Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

While typing (dell inspiron1520 laptop)on or off line sometimes my screen turns off


Answers :

Hi there.
I am working on the assumption that its Vista that's installed on the laptop, if its XP its just about the same.
Go to the control panel and select power options, in power options you can set what the PC does regarding power saving, in the list you will stuff like when to turn of the display etc, this is what you have to change, set the display and the hard drive to NEVER turn off and also disable it from going to sleep as sleep mode can cause problems even if your using the computer at the same time.
Please post back with the results and for any more help or advice if needed.

Kind regards and thanks for using FixYa!!
