DY Desktop PC running Windows 10 in 64 bit mode with a VGA monitor and an HDMI monitor connected to the motherboard. All was fine until my Intel Graphics driver was updated. After this the VGA monitor failed to wake up after sleep. I spent some time several months ago with assistance of the Intel support forum investigating this. It happens even if I run with the HDMI monitor disconnected. I tried numerous versions of the Intel drivers, but the only version that works after 4300 is 4424. I decided to try periodically to see whether newly released drivers have solved the problem, so have just downloaded the latest drivers from the Intel site and from the Lenovo site and found that they still have this problem. I can reinstate the 4424 driver if it gets inadvertantly updated, but would like to think that someone at Intel recognises that there is a problem and is looking to provide a new version that repairs it. Is there any feedback to Intel from this support forum to initiate this process?

This is a new one for me. My friends monitor doesn't wake up when its in screen saver mode. Have ran AdAware and Spybot. I have also looked for anything funny in the properties to adjust the screen saver and power settings. I have found nothing unusual there. My friend was running an aquarium screen saver. But when changed to a windows screen saver, it did the samething again after a while. She has to shut down the PC at the power button to get her desktop back.

Any ideas?

I have a T470 hooked to a Lenovo USB-C dock. Both laptop and dock have latest updates, BIOS and dock firmware. Two DVI monitors are connected to the dock's DP ports with DP2DVI adapters.I got following two issues: 1. When laptop is connected to the dock and while waking it up from sleep mode, one of the monitors stays black (does not wake up) while the other one does. Pressing the monitor's power button to turn it off, and then on again, brings it to liffe. I'm pretty sure that it's a driver/firmaware issue, because it used to happen with an older USB 3 dock that I had and it was fresolved later on by a DisaplyLink driver/firmware upgrade. 2. Audio quality is noticably worse when headset is connected to the USB-C dock versus directly to the T470. When connected to the laptop, the active controller is RealTek High Definition Audio which has Dolby enhancements in its properties. When connected to the dock, the controller is ThinkPad USB-C Dock USB Audio which does not have these configuration tabs at all. I wonder if that's just a limitation of the dock station's hardware, or is it something that can be fixed by a driver/firmware release.

For the last 3 weeks both mine and my wife's monitors will not wake on moving the mouse or touching the keyboard.  I have checked and both PC's have wake on mouse/keyboard ticked.   I seem to remember that around that time we received Dell updates of some sort and it was from then on that we are having this problem.  I have checked and we have the latest drivers etc   When we move the mouse or touch the keyboard the hard drive and cpu start up but there is no response from either monitor, the only thing left to do is push the power button till it powers off.  On restart the monitor works fine.
If the screen has gone to sleep but not the pc then the monitor will come back on when either the mouse or keyboard is touched.

Once every couple of days when my monitor goes into power-saving mode, it will not wake up, no matter what keys I type, or how many mouse clicks I do. My power-saving settings within Windows 8.1 is set to No hibernation or sleep, so the PC is running while my monitor is in power-saving mode. I need to do a manual restart on my tower in order to re-start Windows. I suspect the OS may have something to do with it.

There are no BSOD errors that I see.

My hardware is as follow:
AMD X4 630 (OC)
12GB DDR3 RAM
256GB Crucial MX100 SSD
ATI RADEON 7790 1GB
and a few other HD's.

Hi, I just got a new XPS 8920 from Costco that was connected to my older Dell monitor via HDMI to DVI adapter.
The monitor comes on when I start the computer, but will not wake up automatically from sleep mode unless I push the power button on the CPU slightly. 
Is there something I can do, or is it just a problem because of incompatibility with the older monitor.
Thank you! Kim

I think after this update:
Update for Windows Vista for x64-based Systems (KB968389)

?sometimes does not bring the second monitor on after waking from S3 sleep.

It?s still in dual screen mode as I can see a taskbar window fly to the second monitor. But I have to sleep and wake again to get it to come back on.

Anyone else experience something like this? I don?t remember it ever happening before and was wondering if it could be the patch.

Severity: A

When waking up from sleep mode with a dual monitor setup, the computer does not display anything either monitor and has to be manually shut down. The problem does not seem related to motherboard settings such as Wake-On PCI-E, Spread Spectrum, or changing the suspend mode between S1/S3/S1 & S3. The cause of this problem began from a video card upgrade from a BFG 7600GT to an Asus HD4850.

The problem can be repeated with the following steps:
1.) Load Windows Vista after shutdown and don't log into a user account
2.) Wait at the login screen and then time 15-30 seconds before pressing the power button (assigned to sleep on press)
3.) Wait 15-30 seconds before pressing the power button again
4.) If computer woke-up, check off success on paper and repeat steps 2-3. If not, follow to step 5.
5.) Hold the power button and shut down the computer manually. Logged how many tries before it "craps out" from wake-up.

System info:
Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit SP1
3.1Ghz AMD X2 5000+
Asus M2A-VM Motherboard
4GB DDR2 800Mhz RAM (OCZ + Patriot)
Asus EAH4850 512MB (with two DVI to VGA converters) Catalyst 8.8

KrisM, welcome to seven and thanks for sharing this info with us. I personally have stopped using sleep because of the hang issue and having to hard power off.

For years I have had dual monitors working fine in my Win 7 machine. Then a few months ago I started having problems when the computer turn on or wakes from sleep mode. The primary monitor turns on then switches off after a second. The only remedy is to
turn off the monitor, turn on, and repeat until finally the monitor stays awake.

I have tried shutting down the computer and starting using the system restore disk - the monitor does not come on. 
I tried installing a replacement video card (and turning off the motherboard video support) the problem is the same. This indicates it is not the video driver or physical video chip.

Hi: I noticed recently that when I put my sl400 to sleep that it would not wake up, not matter what I did to it.  I tried every key, the power key etc.  and the monitor would remain blank, even though the crescent moon lcd would go off and I could hear the fan start up.  I had to shut down and turn it back on. I eventually re-imaged the computer and put it in sleep mode and it woke no problem.  I updated everything and it still woke up, then I installed F-Secure anti-virus program and the sleep/wake still worked.  Finally I added Microsoft office and then it happened, I put it to sleep and it would not wake up.  I decided to re-image one more time and went through the same steps but this time after installing F-Secure, the sleep/wake did not work.  I went on the Lenovo site and updated the video drivers as well as a few other drivers.  Nothing helped. I've read some posts on this issue but not a lot pertaining to the sl400.  Is there any specific action I could take to make this problem go away?  Basically, the system works until I add any sort of software to it.  Moderator note: Type added to subject line for clarity.

Answer:SL400: Laptop monitor will not Wake from Sleep Mode

I did notice one more thing I thought I should mention and that is that when I try to wake it from sleep, the green light on the upper right side of the keyboard (the cylinder with 2-sided arrow) lights up for a second and then goes off.  I'm pretty sure this light is the harddrive light because it is blinking as I work on the computer.  Therefore I think that the hard drive is not waking as it should be when I try to wake the laptop from sleep.

For a couple of weeks this has become an increasingly severe problem. When I start up the computer (six year old PIII 800 MHz on a Gigabyte 686BX) the monitor won't activate. Judging by hard drive activity it also seems that Win 2000 does not load all the way, activity seems to stop after some 20 secs. To solve this I have to press restart. At first once was enough, now four or five restarts are necessary to wake up the monitor.

Worn out computer? Worn out graphics card? Or what?

Thanks
 

Answer:Startup problem - monitor wake up requires restart

What operating system are you using? Can you start up easier in safe mode? Google on "safe mode" for instructions. Does a scandisk show any bad sectors? Have you defragged the hard drive recently? Do you have the CD or disks to allow a re-install of your OS? Could be some loose connections inside the case too.

I am running window 10 and recently (this problem may have to do with updates) when my monitor goes to sleep it has a difficult time waking.  It takes anywhere from 30 seconds to over a minute to wake up.  I have shut it down, messed with disconnecting and reconnecting cables but no results.  This has been going on for about 2-3 weeks, so if it is an upgrade from microsoft, how is it possible to do a system recovery and get the right update culprit - if that is really what is going on.

I have my work computer set to turn the monitor off after 20 minutes in Display->Screen Saver->Power. When I move my mouse in the morning to get my monitor to turn back on Outlook always closes. Any ideas why this would be happening?
 

Answer:Outlook closes when I move my mouse to wake my monitor

Thats weird... Just speculation, but maybe another program is leaking into outlook's memory, or possibly even a spam-generating-virus starting up during power-saving mode and crashing while its in there.

Here is what I would try, in order:
1. Scan for spyware and viruses
2. Reinstall tha latest major service packs for Office and Windows
3. Check for the latest patches, and install them. http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6/

If that doesn't help, you may need to see is some other app is the problem. Possible culprets are browser toolbars and plugins and downloaded screensavers.

More of a workaround than a fix, you may want to try Thunderbird for email, it's really very nice anyhow. http://www.mozilla.com/thunderbird/

This is not a typical BSOD crash. My Dell Inspiron's monitor intermittently doesn't wake up once power management shuts it off. The problem is monitor doesn't fully shut off. One way to know the monitor won't wake up is when the CPU is griding away, fan is on full blast, laptop heated up, monitor still has a faint white brightness but no disk activity. I have tried connecting the laptop HDMI and VGA output different monitors and TVs but the monitor/ TV doesn't recognize any input signal during this phase. Yesterday, CPU suddenly started griding away without a pause while I was working and the base plastic was so hot I couldn't place it on my lap anymore. System Idle was 95-99%; I wanted to check whether laptop will not wakeup after power management kicks and this morning I couldn't wake up the laptop and had to cold boot it

I cannot put my laptop to sleep or hibernate when this occurs, the computer will just keep griding away with fan at full blast but will never hibernate or sleep.

I've run chkdsk, defrag etc but no issues were reported. I have checked for viruses etc, nothing obvious. Any help on what I can do next and how to investigate this further would help.

Thanks in advance

No issues in waking up from sleep when not connected to HDMI port. When it is connected, the machine won't wake from sleep.  Any thoughts? This is sleep, not hibernation. Also, tried unplugging the monitor once asleep and this does not help. The only way to recover from the sleep issue is to hold the start button for 4 second and hard reboot the machine.

Hi, I am having an issue with my HP monitor, I have owned the monitor for at least two years and have a second monitor of the same model that I do not have this issue with just the right monitor. What happens is when I turn the monitor off (physically pushing the button)  and come back later and turn it on the screen comes up for a few seconds then suddenly goes black. When the screen goes black the blue power LED is still on and does not change color. To get the monitor to wake up I have to turn it off and on multiple times while quickly moving the mouse until it eventually undims and stays on. I have no idea what is causing this and playing with the monitor settings/ switching back to defaults did not help. I know it is not a signal problem from my graphics card as the left monitor is on and functioning properly while this is taking place.

I have a Western Digital 7gig hard drive installed as the second drive. Frequently it will not be found when the computer boots. About the other half of the time, all works normally.

The problem first becomes apparent when the BIOS looks for the drives. It will hesitate for a LONG time, then find the first drive, and not find the second drive. If this happens, the drive activity light will stay steadily lit for as long as the computer is turned on - no blinking, always on.

Can anyone advise me, or give me a good guess, whether the problem is likely the drive, power to the drive, or the IDE controller?

Thanks!

I have this big problem since I have received my P50 (at least for one year now). It is a 7600HQ machine with a Quadro 1000M video card. Let's say I start my day by turning on the laptop. The laptop boots. I see the Windows login screen. If I wait a little the P50 crashed very hard. The screen shows the artifact in the screenshot I have attached but sometimes I see an even color (like yellow) instead of the artifacts. The whole system is frozen. The lights on the keyboard do not react (num lock for example). So I hard reset the laptop using the power button and this repeats for around 10 times before it is booted correctly. And after this: the P50 is rock solid. It stays on for days at a time. Multiple VM's running, 32GB memory, M.2 SSD. Fully functional. So I thought it was Windows and installed Linux. This showed the exact same behavior. Some things to consider: 1. Only happens when I turn on the computer after some down time2. Once up it is rock solid3.

I have a c200 425 3gu all-in-one that has been very frustrating for 2 issues.   Since I've had it: 1.  On booting the computer, the screen is black.  I have to put it in sleep mode using fn/pc key, then once the power button is flashing (which sometimes takes several fn/pc hold downs), i think push the power button briefly.   Then the monitor display led turns on showing the monitor has been switched off.  Then I push the monitor power button and I have display.  If I put it to sleep instead of turning off computer, it does the same thing.    I have waded around the Lenovo support site until I feel like puking.   There must be a simple fix and it must be a problem on more than just my machine.   Very frustrating.     2. Slow.   I have DSL, which isn't great but i regularly get 3MB download.   On my Dell laptop using a wireless connection, I have this speed.   On my bluray player I have this speed, again a wireless.   But on the C200, I have half the speed, whether wired or wireless.   I've turned off all virus and malware software, deleted all uncessary programs - plenty of hard drive space.   There is no gaming software or any fancy software.   This machine is just used for web surfing.   1GB Ram.   This thing should be faster.  Any ideas?

hi Lews,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community.
 
Regarading your questions, try to:
 
1. Reboot the computer in Safe Mode . If the problem doesn't occur, open Device Manager (click Start > Device Manager) and under Display Adapters, uninstall the display driver (this can be an Intel GMA3150 or Nvidia G305M). To reboot into normal mode, open msconfig and under General Tab, set it to Normal Startup and observe.
 
If the issue persists, but can hear something on the background, there's a possible short on the function board (this is the chip that controls the buttons at the lower right side of the screen) and you will need to contact Lenovo support for service. Support phone list here.
2. For slow Wifi, If you have the Atheros AR9285 Wireless Adapter and running Windows 7, you can try to:
a. Update your wireless card driver to v10.0.0.75, get it here.
b. Depending on your brand of router, make sure you disable WMM (Wireless Multimedia) and WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup)
c. Use WPA/WPA2-PSK TKIP or AES encryption.
d. If you have a dual band router (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz), try to use only 2.4Ghz band.
e. After applying steps a-d, try running a speedtest again via www.speedtest.net
 
 
Let me know your findings.
 
Cheers.
